Next week, retro-inspired beat 'em up Jay and Silent Bob: Mall Brawl is getting its very own digital release on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

The game, which is an 8-bit companion brawler to Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch, actually started out as a free digital bonus for backers of that game's crowdfunding campaign. It received a Limited Run physical edition for the NES last year but will soon be available to download on Switch. Here's the official eShop description:

Play as Jay and Silent Bob in a retro 8-bit sidescrolling brawler. Go solo or team up with a friend. Pummel enemies with hard-hitting combos, dash attacks, and elbow drops as well as a random assortment of weapons as you battle your way out of the mall and back to the Quickstop.

You can see it running on Switch in the video below; the clip shows the development team's first console test for the software.

It's launching on Switch on 7th May and will be available for $14.99. Think you might pick this one up? Let us know in the comments.
