Taking one look at this game might remind you heavily of Castlevania, until you see how crazy this game gets. Created by Kouichi Yotsui of Strider fame, Moon Diver is a cooperative side-scrolling action game that involves ninjas known as Moondivers to reclaim their planet taken by an evil power. Story aside, the game looks chaotic all for good reasons highlighting platforming segments, crazy boss battles, and amazing attack animations. Watching the trailer, I can’t help but think of the rage that I’ll be succumbed to when trying to coordinate three other people to proceed through the game without dying or missing jumps.
They seem to have what makes co-op in games nailed down. The Diver System is in place that allows full drop-in/drop-out for whenever somebody is ready, which is great for people to get some game in before their friends hop online. They also allow you to change the difficulty on the fly which can affect how highly you are rewarded. Sadly, not many new details have emerged, including release date, but we will keep you posted as more news is announced. Check out the video trailer below to hold you over for now.
