At the end of September, a listing on Nintendo’s website popped up, revealing the all-new team battle game Johnny Turbo’s Arcade: Heavy Burger would be arriving on the Switch eShop in early October. The originally scheduled date for the game’s launch has since passed and there’s no sign of Johnny’s latest title. Flying...
Features iconic Data East games
Flying Tiger Entertainment is trying out something different next week with the Switch eShop release of Johnny Turbo's Arcade: Heavy Burger on 4th October. Instead of another port, this is apparently a new game making use of Data East IP. As described on the American Nintendo website, Heavy Burger is a team battle...
Joe & Mac are back!
The fifth serving of Johnny Turbo's arcade ports is already on the horizon and this one will bring back a couple of very familiar faces to Nintendo owners. The 1991 Data East Caveman Ninja classic marks the debut of the whole Joe & Mac series with this well-received title making its way to pretty much every home format at the...
“No Mr Sly, I expect you to die!”
One year after the Bad Dudes saved the day, President Ronnie stepped down. The newly elected President Bushie might be safe from ninjas but not from the nuclear-armed terrorist group Council for World Domination. A group of CWD baddies intercepted the president's motorcade, kidnapping the leader of the free...
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue President Ronnie?
On March 21st we will be turning the clocks back to 1988, baby. The Data East classic Bad Dudes Vs. DragonNinja is hitting the Switch eShop thirty years after it thrilled arcade goers and entertained countless others via a series of ports. Blade and Striker must fight the army of the...
Isometric RPG-light dungeon crawler on the go
Retro gaming fans rejoice, because next week will see Flying Tiger Entertainment joining Namco, Hamster and Zerodiv in the exclusive club of publishers bringing arcade game content to Nintendo's hybrid system. Gate of Doom (know as Dark Seal outside the United states) was released back in 1990 and along...
It's Turbo time!

Rescue the cave babes to new sounds
It seems like it was only yesterday we were reminiscing about Data East's original cave man ninja duo, and now news of a MSU1 audio enhancement patch by Kurrono Kei has dropped like one of the game's many pterodactyls after a good bashing. The Super Nintendo version of Joe & Mac was released back in 1991, the...
It's a miracle (adventure)!
Sorry fight fans, there's no Neo Geo one-on-one fighting game from SNK next week as Hamster is instead choosing to bring to the Switch eShop the very first game Data East developed for MVS hardware. 1993's Spinmaster (known as Miracle Adventure in Japan) lets you take control of Johnny and Tom in their...
Are you a bad enough dude to read this book?
Alongside the likes of Capcom, Konami and Namco, Data East was one of the quintessential software makers of the '80s arcade scene, but unlike those other firms it perhaps didn't have the pulling power to ensure long-term success. The company has long since been dissolved and its properties sold to the...
