Did they just make a character based on Joy-Cons...?

Yes, Yes they did. Even her shoes are Joy-Con colored. Yet somehow I completely missed that when I first watched the direct, like they weren't een being remotely suble about it! XD

This game is almost 5 years old and was free on Steam a while ago. Asking $50 for it on Switch is commercial suicide.

And yet people will buy it because it's on Switch and it's arriving still early in the console's life cycle.

When's this out? I'm interested. Does this need a heavy amount of cooperation between teammates?

caffeinade (on 11 January 2018)

It is better with friends, and / or a good team.
Assuming it is like the PC version, you can go solo if you wish (with bots).

My friend is predominantly a solo player, and he does fine.
