90’s Arcade Racer transitions from Wii U to Switch under the name ’90s Super GP
Posted on July 19, 2017 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch, Wii U eShop
First announced for the system in 2013, 90’s Arcade Racer was supposed to eventually end up on Wii U with Nicalis as the game’s publisher. After several years though, nothing materialized, and it has been difficult to obtain an update about the situation.
That brings us to Switch. Wii U is off the table at this point, but Nicalis appears to be bringing 90’s Arcade Racer to Nintendo’s new console instead under the name ’90s Super GP. The project is listed on the company’s revamped website.
’90s Super GP is still without a release date. But since it has a new name and is coming to a new console, hopefully it’s not too far off.
An overview of ’90s Super GP is posted below.
