It's our first time playing Gang Beasts and we are stuck at this screen.
It's the Nintendo Switch version of the game. The game is officially listed as supporting multiplayer of 1-4 players on a single system.
But there appears to be no way for the other three players to join.
We confirmed that all four Joy-Cons are paired.
We tried all the common methods of joining a multiplayer game with detached Joy-Cons:
- Pressing and holding
- Shaking the Joy-Con
We have tried this both from the menu, and after starting with a single player.
We have tried various modes...but no luck.
We just want to do a local couch multiplayer battle. What do we do?
Everyone was stoked to play this game, but now it's total buzzkill.
I got it working by pressing the "accept" button on the non-P1 controllers. But I don't know why this didn't work before. I don't really have enough info to post a complete answer yet. In the meantime, someone else feel free.
