Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu/Eevee

The Pokemon series made its debut on the Switch with the release of Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee this November.

While each game can be played entirely alone as you return to the familiar Kanto region to search for the original 151 and fight the Elite Four, there are also options for you and a friend to play through together in local co-op.

Two players can each use one Joy-Con controller to catch and fight Pokemon alongside each other in-game, and the Poke Ball Plus accessory also works as a separate controller as well. The second player will essentially be a support character when walking around in the wild, but can directly aid the first player in battles and when trying to catch Pokemon using the Pokeball throwing mechanics from Pokemon Go!

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on Nov. 16.

Hitman 2 in a best co-op list? Believe it or not this normally single-player experience has a great co-op mode where you and a friend can play online in the “Sniper Assassin” mode.

In this mode you work as a team to eliminate target enemies on various maps. You play as Stone and Knight using sniper rifles form a distance. Communication is key as you strategize the perfect times to take out the targets without compromising your position.

Each player uses special ammo as well, with Stone having concussive shockwave rounds and Knight using wall-piercing ammo.

Online matchmaking is not functional for this mode, so you will only be able to play online with an actual friend in mind.

Hitman 2 released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on Nov. 13.

This indie puzzler from Handy Games focuses on co-op so much, the word is in the game title itself.

Communicate to work your way through complicated mazes by making paths for the other player without mistakenly touching your own color.

It’s a simple premise that mixes well with the abstract artstyle. If you are looking for a co-op title to clear your head, then Deru is a promising candidate.

Battlefield V

The sixteenth installment in the Battlefield franchise released last month with tons of multiplayer modes to enjoy.

There’s combat sandboxes for up to 64 players, with seven multiplayer online modes in total. Most importantly a  brand new cooperative mode called Combined Arms that supports up to four players is included as well. In Combined Arms, there is a unique mission generator that creates objectives and narratives at random. This means there are a seemingly endless line of co-op missions for you and your friends to try. Even if the missions happen on the same map, the story and goals will be completely different.

Battlefield V’s multiplayer modes include:

  • Airborne: Parachute on to the battlefield and to take on an incoming invasion.
  • Breakthrough: Act as a defender as you control vital sectors as an attacker or fortify and push the enemy back.
  • Conquest: Keep your tickets and control the flags in key locations on the map with up to 64 players.
  • Domination: Fight the enemy in close-quarters during fast-paced, infantry-based combat.
  • Final Stand: Only one team can survive as ammo and supplies run lower and lower.
  • Firestorm: A Battle Royale mode where squads attempt to be the last group standing.
  • Frontlines: Fight head-on in a close, symmetrical manner as you try and infiltrate the enemy base.
  • Team Deathmatch: A classic mode where it’s simply kill or be killed.
  • Practice Range: Keep your skills up by practicing online in the practice range.

Battlefield V released for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on Nov. 20.
