The 7v7 arcade sports title will get an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release on Friday, January 19, 2018. Much like the PC version, four player local co-op will be supported in the Arcade, Season, and Playoff modes. Each player will play together on the same team against a team controlled by the A.I. One player will be the quarterback and call the plays while the remaining players will each assume a different position on the team, such as running back, safety, wide receiver, or center guard.

The Escapists 2 Is On Its Way To The Nintendo SwitchEnoch Starnes

This difficulty is probably what's made The Escapists 2 such a success for Team 17 and Mouldy Toof Studios.  It's doing so well, in fact, that they're bringing it to everyone's favorite portable/home console hybrid, the Nintendo Switch.  Once January 11th rolls around, every would-be escapee and their mother can take a swing at breaking out of prison life.

The announcement from the developer can be read in full here but the best parts highlight that the game will feature a “True Co-Op experience” with 4-player Co-Op. For the game itself, the team at Cellar Door Games took inspiration from classic beat ‘em ups and hopes to follow suit much like Castle Crashers before it. We here at Co-Optimus always love the sound of Castle Crashers-esque Co-Op, so this is fantastic news.

Epic Loon is set from the perspective of a person watching movies, while the player controls aliens who have invaded the movies as their actions change the film. There are four playable characters (Cap, Gro, Tri and Bou) but unfortunately we only catch a brief glimpse of them in the interview video below. Macrales Studio YouTube channel features both the videos below, where highlights from the former come in the form of the game’s platforms being revealed (PC, X1, PS4, and, if possible, Switch) and the estimated release date (2018 with console ports to follow before Q2 of 2018).

While there may be some shared ideology between the two titles, there's a definite gulf of difference between Nine Parchments and Magicka. The latter was more focused on having players memorize certain key/button combinations in order to make use of their spells and really leaned hard into the chaos that comes with friendly-fire. Nine Parchments, on the other hand, feels more like a twin-stick action RPG. There are a ton of unlockables in the form of purely cosmetic hats and game-affecting staves, and each of the nine playable characters (all but two have to be unlocked) offers something a little different.

The announcement arrives as Sony's PlayStation Experience looms ever closer on the horizon (it starts this Saturday, December 9). Dragon's Crown Pro will come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro with a number of visual enhancements/improvements, including the ability to display at 4k resolution assuming you have a PS4 Pro and a 4k compatible TV. There's also a newly recorded soundtrack featuring a full orchestra, and the same four player co-op options (i.e., local, online, and combo) will still be supported. Best of all, if you owned the original Dragon's Crown and sent those saves to the great PS Cloud in the sky, you can pull that save back down and use with the Pro version of the game.

The first video highlights some of the non-brawler aspects to the game, like using your brains to discover the mysteries lurking within the world.

Character skill trees are tuned to the strengths of a particular wizard. For instance, if you're playing Carabel the Glacial, your skill trees will focus around ice spells. The Mechanical Owl enjoys lightning/electricity so much of his tree enhances those spells. While the skill trees may boost certain aspects/attributes of a wizard, all of the wizards will have access to a wide-range of spells across the six different element types (fire, ice, lightning, steam, life, and death). Also, much like Magicka, players can combine spells to create new spells/effects.

The core "hook" to Circuit Breakers is that all the weapons have unlimited ammo, however, shooting also uses up special crystals (dropped by enemies) that upgrade your gun. This "tug of war" mechanic means you shouldn't just "spray and pray" and adds an interesting strategic element to the usual twin-stick shooter gameplay.

As a result, they've decided that the game's Story Quests and Infinite Dungeons will grant double experience points for... well, forever.  It's an interesting decision, and possibly the only "infinite" limited-time event, but hey, if it makes the community happy, then who am I to judge?

 Nioh: Complete Edition (PC) - supports up to two players online throughout the main missions, and up to three players online in the special "Abyss" mode. Team Ninja's excursion into the realm of a "Dark Souls-like" is absolutely fantastic. While fans of Dark Souls might miss the interconnected world/exploration attributes of that series, the set mission structure of Nioh provides a better way to hop in and out at your own pace. While the co-op play can be a bit a confusing (one player has to complete the specific mission their buddy is attempting before they are allowed to their game), there's a lot of fun to be had. The Complete Edition includes all DLC released for the game.

To maintain his lifestyle, Octodad must continue to blend into human society. Understandably (being an octopus), this is a struggle. The co-op mode tasks up to four players with controlling Octodad's tentacles. You can learn more about how that works in practice in our Co-op Review, but it seems to me that the Switch may offer a stronger implementation of this goofy form of co-op than the game's other platforms.
