The Switch is Nintendo’s unexpected smash hit that hasn’t lost steam since its 2017 release. This is largely due to the system’s myriad features that attract both casual game enthusiasts and their more hard-core counterparts.
Everything from the system’s handheld capabilities to its long list of third-party offerings have contributed to the system’s popularity but its optimization for two-player gameplay, via the detachable joycons, is the Switch’s true selling point. Few are more aware of this than game developers. Through their efforts, they have turned the Switch into a system with promise to the ideal platform for co-op gameplay.
