As of yet, Nintendo has yet to announce any plans for the Virtual Console on the Switch, making the chances of it ever appearing narrower by the day. Given that the Classic microconsoles are still in production and there’s a Netflix-like NES game collection that’ll come out with the online service next year, there’s a good chance that Nintendo simply phased out the Virtual Console entirely. Even so, that isn’t stopping some companies from bringing old games to the new system.
Naps Team recently revealed that it’ll be bringing Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge to the Switch “soon”, though it hasn’t specified whether this will be a straight port or a remaster. Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge is a beat ‘em up that saw a release on the Game Boy Advance back in 2002. It’s a bit of a strange arrival to be sure, but we’ll be interested to see if this kickstarts a new wave of retro releases. Or maybe Nintendo will finally get its act together with the Virtual Console?
