Hamster's Arcade Archives release on the Nintendo Switch eShop this week is P.O.W. Prisoners of War.

It's a side-scrolling action beat 'em up by SNK that was originally released in arcades in 1988. It followed with a home console release on the NES a year later. This standalone Switch version will be available on the eShop for $7.99 / £6.29 and supports two players.

Below are some screenshots and a description of the game:
