ConnecTank Will Connect to Consoles and PC in September

Natsume, best known for its Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons series, has also started publishing indie games over the last couple of years. The latest such game is ConecTank from mysterious developer YummyYummyTummy. While the title brings to mind a combat-focused game, ConecTank is actually a co-op puzzle game about giant tank battles.

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

The Addams Family, a pretty good 2019 animated film, is due for a sequel this October. The 1990s live-action movies enjoyed some odd video game adaptations, so why shouldn't the new movies as well? That's where The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem from PHL Collective and Outright Games comes in. Heading to consoles and Steam on September 24, Mansion Mayhem will be the first Addams Family game to feature local co-op.

'Coridden' Steam Demo Lets Players Become the Monsters They Defeat

There are lots of Diablo-looking action RPGs in the world today, so how do you make your new game stand out? Local co-op is a good step, but co-op's no rarity either. What if the players could turn from guys into animals and ride each other around, though? Now we're talking! That's Coridden, an upcoming Steam game from Aftnareld, which is totally the name of a company, so don't even ask. The game won't be out until next year, but you can try the demo right now.

Streets of Rage 4's 'Mr. X Nightmare' DLC AND a Free Update Are Here

Streets of Rage 4 is a fantastic revival of Sega's classic beat 'em up series, with gorgeous hand-drawn artwork, a memorable soundtrack, challenging gameplay, and both local and online co-op. The only less than stellar thing about the game has been the long wait for new post-release content. Today, Streets of Rage 4 fans can finally take on new challenges as both a free update and the premium 'Mr. X Nightmare' DLC have arrived on consoles and PC.

This local co-op puzzle game of managing the traffic signals at busy intersections first launched on Switch, but it's finally coming to other platforms this year.
