It Takes Two, the new co-op platformer from A Way Out designer Josef Fares, has dropped its latest trailer and the game is looking promising. The trailer mainly focuses on It Takes Two’s impressively varied levels, with Fares promises that no two stages be alike. One level seen in the trailer takes the form of a third-person shooter, with players shooting wasps with “sap guns,” another focuses on using magnets to platform and solve puzzles, and yet another works in time control and clones. Expect each stage to have its own unique visual style as well.
Fares also rejects the typical 3D platformer focus on collecting “shiny shit,” in favor of filling levels with fun interactive elements and minigames. Could this game be the kick in the pants the 3D platformer genre has been needing? Let’s hope so! You can check out the new trailer, below.
