Pocky & Rocky Reshrined is a beautiful top-down shooter from Natsume and ININ Games. The latest in a long-running series that started with Kiki Kaikai, Reshrined offers five playable characters, a fresh story mode, and 2-player local co-op. Players can't just jump into the cooperative Free Mode, however. It normally has to be unlocked by completing Story Mode solo, which could take hours. Thankfully, we've got a code to unlock co-op right away!
The normal unlocking conditions for Free Mode are: beat Story Mode or collect 10,000 coins. Story mode can be completed in a couple of hours by skilled players. Collecting 10,000 coins actually takes longer but isn't as dependent on skill.
To unlock Free Mode right away:
- From the title screen, go to the main menu.
- Press the following directional inputs on the D-Pad:
- Left, Left, Left, Left
- Right, Right, Right, Right
- Left, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right
- If done correctly, the auto-save icon will appear in the lower-right corner of the screen and Free Mode will become available.
In Free Mode, players can select from any unlocked character (the three new characters still have to be unlocked in Story Mode), choose between Normal and Hard difficulties, and then play through the game arcade-style with 1 or 2 local players. This mystical adventure is even more fun friend a friend! See our co-op review for more details.
