How Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom Co-op Works

0

Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom will allow you to play in offline co-op in order to revive your farm and explore the mysterious planet of Illuma in multiplayer. This guide will teach you how to unlock the offline co-op mode, as well as go over what it entails. When playing with a friend, the 1P will be Noby and the 2P will be Doraemon.

You can unlock offline co-op mode on the second day of Spring. Soon after the game grants you the freedom to explore Illuma yourself, Doraemon will show you the Cordless Cordphone. This is a gadget used in both the Doraemon show and movies. You can find it at the back of the dining room on the first floor of the house. When you interact with the phone, you can access offline co-op mode in Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom.

In offline co-op mode, 1P and 2P share the same stamina bar. This is likely to prevent players from cheesing the more strenuous activities around the farm. Breaking boulders and cutting down trees eat up a lot of stamina, after all. You do not have to share tools though, so both Noby and Doraemon can work on the same task simultaneously. A caveat in the offline co-op is that the game does not offer a split screen perspective. Both players have to exist within the same screen. And since the game will prioritize Noby (1P), the player two will have to go where player one wants to go.

When I played this in offline co-op with my roommate, she took 1P (Noby), because she was sitting on Noby’s side of the screen. That left me at her mercy in terms of what we did for the day. Several times I found myself charging fruitlessly into the side of the screen while she explored Illuma or chatted with the townspeople. In houses, the game will actually block Doraemon from view if Noby is upstairs while Doraemon is downstairs.

Mining, farming, and fishing are the best ways to use the offline Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom co-op. However, since both players share a stamina bar, offline co-op means that each player will not be able to mine or farm or fish as much as someone playing in single-player mode.

To exit offline co-op mode in Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom, you simply need to interact with the Cordless Cordphone again. Or, if you are far away from the house, you can talk to Doraemon and return to single-player mode from there.

Around the second week of Spring, you can unlock the Buddy mechanic. This will allow players who primarily play by themselves to have a helper as they go about their tasks for the day. The Buddy mechanic will let you choose between other characters, such as Sneech or Lumis. But since they are NPCs, it’s much more efficient to play with a friend.

Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom is available for the PS5, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC.
