We knew that Astral Chain had a local cooperative for two players, with the use of a Joy-Con for each user. Although in the writing we have not yet been able to prove the coop side, the operation is based on a player handling the protagonist police (man or woman, as we select at the beginning of the game) and the other player controls the legion, a special unit that in the game is presented in five different variants.
As we have seen, it is not necessary to start a campaign in coop, but a user can join in the middle of the game that we have started. In this mode, and according to those responsible, the challenge level of Astral Chain increases, because it is more difficult for players to synchronize their actions. It is not a coop in one player carries the weight of the action and the other simply attends: both are important, and the configuration of buttons makes us see it.
For example, the police player attacks and interactions with the environment, while the legion player has control over the camera, the jumps and even the photo mode (which is another of the things that the videogame will bring) . We are waiting to learn more data, but the cooperative promises to be another of the most important values of a video game will appear next August 30 on Nintendo Switch.
