The Stretchers

Nintendo has announced and released two-player cooperative action game The Stretchers for Switch via the Nintendo eShop in Japan for 2,000 yen. It is developed by Tarsier Studios and supports Japanese, English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, and Chinese language options.

Here is an overview of the game, via the Nintendo eShop:

A two-person rescue team must stay in sync to save the islanders!

The Strechers is set on Green Horn Island, where people spent each day in peace until the self-proclaimed genius Captain Blaine suddenly appeared and hypnotized the islanders to become lightheaded, sending the island into major panic!

Players take on the role of a two-person rescue team called “The Stretchers,” and must respond to rescue calls from around the island to rescue the lightheaded islanders.

The game can be played with one Joy-Con, allowing family and friends to play together via two-player co-op. Additionally, a single player can control both of the rescue team members.
