about X hours ago from

The original Castle Crashers came out 11 years ago on the Xbox 360 and immediately established itself as a game with strong personality, fun quirks, and challenging but wonderful co-op gameplay. That original game was followed up with a remaster on Xbox One in 2015 and it is that version that is now arriving on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch sometime this year.Along with this announcement, the official blog post from the developer, The Behemoth, lays out the additional items included in this release:Has this remaster captured your attention, or did the alluring ‘Game 5’ mentioned in the blog capture all of your interest?

New Team Sonic Racing Videos From SXSW

about X hours ago from

At the recent South By Southwest Conference and Festivals (SXSW for short), SEGA had 3 new videos to show off a range of features and goodies for the forthcoming Team Sonic Racing. The first two videos focus on in-game content, including different ways to cosmetically customize your racing vehicle and some deeply catchy remixes. The final video is a bit different as it is the first episode of  “Team Sonic Racing: Overdrive,” an animated series set in the same context as the game.While details have yet to emerge on the next entry in the Sonic franchise, it’s great to see SEGA continuing to have fun with the Blue Blur and his many companions. Go ahead and check out the videos below while I ponder my longtime question of why the fastest hedgehog alive has to use a car to race...Will you be grabbing this entry into the world of crazy racing games, or have Crash and Mario kept all of your cartoonish racing needs satisfied? Let us know in the comments below!

Wondering what kind of mischief and mayhem you and your buddy will be getting into this summer? The folks at KillHouse Games may have an answer; why not bust down doors while also busting criminals? Door Kickers: Action Squad is headed to the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One sometime over the summer.Door Kickers: Action Squad is the more action-oriented follow-up to the 2014 tactical hit, Door Kickers (online co-op was added to it a couple years ago). We've had our fair share of fun with it from Early Access to full release, and it's great to see this title headed to the consoles where it can find some new life. What's more, there will be some new content added to the console (and PC) versions, including new stages and a "Zombie Invasion" mission.No specific release date has been provided for when it'll be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch, but there should be more details soon. Two player couch co-op or two player online co-op will be supported for the console versions.

Get Punchy With The New Streets Of Rage 4 Trailer

about X hours ago from

There have been plenty of new beat-em-ups over the years, and some of them have been quite good.  Let's be real, though.  Nothing beats the originals (or at least our collective nostalgia for them).Streets of Rage 4, the latest in the classic side-scrolling franchise, is here to prove just that.  Assuming the game hits the planned 2019 release window, it'll be the first entry in 25 years.  That's obviously a lot of time between releases, but let's hope the game lives up to whatever memories have coalesced in our brains since 1994.  At the very least, this latest gameplay trailer should give us a solid hint as to what the game's all about (hint:  it's still punching and kicking bad dudes).Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games are handling development this time around, with DotEmu and Sega taking on the publishing role.  The game's two player local co-op focuses on Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding as they deliver non-stop punishment to presumably deserving scumbags.

Three Collections of Classic Konami Titles On The Way

To celebrate their 50 years of making video entertainment - first with "amusement machines" in video arcades and later some of our favorite titles on consoles - Konami is releasing three different bundles featuring a selection of games from all those years. Each will be heading to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One (digital downloads only) over the course of the next 6 months. The first one, Konami Anniversary Collection: Arcade Classics, arrives April 18.The Konami Anniversary Collection: Arcade Classics includes 8 arcade titles from the 80s, when arcades were king. Here are all the games that are in that collection (co-op titles are in bold):Along with those games, you'll get a "Bonus eBook" that includes "interviews with the development staff, behind-the-scenes insights, and sketches and design documents." It's worth noting that there's a little note at the bottom of the Arcade Classics page that states "Powered by Arcade Archives," which is the moniker used by Hamster Corporation for the emulated arcade games you see pop up on various digital storefronts every other week.
