Players will be able to traverse palaces faster with a new wire-like tool. Akin to a grappling hook, it can also be shot at enemies to ambush them from afar. In the original game, it was only possible to get the drop on foes by sneaking up on them.

Showtime Attacks

Two characters can team up to perform special showtime attacks on enemies. They are mostly comical in nature but deal massive damage when used.

Inflicting Elemental Damage with Guns
