A beat 'em up that retells The Karate Kid 1-3 and has 4-player co-op? Yes, please!

The Karate Kid: Street Rumble Is Heading to Consoles and PC in September

It's a big year for the Karate Kid franchise, with the final season of Cobra Kai debuting on July 18 on Netflix and a (probably way less good) film coming to theaters in December. GameMill Entertainment, makers of TMNT Arcade: Wrath of the Mutants, is getting in on the karate action as well. Today, they discreetly announced The Karate Kid: Street Rumble, a beat 'em up based on the first three Karate Kid films. It features 4-player local co-op, and it's coming in September!

It's finally over - or is it!?

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for June 2024

Holy mackerel, what a month! It felt like every publisher and developer on Earth announced a new co-op title, resulting in 235 new entries to our database. Still, looking back at the last four years since our Database Master joined us, June 2024 was actually on par with previous years. His overwhelming feeling of "there's too much stuff!!!!" was just based on the literally hundreds of games he had to wade through in order to find all that co-op goodness. So many showcases happened during Summer Games Fest 2024, and then directly afterwards, Steam Next Fest June 2024 started. It was definitely an insane month for us gamers.

Soon, Switch gamers will get to collect wacky Denpa Men at home or on the go.

The New Denpa Men Coming to Switch in July

Back when the 3DS still had an eShop, it was home to a series of downloadable games called The Denpa Men. That series will soon live on in the form of The New Denpa Men, an upcoming free to play game for Switch. While most of the game will be a single-player RPG, it does promise to have a feature in which 4 online players can team up to catch special Denpa Men.

Climb as high as you can, alone or with friends, but you can't bring any pants.

Pantless Is a Silly 3D Platformer That's Coming to Steam on July 2

Some folks, like me, are variety streamers, playing all kinds of different stuff. Other folks like to play wacky games that are pretty much designed for streaming. Pantless from Pebbles Games is one of those games.  It's a 3D platformer in which pants-free players try to jump and climb as high as they can in an insane world. The free demo has arrived on Steam ahead of the game's July launch, and it supports online multiplayer (which might be co-op).

Geoff Keighley is upon us!

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for May 2024

Another 106 entries were added to our database this month. We now feature over 14,000 (active) co-op games, and this number will certainly continue to climb. That's most likely more than anyone can play in a lifetime, but I'm sure we are all trying our best. So before Geoff Keighley bombards us with another three hours of ads and announcements next week, let's take a quick look back at May.

It's getting hot out there!

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for April 2024

...and another month has gone down the drain. So what happened in April? Well, Toaplan-fans on PC were able to rejoice as Bitwave Games released their final volume of games. Truxton II, Grind Stormer (no co-op), Dogyuunand Twin Hawk can now be enjoyed on modern systems with a handful of quality-of-life improvements. Don't despair, console users! You finally got access to ArcRunner, Cook, Serve Delicious! (yes, the first one), Hammerwatch Anniversary EditionHammerwatch II, and PERISH. Oh, and on PlayStation, you can now feel like a true pirate thanks to Microsoft's Sea of Thieves hitting the platform just yesterday.

Warning: This is not a joke!

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for March 2024

What's up with the gaming industry ? Seems like most of the hyped up releases in the last year hit the streets and got immediately dumped in the "Mixed" (at best) reviews category for everyone to soon forget. We won't name any names, but it is sad to see - especially for co-op titles that depend so much on an active player base.

The follow-up to Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is a Suikoden-style JRPG, and it's almost here.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes - Beyond Co-op Preview

While we do our best around here to play nothing but cooperative games, from time to time, a non-co-op title slips in. Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes from developer Rabbit & Bear Studios and publisher 505 Games is a JRPG that's too exciting to overlook. It was directed and produced by Yoshitaka Murayama, the creator of Suikoden series, who sadly died in February. The game promises to be a spiritual successor to Murayama's beloved series.

Return of the Co-Op

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for Februrary 2024

After a surprisingly quiet January, our release calendar was once again filled with quite a bit of co-op fodder this month. Our team's favourite was by far the democracy-simulator, Helldivers 2. Despite the initial server-issues, we just keep coming back to it time and time again. Also of note, quite a few titles like Sons Of The Forest, Smalland: Survive the Wilds, and Timemelters finally left their Early Access state behind, which is always nice to see. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and Skull and Bones, on the other hand... well, although they also finally hit store shelves, it doesn't seem like the wait was really worth it. Always sad to see - especially for co-op titles.

It's Quiet, Too Quiet!

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for January 2024

January 2024 was a... strange month. We've counted only 20 co-op releases across all platforms. Yes, this time of year is usually a bit more on the lighter side with all publishers and developers preparing the big spring push. But still: This is the lowest amount of new titles we've seen in a January in a long time. Perhaps everyone was just too afraid to launch in the same month as Palworld? A bit less Pokémon with guns and more traditional open-world-survival-crafting as it turns out but still a very huge success with players.

Happy New Year 2024!

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for December 2023

Here it is: 2024. And with it, we're leaving behind 2023: a year that is already considered by many to be the best 365 days for gaming in at least a decade. Granted, not all expected blockbusters hit the mark. This was especially hard on us when the title featured a solid co-op option (Redfall anyone?). But there was way too much good, cooperative stuff released to keep us complaining for too long about these mishaps.

Give your PlayStation 5 the stealth treatment with this affordable replacement cover.

Powerextra Pro PlayStation 5 Faceplate Review

Ask a dozen people, and 11 of them will tell you that the PlayStation 5 is not an attractive console. It's huge, awkward, and looks like a humidifier. One cool feature of the console's design, however, is the changeable cover. Replacing the shell in order to customize the console's appearance is surprisingly easy. One affordable re...
