Surgeon Simulator Out Today on Nintendo SwitchJason Love

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.

The announcement came just prior to this year's Gamescom, which officially kicked off today. While the announcement trailer just shows off what you're doing in the game, it was the language of the press announcement we received that revealed the change in features, as you'll see below.

While the first Aces of Luftwaffe app featured no co-op, this sequel adds all of the co-op we here at Co-Optimus are fond of, including up to full 4-player couch co-op support. The name “Squadron” at the end of the title also lets you know this one is intended to bond buddies as they bust baddies, be it in biplanes or bombers. If you want the full release trailer you can check it out below!

Following the initial announcement last year during Paris Games Week, things went pretty quiet other than the reveal that the game would be making its way onto PC via Steam this past March. Then, earlier this week, Drinkbox Studios posted the happy news that Guacamelee! 2 will be arriving on the PlayStation 4 and PC in just a few weeks' time on August 21, 2018. That means this time next month, you and up to three of your friends can sit down on the couch (or huddle around a computer screen) and deploy all your best wrestling moves against a cavalcade of monsters and skeletons!

The title features two player couch or online co-op throughout the main game mode, with each player controlling one of the two initial characters: Nina and Ace. Both characters have their own unique movesets and weapons, and additional characters can be unlocked by completing certain objectives in the game. The console versions of 20XX will also include two characters that were released as DLC on the PC, Hawk and Draco.

The development team wanted to shift the focus a little bit this time around for Unravel Two. Where the first game involved controlling the anthropomorphic Yarny as it revisits the memories of its owner's life and the love that connected them all, the second game focuses on the journey and bond that forms when two people set out on an adventure together. Here's how Martin Sahlin, Creative Director at Coldwood, described it during the presentation:

The title will support online co-op for up to four players, so you and your buddies can all take a bus and drive around the city. Try your best not to run into each other or play chicken, though, ok? People are depending on you to safely take them from one location to another. Bus Simulator 18 will also launch with mod and Steam Workshop support, so you can expect some rather interesting community developed add-ons to spice things up a bit.

The game originally debuted on PC back in October 2014. You can read my full review here, but the quick summary: I really enjoyed it. The combo/"Fatality" mechanic introduced an interesting way to approach combat - as you had to juggle a little bit of risk/reward for clearing enemies vs getting the most money (used to revive and buy upgrades) possible - and the "evolving" bosses added another layer of strategy for how you chose to tackle, and in what order, each level. If you're a beat-em-up fan, I think it's definitely worth checking out, especially on the Switch where the "play anywhere" nature means there's always a couch (or bench, or chairs + table) nearby.

There's a certain "Fallout meets Fortnite" vibe I get from seeing the game in action. While there are in-game crates you'll earn from playing that provide you with new weapons, defenses, and a boat-load of customization items for your in-game character, the devs have made a point of stating that there are no microtransactions, so the only way to get those crates is when you get one from gaining enough XP. The main game mode pits you and your buddies against a few waves of foes before the final "boss" wave, while the "endless" mode lets you go until you're finally overrun.

While the developer's past couple titles have been variations of the cyberpunk idea and played around with some different gameplay mechanics, Tesla vs Lovecraft is a little more in-line with their most famous shooter: Crimsonland. Rather than progressing through a series of levels, you'll be dropped into an arena and will have to take down all of the Eldritch horrors you can. As you kill Lovecraft's minions, you'll level up and earn new perks (such as doing increased damage, or firing more bullets per shot) that will be used for the rest of the time in that arena (i.e., once you beat the arena or die, they go away). There are also permanent perks/upgrades that you can acquire by completing daily challenges.
