Nintendo revealed that their classic arcade games, the Arcade Archives, will be made available to buy on Nintendo Switch, beginning with Mario Bros. on September 27th. Other games shown off were Vs Super Mario Bros., Vs Balloon Fight, Punch-Out!!, Vs Ice Climbers, Vs Pinball, and Vs Clu Clu Land. 2-player local play through Joy-Cons will be included in all multiplayer titles.

HAMSTER CORP., the developer responsible for the Switch’s Neo Geo ports, will be developing the Arcade Archives series.

No word on pricing as of yet, nor whether the company’s definitive arcade games Donkey Kong or its sequels will be part of the series. More games besides the announced ones will be coming as well, Nintendo says.
