October 12th is a very special occasion as, in addition to being Children’s Day, it is also a national holiday, which means everyone can stay together at home and enjoy video games as a family! With that in mind, we have prepared a special selection with 10 multiplayer games tailored to entertain players of all ages and profiles. Check out!
It Takes Two (PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4)
One of the strongest candidates for the best game of 2021, It Takes Two it is special in that it necessarily requires cooperation between two simultaneous players, as each of them takes control of one of the protagonists as they try to solve puzzles, overcome enemies and defeat bosses. It takes a lot of coordination, communication and teamwork!
Overcooked All you Can Eat Edition (PC, Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One)
Both the first and the second Overcooked are excellent games to play in a group, and the new edition Overcooked All You Can Eat Edition it’s even better for bringing together all the content of both games in one package, with technical improvements and lots of confusion for you and your friends to solve in the craziest kitchens of video games!
Qualquer LEGO (PC, Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One)
There are dozens of titles LEGO spread across all consoles, and while the adventures take advantage of different popular pop culture licenses, there’s a common thread among all games: they’re perfect for cooperative play! The series alternates well between light banging and clever puzzles that revolve around the famous building blocks. If you don’t know where to start, check out our ranking with the best LEGO games:
Wario Ware Get it Together! (Switch)
Many series revolve around minigames, but only Wario and his gang can have fun with MICRO games! In Wario Ware Get it Together!, there are hundreds of them for you to explore alone or with a friend, all lasting just over a few seconds. At that time you need to quickly understand the rules and objectives, and then try to complete them quickly and accurately. It’s ideal for those who want to have a good laugh!
River City Girls (PC, Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox One)
Although beat ’em ups reached their peak in the 1980s and 1990s, nowadays we also have great options for those who like this very arcade genre. Streets of Rage 4 e Battletoads are essential for anyone wanting to relive the times of arcades, but no title is as fun, creative and polished as the gem River City Girls. Call a friend and take out all the criminals along the way in style, but be careful because the game only has local multiplayer, not online!
Portal 2 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
Portal is one of the most creative series in video games, and is often remembered—in all fairness—for its hilarious characters and writing. But the fact is, the ingenious puzzles involving transporting objects through portals are worth the download on their own, and the second chapter of the franchise even includes its own two-player adventure campaign! Thinking about solving problems together is even more addictive!
Super Mario Maker 2 (Switch)
Playing video games with other people is always great, but how about playing levels made directly by your family and friends? In Super Mario Maker 2 you can do this, whether it’s designing the levels with the help of your loved ones, or even challenging them to overcome the challenges you created yourself! We even ventured to create some phases here:
Cuphead (PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch)
The most hardcore option on our list goes to those super-skilled kids, who aren’t afraid of challenges or dying multiple times in the same stage until they’ve memorized all their patterns and obstacles. Cuphead is a love letter to the old platform games and, unlike what you’d expect, it gets even more difficult with two players sharing the screen space!
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch)
Although it is possible to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe cooperatively, everyone knows that the real fun of Nintendo’s popular racing franchise lies in sabotaging everyone and everything with its items and powers. There’s nothing more satisfying than taking your friend’s victory down the home stretch with a red hoof slamming into them, so celebrate Children’s Day by destroying some friendships!
Minecraft Dungeons (PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Switch, PS4)
Minecraft is one of the greatest games of all time, and the original adventure is a great choice to spend an entire day building breathtaking buildings or even trying to survive the dangers of the world. But today we want to highlight this spin-off that many people missed: Minecraft Dungeons get inspiration from Diablo and offers an inspired journey in dungeon crawler style, but now in the enthralling universe of Mojang!
And that was our selection of 10 great games to enjoy cooperatively this Children’s Day! Did you already know them all? Are you thinking of getting one of them to play with your kids, parents or friends? Let us know in the comments below!
