The digital-only release of Namco Museum on the Switch may also be coming to retail. Despite the retro game collection’s original announcement as an eShop-only affair, the game’s page on Nintendo.com shows what appears to be retail box art. The game’s press release doesn’t mention a retail release either, only saying the game is coming to the Switch period.

A long running series beginning on the original PlayStation, the Nintendo Switch is only the latest platform for Namco Museum to come to. This particular collection includes the arcade titles Pac-Man, DigDug, Galaga, Galaga’88, Druaga, SkyKid, Splatterhouse, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, and Tank Force. Unique features to the Switch edition include the ability to play the games in their vertical arcade resolution, various Challenge Modes, and of course the ability to play these games wherever you go.

The collection launches this summer for $29.99 USD, but no exact date has been announced.
