Hazelight’s co-op adventure It Takes Two made waves in 2021. Not only did the title win the Game of the Year award, it was the reason for one Klage des Publishers Take-Two: The name is so similar that Hazelight is not allowed to make any copyright claims. But there was no change of name.

Also Masahiro Sakurai, the creator of the fighting game Super Smash Bros., which in its crossover ambitions in the video game industry is only surpassed by the Battle Royale Fortnite, got wind of the title. He has probably not played it yet, but he could certainly use the controller. Or to two controllers, more precisely.
