Also, that's a great trailer to that game. Man, there's too much to play on the switch. I usually hop on the shop every few weeks and marvel at the games that have been added, several of which I've never heard of. Good on you, Nintendo! What an awesome problem to have.
Wait, when did Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime release? It's not on the list but I read somewhere that it released the 3rd? Since when do games release on a Tuesday?
It's a fun / unique local co-op game where you're all controlling the same big spaceship with multiple stations everyone can run around to to move, shoot, etc. Requires some real coordination. It was pretty well reviewed too and it's worth checking out.
@carlosrox Volgarr is BRUTAL at first. Even when you learn what you need to do, you'll still fail at it a bunch, even the parts you're well familiar with. But at some point it just clicks, and suddenly everything is completely reflexive. After a few hours I was cruising through the early levels, and even the later ones that were completely new to me benefit tremendously from the muscle memory the early game beats into you.
