Online Party allows for online functionality for A Hat in Time, displaying other players in areas such as The Spaceship and even within levels. For greater effect, the option to limit online availability to a group of friends allows players to play levels for a top position and unlock new achievements, with up to 50 players able to play in a single group at a time and four players to play a level alongside each other.
Alongside online functionality, players are able to communicate by pressing the F key, showing a new wheel of communication options. There are nine default communication options, alongside three customizable options gained by equipping stickers:

Nyakuza Metro + Online Party adds many new customization options, such as new flairs, dyes, badges, camera filters and introduced new outfits for Hat Kid to wear, most of which can be purchased from various gang vendors found within the metro. Even Stickers can be used to customize both Hat Kid's weapon, as well as add up to three communication options with varying voice lines. Alongside normal customization options, this DLC also adds in the option to change between the default Umbrella and a purchasable Baseball Bat. They are both functionally identical, being purely cosmetic.
Three new badges were introduced, a Gameboy filter, a Virtual Boy filter, and the Peace and Tranquility effect whenever the player is dancing with the umbrella or posing with the baseball bat.
