For Sackboy: A Big Adventure players who want to player with friends, this guide will explain how to couch co-op, let’s check it out.
First you need to be in a game world, like this
Once you’re in your world and have both controllers turned on (or keyboard + controller, yada yada), you need to press a button to bring up the co-op window.
Xbox Controller: View Button See here, number 3]
Keyboard: = key
PS4 Controller: Share (I think)
The co-op section looks like this
Once you have that up on the controller you want player 2 to use, press the relevant button again to bring up a second popup
With this popup, click the right arrow to go to the second slot, then press A (or X).
Then press A (or X) again.
Another little sackboy will appear out of nowhere.
