The game is part side scrolling beat em up, part endless runner, and all ninja salad slicing action. There's a dressing of rogue like elements added in for good measure to keep you coming back for more as you work through the game's colorful story.

Fury Unleashed Update Adds Local Co-OpJason Love

The setup for Fury Unleashed is that things are going very wrong in the comic book multiverse and it's up to you - a former popular hero within the comics world - to set things right. Each of the three comic stories are set, but your playthroughs will vary each time as they are procedurally generated. If you die, you'll have to start all over again, but the ink you'll collect during each run stays with you and can be used to unlock upgrades and new weapons.

If you're unfamiliar with the game, it falls within the broad genre of "action platformer" where you assume the role of a member of law enforcement and have to take out all the bad guys in a level while also completing other objectives, such as rescuing hostages, defusing a bomb, or arresting a particular person. Clearing a stage is usually methodical; get as much information as you can about a room before entering, kick the door down, eliminate the enemies, proceed to the next one. Despite the methodical approach, the action itself is very quick. Most engagements last a few seconds with either you or the bad guys dead, and I've lost those gun battles more than once due to thinking I didn't need to reload my gun.

With the implementation of the Nintendo Switch Online Service today, you will need an active subscription to play this new co-op challenge with friends over the Internet. Fortunately, you can also play locally with four friends provided every one has their own Joy-Con as the challenge uses the "Swing Mode" mechanics where you swing the Joy-Con like a tennis racket. You can check out the full list of changes and updates in the patch notes over on the Nintendo Support site.

Sounds like a bad decision, personally, but I'll let you be the judge.

The title originally debuted on PC back in 2013 and gained a lot of attention thanks to streamers. Wacky hijinks are always good viewing. It eventually made its way to the PlayStation 4, where local co-op was patched in, then to a variety of VR platforms, and now, to the Switch. Like the PlayStation 4 version, local co-op play is supported on the Switch version so you can work together to perform delicate surgery with imprecise controls.

Warner Bros. has released some information on the game's Season Pass, which is very much in vogue for the LEGO video games these days.  Should you pick it up, the Pass will grant you six packs of new levels and four packs of characters, all released in regular intervals post-release.

All of this additional content has since been bundled into the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove package, which will be getting a physical release on April 9th, 2019.  The digital version is already out and currently contains the base game, the two available story expansions, and some additional goodies.  However, the third and final expansion, "King of Cards", will also be released on the same day, meaning it will be included in the physical version and available as a free download to those who currently own the digital version.

Galaxy Champions TV adds a few features to the formula to bring the gameplay to 2018. The most notable changes are upgradeable weapons and character leveling. After you complete each room you'll be given a choice of three character or weapon upgrades. During the few runs I tried I got everything from character speed and health to weapon range and power.

A lot of the changes here are quality-of-life stuff, like making the inventory better to navigate/manipulate, making the quest journal easier to parse, and other UI improvements, and balancing changes including adding a new/easier difficulty mode if you just want to engage in the story without having to worry too much about combat. Perhaps the bigger change, though (and you should just avoid everything from page 14 on), is an overhaul of the third act of the game. Seems a lot of folks had some issues with the story beats and how certain elements played out so Larian Studios revamped things.

The update is available now and you can check out the official post on the Halo Waypoint site for all the details on what it includes (such as visual enhancements if you're on the Xbox One X, "intelligent delivery" so you can choose what to install, and faster load times), but the real highlight here is adding LAN support. This means you and your buddies can all get together with your individual TVs and Xbox Ones, connect them to a network hub, and game together without needing any Internet connection at all. Per 343, here's how you set that up:

In addition to this DLC news, the video officially announces that the game will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch with a tantalizing “coming soon” time frame. Unfortunately, it appears that the DLC and co-op are only headed to the PC version for now, with no word on when they might be available on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, or if it will be available for the Switch version when it launches. The full video covering all of the DLC, co-op, and Nintendo Switch version can be found below, but if you (like us here at Co-Optimus) are excited about the co-op, you can find that bit of news at the 3:10 mark.

Before getting into what you can see in the trailer below, just want to give a quick shout out to the art style here. From the environments to the motion of protagonists Tristan and Jenn and the enemies, Young Souls has a great look. Hopefully the gameplay matches! Speaking of, while there are a lot of jump cuts and scant seconds spent with anything meaningful, there are a few things we noticed.
