The Definitive Edition skins are for Zelda and Link both, but according to Nintendo’s site the game; “...will include every map and mission, plus all 29 playable characters from both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game, along with all of the previous paid downloadable content.” This means anyone who skipped the original iterations of the game will have a great chance to jump in.

Donkey Kong Getting Some Love on the Switch This SpringJason Love

Donkey Kong's addition to Mario + Rabbids was hinted at early on with the promise that the DLC packs for the game would include weapons (delivered at launch with the "Pixel Pack" and "Steampunk Pack"), new challenges (delivered last October with the "Ultra Challenge Pack"), and "new story content." It appears Donkey Kong's arrival will be the aforementioned story content as not only will he be a playable character, but a new single-player story mission will be added to the game as well. While it's a shame you won't be able to play that mission with a buddy, at least you'll still be able to enjoy using Donkey Kong himself in the separate co-op missions.

Prior to the update, local co-op on the Switch version required each player to have their own controller; meaning one person had to use a Pro Controller while the other used the two Joy-Cons that came with the system, or both players would need a pair of Joy-Cons. Since the update went live last month, the game should update automatically. However, if you want to update manually, simply navigate to the Software Update screen and do so from there.

Star Wars is on everyone’s mind right now. With the release of Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and the Disney train going full speed ahead on the franchise, it’s difficult to not find someone talking about Star Wars. Two years after EA rebooted the Star Wars Battlefront franchise we’re now seeing a sequel hoping to bring the video gam...

In 2016, a mobile shoot ‘em up called Sky Force Anniversary made its way to consoles. Despite the humble origins, it proved to be a surprisingly robust and addictive game. Now Infinite Dreams has released the sequel Sky Force Reloaded on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam. With two-player local co-op and loads of new content, Reloaded just mi...

Based on what's said in the trailer (see below), it sounds like this trial will provide your co-op buddy of choice the ability to play through the entirety of the campaign with you online; no time limit or "play to certain point." When the title was debuted at this year's E3, Josef talked about how the entire thing has been designed to be a co-op experience that requires a second person to play it, ideally on the couch. If you don't have a local co-op buddy, then the free trial will provide an avenue for you to still enjoy it. One person buys the game, and your buddy can download the co-op trial to play through it with you. That's it.

I only ever played a little of the original Door Kickers, though I know both Nick and Locke really dug the top-down tactical action that it offered. Changing the format to a side-scrolling action platformer left both of them wondering how tactical it would be, and we were all pleasantly surprised by what KillHouse has done with this follow-up. Each level presents players with a set objective (e.g., rescue all hostages, clear all hostiles, or defuse a bomb), and the way you go about achieving said objective is entirely up to you and your co-op buddy. For example, two enemies standing below two skylights presents a great chance for you and your buddy to do a quick little countdown and drop down on the baddies simultaneously. You could also drop down on your own (assuming you're playing as the "Shield" class) to attract their attention/fire, while your buddy drops down a little after behind them and takes them out. The way you go about doing all of this is entirely up to you and elements of the game reminded us of titles like GunpointRonin, and Hotline: Miami.

Call of Duty: WWII returns players to the original theater of war that made the series popular, World War II. Both the original and the highly popular sequel, Call of Duty 2, put players into famous battle, but it was the second game’s d-day invasion mission, as players stormed the beaches of Normandy, that drew players into the game on a con...

Gears of War 4 was published by Microsoft Studios and the official announcement video below is per Xbox so both creations are straight out of Microsoft’s own kitchen. In the video, the different enhancements are laid out, but according to VG247 the upgrades are options the player can switch between.

When Raiden V launched in the Spring of 2016 for the Xbox One I was shocked and dismayed to see it was the first game in the series to not offer a co-op mode. Blasphemy I thought. The good thing is, developer MOSS thought the same thing. Now available on PlayStation 4 and PC is Raiden V: Director’s Cut - a definitive version of the game with ...
