Volley Pals Will Bring Cartoony, Co-op Volleyball to Consoles and PC This Quarter

Sports games are competitive in nature, but that doesn't mean they can't be cooperative as well.

That's how you do it, folks! Preorders for the Xbox version of Volley Pals opened up this week, and Switch preorders are soon to follow.

While today's Shredder's Revenge update isn't as earth-shattering as the one The Cowabunga Collection just got, it does add a cool Custom Game feature that will make Arcade mode a lot more fun, plus some video filters for people who want the game to look less pristine.

River City Girls 2 Out Now on All Platforms and Features Online Cross-Play Co-op!
