Doesn't look too impressive does he?
Mario is the actual star of this story, so a little Luma isn't going to be able to do much, right?
The player 2 Luma is probably the most helpful dude ever. As that guy I got to stun most enemies and kill half of them, collect those little star bits, and bring coins/1-ups to Mario. Half of the stuff that's hard due to timing is no longer difficult because this little dude can stop it. None of the videos I can find really show how useful player 2 is, including the trailer. I can stop chomps and the dreaded bullet dudes, and I can kill half of the enemies. If you have a player who knows exactly what you're doing it makes it a lot easier. I essentially provide half of the coins and star bits, on top of killing 75% of the enemies. As I told The Boyfriend, it's like I'm sniping a clear path for him.
If I find a way to show how "broken" this can be with a video, I will. I don't think I will be able to anytime soon but if I do, I'll have to share. It just makes the game so much easier for player 1! And considering I love playing games that involve destroying enemies, this is perfect for me.
Hooray! A two player videogame that actually works!
