When their daughter Rose creates dolls of her parents which magically come alive, Cody and May must work together to overcome a series of challenges in a fantastical world that only exists as a result of their fractured relationship.
In a recently published hands-on preview based on a small two-stage section of the game, VGC said It Takes Two “may be 2021’s biggest surprise” and “has the potential to be a co-op masterpiece”.
“So far, we’re thoroughly impressed with what we’ve played of It Takes Two,” our write-up concluded. “If it can continue to show this level of creativity for its entire duration we could be looking at one of the finest co-op adventures ever created. If it can do this while throwing in a few surprises during what at the moment looks set to be a predictable story arc, then all the better.”
It Takes Two is available to pre-order for $39.99/£34.99, with the PS4 and Xbox One versions including a free upgrade to the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions respectively.
The title comes with a Friend’s Pass which allows the owner of the game to invite another player to join online co-op with them for free.
