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.

Nindies Showcase Spring 2019 Recap Post

Nintendo held another of their "Nintendo Directs" yesterday, this time focused on all the independent video games coming to the Switch in the near future. There were a number of new single-player titles they revealed that look interesting, but we're all about the co-op here and one title in particular caught our eye.The full video can be found below and I've included the co-op titles along with timestamps below that.Cadence of Hyrule (24:16) - 2 player couch co-op. This was the biggest surprise, for me, of the whole Direct. Seeing Cadence moving around in a different art style was cool, and once a few particular melodic threads weaved their way into those beats, I got very stoked. Crypt of the Necrodancer was one of my favorite games back in 2015/2016 and this particular twist of that formula looks great. Plus, Zelda no sells a behind the back magic explosion. Sign me up!
