Parasol Stars: Bubble Bobble III Will Arrive on Consoles on July 11

The Bubble Bobble series utilizes a strange naming and numbering scheme in which there are multiple Bubble Bobble 2s and 3s.

Now, the game is coming to modern consoles as well via ININ, allowing a whole new generation to enjoy its colorful cooperative platforming and umbrella-based attacks.

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!

This stylish sequel to Yar's Revenge is almost here.

Atari Announces Yars: Recharged for August, Sequel to Yar's Revenge

Yar's Revenge is a Atari 2600 shoot 'em up that released in 1982 and is still fondly remembered by gamers of the era. During the Xbox 360 days, Atari released a 3D rail shooter which added co-op but reimagined the insect protagonists as human-like characters. 40 years after the first Yar's Revenge (!!!), the series is due for a comeback with Yars Recharged on modern consoles and PC. This one hews closely to the original, with playable space flies, 2D shooting, and the welcome addition of local co-op.
