The calm before autumn

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for July, 2021

It was nice to have a bit of breathing room at the start of July after the absolute crazyness that was June. The calm didn't last long however as in the second half of the month the release calender suddenly started to get full again culminating in three days at the end full of long awaited releases like Blightbound, Samurai Warriors 5, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin or The Ascent. It seemed like the industry went on a two-week-vacation and then decided they needed to complete the missed work in a single day.

Adorable Action RPG 'Kitaria Fables' Will Feature Fighting, Farming, and Co-op

After publishing the feline co-op action RPG Cat Quest II, it's only natural that PQUBE would want to bring more action RPGs starring heroic kitties to the world.

The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem Will Get Creepy, Kooky, and Co-Op in September
