We'll have to wait a little longer for one of the year's most anticipated beat 'em ups.

River City Girls 2 Arrives in Japan Dec. 1, North American Release Still Coming in 2022

If you asked about my two most anticipated co-op games of the year, I'd answer with Warhammer 40,000: Darktide and River City Girls 2. The PC version of Darktide launches this week, thankfully, but things are slightly more complicated for the Misako and Kyoko, the tough girls from River City. WayForward has confirmed that the Japanese and Asian versions of River City Girls 2 will launch on December 1, but the North American release is due later in 2022. That's cutting it close!

Form a party of 3 and deal with supernatural threats and slow gameplay.

Holy Purge is a Very Indie Cooperative Horror Game

We like to support indie games around here. There are different levels of "indie," of course. Some games are more indie than others. Holy Purge, a co-op horror game for Steam from Celeritas Games, is as indie as it gets. Three online or LAN players can team up to exorcise demons or something in two different maps. Holy Purge is super janky, but also kind of spooky. Gamers of the right temperament might have a creepy good time purgin' with friends.

Is Pid more mighty or delighty? Find out when the classic returns on Nintendo's console.

Beautiful Platformer 'Pid' Is Beaming Onto Switch on November 18

Long ago, the studio that developed the incredible Bionic Commando: Rearmed broke up. Some of the remaining staff formed Might & Delight, which would go on to release games like Book of Travels and the Shelter series. Might & Delight's first game, though, was an ultra-hard platformer called Pid. Ten years later, Pid is about to find a new life on Nintendo Switch. On November 18, a whole new generation will get to face the game's beauty, challenge, and 2-player local co-op.

Get your bats ready for this cult classic beat 'em up starring baseball ninjas!

'Ninja Baseball Bat Man' Will Get Its First Ever Home Release on iiRcade

One of the coolest things about iiRcade, the home arcade cabinet/console, is that it lets gamers purchase classic arcade games that have never gotten home releases before. We've seen it before with the stellar Warrior Blade: Rastan Saga Episode III and the less-amazing-but-still-charming Ninja Clowns, and we're about to see it again with Ninja Baseball Bat Man. Originally released by Irem in 1993, Ninja Baseball Bat Man is one of the rarest arcade games in the world, and it's coming soon to iiRcade.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 gets Free 'Trail of Treachery' Level on PC

It's only a few short weeks until the release of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, but its predecessor, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is still going strong. Fatshark just gave out the Steam version for free, and now the same version has received a new free level. "Trail of Treachery" is set on a snowy mountain. It's a fun and challenging new level that adds even more to an already great cooperative experience.

TMNT: Shredder's Revenge Finally Supports Combo Co-op on PlayStation

When the highly anticipated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge launched in June, it boasted an impressive array of local and online co-op features. The Xbox, Switch, and PC versions allowed local and online players to join the same game, a feature we call combo co-op. PlayStation, however, did not support this feature. That finally changes with the latest update, which enables combo co-op in PlayStation. What's more, all versions of Shredder's Revenge just got a party code system to facilitate cross-platform co-op!

Not only can you grab Vermintide 2 for free, but the game also just got another free update.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is Free to Keep on Steam This Weekend

Fatshark is almost ready to unleash Warhammer 40,000: Darktide on the game-playing masses on November 30. Most players' hearts will not be able to take that game's brutal first-person cooperative action, so the developer is helping people build up their tolerance by giving them Darktide's spiritual predecessor, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, first. That's right, the Steam version of Vermintide 2 is totally free to keep if you grab it between now and November 7. It might even save your life!

From balancing to the game's original fantasy designs

Developer Interview on The First Descendant

The first open beta for Nexon's The First Descendant wrapped up last week to mixed results. While there is definite potential there, it's largely going to depend upon how the game gets supported and how the time-investment/reward structure for players shakes out. We were fortunate to get some questions answered by Lee Beom-jun, Producer and Head of Magnum Studio (the development team within Nexon that's working on The First Descendant), and while it may not lay all concerns to rest, I appreciate how committed and enthusiastic he sounds about the title.

Bustin' makes me feel alright

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed Impressions

Illfonic's latest 4v1 multiplayer game, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, arrived last week to scratch that certain itch you've been feeling for a while now. You know the one; you strap on a Proton Pack, pull out your PKE Meter, crank the Ray Parker Jr tunes, and destroy just a few chandeliers while trapping a class-five full-roaming vapor.
