By this point in time, HAMSTER’s Arcade Archives line of games must make up about half the Switch eShop. The company has been remarkably consistent in releasing new games on a regular basis, and no doubt helps to tide over retro fans still waiting for a Virtual Console of some sort to arrive on the Switch. Though many of the releases have been relatively niche arcade games, there’s still been plenty of gems, too, and one of the most recognizable names is about to see a release later this week.
HAMSTER has revealed that Arcade Archives Double Dragon will be hitting the Switch eShop on 18th January, for the usual Arcade Archives price. Featuring two-player co-op gameplay, this is a staple of arcades everywhere, and certainly will fit nicely on the Switch with its split Joy-Con capability.
