Nine Parchments Coming to Nintendo SwitchJason Love

The Trine developer first announced their new game last August, showing off a lot of magic action that was fairly similar to another co-op title involving wizards and magic. There hasn't been much mention or updates from the studio since then. In fact, this is the first piece of news that we've heard at all after the initial announcement. So while there isn't much else to go on, or even a release date, at least we get to enjoy some nice footage of the game in action.

When we looked at Rogue Stomers last year, we saw a title that had a lot of promise if the developers decided to continue supporting it. While it's been some time since we checked in on things, that's exactly what Black Forest Games has been doing in the past year. After the console version was out the door back in October, much of the development team's efforts seem to have gone into fixing some of the bigger sticking points. One of those was how experience was earned when playing locally; specifically, players other than "player one" couldn't earn experience at all.

The game features local co-op for up to four players, with AI available to fill in any available slots.  The goal of each play session is to survive consecutive nights with your anthropomorphic pals, unlocking weapons and superpowers along the way.  You'll face off against a plethora of classic baddies, like, you know, lunch ladies and Abraham Lincoln.

The big hook to Unit 4, other than the classic pixel platformer look and feel, is that up to four players can team up locally to save the day. Each player can choose one of four different playable characters (Agility, Strength, Engineering, or Mysticism), each of which has their own abilities. Working together you'll face six bosses across 15 different levels in order to win the day (hooray!)

Demon's has been out for some time on PC, but has only just launched on console and this means we get an all new trailer than shows off some of the up to four player local co-op that the game has:

In the main "Free-For-All" mode, players must compete against one another to get the most points possible by linking up matching colored blocks to pull off big combos. Before you get those points, though, you have to wait a few seconds before it locks in. During that time, other players can steal away your combo by linking up new block with it.

The four player co-op game hit PC back in 2015, and to be honest, I wasn't aware of any plans to take it elsewhere, but here we are.  Assuming nothing dramatic has changed in the porting process, it's a twin-stick shooter in which you follow the tale of John Strong as he takes on aliens and a host of other enemies.  Check out the original release trailer to see the game in action.

The central conceit of the game is that you (and up to three of your local co-op buddies) take control over one of four Urican, astral demons that are used to being the "top of the food pyramid." After three mysterious entities arrive and change the world, the demons must fight for survival and recover their precious food source: the crystals. So you'll take 'em all down by utilizing some impressive weaponry, like missile launchers, and whatever power-ups you can nab, like speed boosts and something called "Bullet Time."

Due out in 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, Bloody Zombies looks to up the ante on the "punch zombies to death... again" genre by introducing an added wrinkle - VR.  See, the four player co-op game is also gonna be on the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PlayStation VR, allowing for a bit of combo co-op between those wearing headsets and those on the couch.  It's playable online as well, but no word yet on what restrictions (if any) exist between playstyles.

In fact, today could be that day, if you're a fan of the Geometry Wars sequels.  Both Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 and Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved are now available through the Backwards Compatibility program, adding lots and lots of four player local co-op action to the list.

While the "Ultimate Edition" is currently available on the PC version of the game via Steam, the PlayStation 4 version isn't being left out in the cold. The update should be coming to that platform as well very soon and, just like on PC, it will be free. Meaning if you already own the game you'll get "upgraded" to the Ultimate Edition without having to pay anything extra, and if you don't own it yet, you can just buy the Ultimate Edition when it does become available.
