    I missed this — Nintendo played it up with the announcement as if local co-op is new but it was in the PC release and the console release too. Changed the headline to reflect that

    I wonder if the game is going to use the joycons’ motion controls, seems like an obvious fit for a rhythm game. It already supports dance-pads, so why not?

    Oh I see. I think I prefer the Necrodancer one better.

    no problem. I just want you to know that necrodancer is not the origin of the gif.

    O geez, I don’t know what character could be added for Nintendo, maybe 5 foot tall character that looks human maybe give him some red so he stand out from all the brown…
