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!

On November 18, a whole new generation will get to face the game's beauty, challenge, and 2-player local co-op.

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!
