There’s a Swords of Ditto Loco Roco crossover. No, really, there is. No we’re not high! Fork Parker told us! What do you mean, Fork Parker’s not real?
The Swords of Ditto is a Zelda-adjacent co-op action/adventure RPG. It’s also one of the games we’re most excited about for 2018.
Loco Roco is… erm… it’s kind of like… a gelatinous… fluid dynamics… platformer? It’s complicated. But also simple, and brilliant.
Were you wondering what would happen if a Swords of Ditto Loco Roco crossover event was to take place? No, neither were we, but here we are anyway. Ditto developer Jonathan ‘Bidds’ Biddle, the man behind One Bit Beyond, publisher Devolver Digital, and Sony have put their heads together to come up with the following PS4 exclusive crossover content for The Swords of Ditto:

We were going to point out that Devolver were just jumping onto a meme late, as per flipping usual, but they already did it, those clever, self-deprecating bastards. If you see Fork Parker, tell him we hate him.
The Swords of Ditto Loco Roco crossover will “task intrepid adventurers with entering a secret cave and wrangling up all the loose LocoRocos while defending themselves from the classic Moja Troop baddies” and will feature “familiar music, sound effects, and even singing”. If you’ve ever played Loco Roco you’ll know that perhaps having two players – and being able to throw them around, cuccoo style – might actually help. Also, you can belt them with the titular sword if they misbehave.
Also of interest is a pre-order discount: The Swords of Ditto is 20% off right up until its launch on April 24th, 2018.
