@e_zed_eh_intern Still looking into this, but they've released a new tweet, deconfirming the previously confirmed offline local multiplayer it seems? Going to try to look into this more for exactly what it means, because you should still be able to play with multiple people with Switches in person locally, since that was a big feature of their last presentation.
Well, they've basically confirmed THIS works, but I guess it connects through online?
This tweet confirms you can play Online with either Friends or Strangers:
And this tweet claims they greatly increased the Inventory Limit for the Remaster:
So yeah, it seems they've cut the offline local coop. So there's still online coop with crossplay even and offline single player (with a Moogle companion, although not what I'd recommend), just no offline local multiplayer sharing a screen or not. You can still get together in person with your devices and play together, but it seems that will be functioning through online, so unfortunately it'll come with all the usual drawbacks of playing online versus playing something locally. For sure a bummer, but I planned to play this online anyway. Hell we're in Covid times so who the heck could even play locally if it was available anyways?
