I hate when games lock co-op behind beating the game. This was the worst thing about Dragon's Crown too, and they never fixed it in the remaster.

To be fair, DC's multiplayer was really just locked behind completing the first half of the game, and I think it's more understandable there because you also unlock gameplay mechanics over the course of that first half. Trying to mix and match players in online games based on who has what mechanics unlocked would get pretty awkward.

In Pocky & Rocky's case, though, it's definitely a very weird decision to lock multiplayer behind beating story mode. It doesn't really take that long to beat story mode, but it's not what a lot of people who just sit down and open up the game for the first time are going to want to do...

Worth noting that this release (compared to the Asian release) has some censorship for the goddess's artwork. So if you care about that sort of thing, you'll probably want to import it instead.

I really hope they port this game to PC. I've been waiting for it since it's announcement!
