Successor Of The Skies can be played in local co-op, although player two takes charge of a targeting reticule only. Given how chaotic the screen can get with just one character, that’s probably for the best, and it’s an entertaini­ng inclusion, especially for unevenly skilled partners. For solo players, there’s also Isa And Kachi Mode, which only unlocks after you’ve completed the game with both characters individual­ly. Now you can instantly switch characters at any point, allowing you to take advantage of their different fire modes to suit each situation, or bench one temporaril­y if their health is getting low. In other words, it adds a touch more tactical depth and makes the game easier – begging the question: why it wasn’t the default singleplay­er experience?
