SANTA MONICA, Calif.—Nintendo kept the hits and surprises (er, no-longer-surprises) coming during today's E3-affiliated, Switch-crazy Nintendo Direct video special. In addition to major first- and third-party announcements, it also included a long-awaited look at a sequel to one of 2016's biggest indie surprises: Overcooked 2.
Weeks before Nintendo's unveil, the game's handlers at Team 17 invited select members of the press to sit with a largely complete version of the co-op cooking sequel. It didn't take long for my opinion of the gameplay to transform from "why isn't this an expansion pack?" to "awesome bona fide upgrade."A “throw” button!
