Long before the current Nindie renaissance, World of Goo and Little Inferno stood as two early and beloved showcases for the fledgling WiiWare and eShop services, respectively, paving the way for other independent studios to find success on Nintendo’s digital stores. The two games will be arriving to Nintendo’s newest console Switch this Thursday (alongside another one of Tomorrow Corporation’s eShop gems, Human Resource Machine), with an added bonus: the Switch versions of both titles will now feature cooperative, local multiplayer support.
While the WiiWare release of World of Goo did allow up to four players to play together locally, it remains the only version of the game to support multiplayer. Little Inferno, meanwhile, was a strictly solo affair on Wii U, so the addition of multiplayer gives those who’ve already experienced the games elsewhere a nice incentive to revisit them on Switch. The feature won’t be available from the get-go, however; according to Tomorrow Corporation, multiplayer will be added to Little Inferno as a free update “about a week” after its release.
