After a slow holiday lull we have a variety of cooperative games coming out in early January. We've got brawling, shooting, dancing, and dogfighting (in space!). There's not much else dropping until February, so get your fill while you can.
Anarchy Reigns (360,PS3) The multiplayer brawler is finally coming West. Featuring massive battle royales, giant team deathmatches, and a Mad Survival mode, fans of the beat'em up and fighting genres should find something to like here. 3 player online co-op
Dance Magic (PSN) It's another dancing game, except this time it's magic! Use the PlayStation Move to get your grove on. It's is also one of the few dancing games I've seen that claims to offer online play. 2 player online co-op
Dawnstar (PC) This little space shooter looks pretty sharp. It features a 20 mission cooperative campaign, customizable ships, and a comic book-style story presentation. 4 player online co-op
Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable (VITA) The classic bug blaster makes its way to the Sony's handheld. It will include all the campy fun of the original, and more! 4 player online co-op
Below you'll find the retail releases for the week, complete with Amazon links. Slim pickens. If we missed anything be sure to let us know in the comments section.
