Boldy go where no kid has gone before, either alone or with a friend.

Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova Beams Sci-Fi Co-op onto Consoles and PC

Star Trek has experienced a resurgence lately thanks to an arsenal of new shows on the Paramount Plus streaming service. Strange New Worlds and Lower Decks are the clear cream of the crop, but the animated Prodigy show stands out as the first Star Trek series aimed at kids in many years. Now kids and other fans can experience the show in a whole new way, as Outright Games and Spanish developer Tessera Studios have released Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova on consoles and PC. The game features 2-player local co-op, so aspiring captains can bring along a first officer to share in the fun.

Toki, Blood Bros, Cabal, and Heated Barrel journey from the arcade to your home arcade!

Cabal and Other Co-op Classics from TAD Corporation Heading to iiRcade

It has been a while since we shared iiRcade news, but that's mostly because there haven't been many new co-op releases for iiRcade lately. That will change soon, thankfully! Starting with last Friday's release of Toki (a cool single-player run-and-gun platformer starring an ape), iiRcade will release a total of four arcade games from TAD Corporation, a Japanese game developer. The next three releases include Blood Bros, Cabal, and Heated Barrel, all shooters which feature 2-player local co-op!

Scarlet Moon Halloween Album Features Songs from DOOM and Other Spooky Classics

October is the spookiest month of the year, so creepy music is certainly in order. To celebrate the season, Scarlet Moon Productions has released Scarlet Moon Halloween Volume I on digital storefronts. The album features a total of seven tracks from DOOM, Metroid, Castlevania, and other scary and/or gothic games. It's a festive and catchy album, to be sure.

River City Girls Zero Co-op Review

The River City/Kunio series has seen numerous installments over the years, but precious few of them received English releases until a few years ago. Once Arc System Works took over the license from the defunct Technos, more games starring Kunio and his buddy Riki started making their way out of Japan. WayForward’s release of River City Girls ...

Upcoming physical editions will also mark the first English release of the PlayStation version

Strictly Limited Announces 'Snow Battle Princess Sayuki' for PlayStation and Switch

Earlier this year, Pocky & Rocky Reshrined arrived on consoles to great acclaim. We loved the game's story and artistry, but found the controls led to unnecessary challenge. Gamers might just have a similar experience when Strictly Limited Games publishes physical editions of Snow Battle Princess Sayuki on PlayStation and Switch. SBPS, which was originally intended to be a Pocky & Rocky sequel, has already been released in English on Switch, but the physical edition will be the first English release of the PlayStation version. Both versions will feature 2-player local co-op.

Co-Op Roundup - September 2022 Nintendo Direct

Ah, fall (in the Northern Hemisphere)... the weather starts to cool, the leaves begin to change, and the holiday video game releases loom on the horizon. While the start of summer typically marks developers and publishers hyping up the gaming community with big announcements for what's to come in a year (or two or three) via digital presentations and "Keigh3," the fall is when we usually get teasers of more immediate releases. For example, the September Nintendo Direct dropped yesterday and not only did it finally give a full name and release date for the next Zelda game (The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, May 12, 2023), but there are four new co-op games, two remastered co-op games, and one existing co-op title that are coming to the Switch within the next 6 months.
