Valentine’s Day is the one day out of the year that you really show the special person in your life just how much they mean to you. After dinner when the cards, candies and flowers have been exchanged, instead of a movie, why not surprise your Valentine with a night of cooperative fun video games. Create some special moments together that you won’t soon forget with these fun cooperative games on Valentine’s Day.

Explore the Kanto region with your Valentine in Pokémon: Let’s Go

Pokémon Let’s Go mixes classic Pokémon with modern Pokémon GO gameplay mechanics that makes it fun for everyone to enjoy. What makes this game a great co-op game for a fun Valentine’s Day is that the enemies don’t double or become harder with a second player. In fact, you double team opponents and take them out with ease.

Just by shaking a second Joy-Con controller, you and your Valentine can team up and explore the Kanto region. While there, you can face off against other trainers and catch Pokémon together. By the time the night is over, you and your Valentine will be coordinating moves together and catching more Pokémon than you can shake a stick at.

You can’t go wrong with either of these games on Valentine’s Day.
