Playing as two characters without delay is an idea that designers have been iterating on for many years. From the forgotten Namco puzzle game Libble Rabble to the trendy Platinum Games action-adventure Astral Chain, the idea has seen use in lots of contexts. Mario Kart veterans probably keep in mind the times of Mario Kart: Double Dash!! on the Nintendo GameCube. Others could also be acquainted with JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future, Persona 4 Arena, and varied tag crew fighting video games. And after all, there have been loads of squad-based shooters the place gamers can ship orders to their teammates like Star Wars: Republic Commando.
