Today is a big day for local co-op players
Friday, March 25 marks a huge day for local co-op gamers as two major new local co-op games have just launched for multiple platforms.
Local co-op is something of a dying art form, with most multiplayer games being web-only and no local co-op options. However, Friday, March 25 bucks that trend by giving local co-op players not one, but two high-level local co-op games to choose from.
March 25 is a big day for co-op fans in general, but what makes today especially exciting for local co-op players is that the new releases both have local co-op options. The first is Kirby and the Forgotten Land, a Nintendo Switch exclusive that is Kirby’s first full-fledged 3D platforming adventure. Although that would be enough for many Kirby fans to get excited about Kirby and the Forgotten Landthe inclusion of the local co-op takes things to the next level.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land Co-op allows players to bring a friend with them to play Kirby’s new adventure together. Player one controls Kirby and has access to his new abilities, while player two controls Waddle Dee, who also has a few unique tricks up his sleeve. Kirby and the Forgotten Land received rave reviews from critics impressed with Kirby’s latest offering, so it looks like it should be a surefire hit for local co-op fans.
The other local cooperative game offered is The wonders of Tiny Tinawhich is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. A spin-off from Gearbox Software Borderlands franchise, The wonders of Tiny Tina received mostly positive reviews from critics. It offers a vast action-RPG experience for players to enjoy with up to 4-player online and 2-player local split-screen co-op.
There were serious problems with Borderlands 3 split screen which have thankfully been ironed out with The wonders of Tiny Tina. Players no longer experience lag when playing split-screen, and there are now options for both horizontal and vertical split-screen modes. The wonders of Tiny Tina is a huge improvement over Borderlands 3 When it comes to the local co-op experience, anyone in need of a new local co-op game should seriously consider giving it a shot.
Looking ahead, there are even more local co-op games to look forward to in the near future, including the highly anticipated LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Sagacurrently slated for release on April 5 on many platforms, not to mention Switch exclusive house of death remake which comes out on April 7th.
