The new Earth Defense Force: World Brothers game may look like a "Minecraft" but it's anything but. The game still maintains the over the top campy action of the series, but layers on thick layers of "videogame." It feels almost like playing a classic game with the fanfare music and sound effects combined with the 8-bit style graphics. Okajima-san said that the team spent weeks in pre-development getting the size of the voxels and the position of the cameras just right to showcase the destruction and scale with the new art style, and it definitely pays off.

A Review of Indie Co-op GamesSponsored

These games are available anywhere, but if you’re looking for a unique co-op gameplay experience, there may only be one way to go: indie co-op games.

Alongside the base game, the "Gourmet Edition" will contain four DLC packs adding new levels, items, chefs, and recipes.  It'll also include a fifth cosmetic pack offering a few extra options for the game's goofy chefs.  There's a whole lot of content in here, so check out the official descriptions for a better understanding:

While "Rise of the Phoenix" focused on the X-Men (specifically Gambit, Cable, Phoenix, and Iceman), this forthcoming DLC will bring to the fore everyone's favorite Marvel supergroup not named "The Avengers".  If the title is anything to go by, they'll be taking on their perennial foe, Dr. Doom, in one form or another.

The first bit of DLC for the games will arrive sometime in June 2020 and is titled "The Isle of Armor." This will add a new open area to the game (similar to the "Wild Area") and focus on "growing as a trainer" under the tutelage of a former champion called Mustard. (... really?) As a part of that, you'll gain a new Legendary Fighting-type Pokemon, Kubfu, that can evolve into Urshifu, which has two different styles that appear to be tied to which version of the game you have. Additional Pokemon will be added to the game, including Bulbasaur and Squirtle, so you'll have any more of them to catch, and there will be new clothing and accessory options.

The new content adds two new chefs to use (Present Head Chef and Reindeer Chef), five new recipes to cook/bake, new enemies in the Horde Mode, and five "festive kitchens" that are makeovers of kitchens from each of the paid DLC expansions ("Campfire Cook Off," "Night of the Hangry Horde," and "Carnival of Chaos"). If you've got your platform of choice to auto-update your games, you'll have this content already and can go to "Extras" in the main menu, then "Seasonal Updates" to access it. If you don't auto-update, then you'll need to download the update first before you play.

The "Multiplayer Pack" will include two parts, though both seem to include the same types of content. The first part arrives April 30, 2020, and will include three new mini-games for the competitive ScreamPark Mode and three new outfits for Luigi to wear in the ScareScraper mode with "matching floor themes and themed ghosts." The second part arrives July 31, 2020 and will be more of the same. Both parts must be purchased together as part of the "Multiplayer Pack" bundle, which is available for $10. On the one hand, it's a bummer they're not adding anything significant to the co-op mode; on the other, CHECK OUT LUIGI'S ROCKING BOUFFANT!!!!

The DLC also includes new levels for the "Gauntlet" mode, which was added as part of the previously released "Curse of the Vampire" DLC, and new outfits for different characters. Much like the previous DLC, you'll only be able to get "Rise of the Phoenix" if you purchase the $20 Expansion Pass. On the plus side, you'll not only get this DLC and the "Vampire" DLC, but the Fantastic Four themed "Shadow of Doom" DLC that is set to release sometime Spring 2020.

I detailed many of the failings of Super Mario Maker 2's co-op offerings in my review, but this patch has addressed some of those issues/concerns. Prior to this update, online play was always with strangers and it was always a randomly selected course from "Course World," and you could only do the four player couch co-op with courses you downloaded (or created yourself). These change make the game much more co-op friendly, although it still doesn't have a "co-op" tag for courses and uploading courses still requires them to be beaten single-player, so if you want to play something that needs cooperation to clear it, you'll just have to make it yourself and not upload it.

While both the “ScareScraper” and “ScreamPark” content are punny (Skyscraper and Theme Park, respectively) it’s unfortunate that Nintendo did not go to further lengths to explain to the waiting community what this post-launch content would bring, especially so close to the release date. Further, the website only lists the content as a sole bullet point, stating; “Paid DLC will come to Luigi's Mansion 3 in the future, adding new content to the ScareScraper and ScreamPark multiplayer modes.” Not only do we not know what it is, we also don’t know when it is - spooky.

The update (version 1.1.0) adds a new Infinity Rift (Phi) that conveniently resembles an "X." The first two challenges you can tackle in this Rift are the ones to unlock Cyclops and Colossus, which are fairly easy and only require a team of characters around level 25 to beat. Both characters start around level 22 and add a few new Team Synergies to the mix (Heavy Metal, All-New X-Men, Sharpshooters, and Team Leaders).
