Hamster Bringing IREM Arcade Archive Games To Switch

Hamster has been doing an amazing job with the NEO GEO arcade classic games on the Nintendo Switch. Recently they also partnered with Nintendo to release Mario Bros. and more games in that line are supposed to trickle out soon.

Now, they have signed an agreement to bring out some of IREM’s arcade games. The first one will be Zippy Race. R-Type and Front Line are also on the release schedule for later in the year – at least in Japan. So far they haven’t confirmed these games to release in North America, but we’re hopeful. Worst case scenario you could always download them from the Japanese eShop!
