Co-Op Mode

Domains can be completed in Co-Op Mode. This involves pressing the "Match" button in the Domain entrance screen to invite other players to one's world or join other players' worlds. After that, the host can invite other players in their world to join a Co-Op session to complete the domain or boss fight.

If a player falls in battle within the domain, they can enter spectator mode and will be able to rotate the camera view to see the other players battle in the domain.

Trivia

Domains probably got their inspiration from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a 2017 open-world adventure role-playing game released by Nintendo for their Switch console. In that game, players could enter "Shrines" to complete puzzles and fight monsters in exchange for spirit orbs. Trounce Domains are most similar to Breath of the Wild's "Dungeons" or "Divine Beasts", where puzzles must be solved in order to fight off a spirit of Calamity Ganon.
