Bill & Ted’s Excellent Retro Collection gets surprise release on Switch
Posted on February 17, 2023 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch
You may recall that Bill & Ted’s Excellent Retro Collection was announced for Switch last June. We haven’t heard a peep about it since then, but as it turns out, you can pick it up right now on the eShop. Limited Run Games just dropped it out of nowhere.
The collection includes Bill & Ted’s Excellent Video Game Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Portable Adventure. These games came out in 1991 for the NES and Game Boy respectively.
Here’s some additional information:
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Video Game Adventure
History has been all screwed up and only the San Dimas Duo can set things straight. Awesome responsibility, man. Ride the Power Phone Booth to six different worlds. Galactic, man. Search for famous Historical Dudes through space and time. Most Cosmic.
Talk with the likes of Julius Caesar (he invented Caesar salad) and Napolean (the short, dead dude). Send them back in time or you’ll miss the Wyld Stallyns concert- starring you! Heavy.
Its a bodacious, mind-boggling role-playing adventure. And your only chance to save the world and earn the respect you deserve. No way – yes way!
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Portable Adventure
A world without our most excellent compatriots Bill and Ted? No way! Yes way – if the Grim Reaper and the evil Bill and Ted robots get their way! DeNomolos wants to totally change the future, and the only way to stop this most heinous dude is to travel though the “circuits of time” and collect the stolen time fragments! 10 adventures – 50 quests.
But watch out! Historical dudes like Billy the Kid are tumblin’ with killer tumbleweeds while the Executioner has an axe to grind with you. Napoleon has a “short” temper and even Granny S. Preston Esquire tries to bag you. Most Bogus!
Time is running out… so be excellent to each other and party on dudes!
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Retro Collection is only on the eShop at present (priced at $9.69), but a physical version should be following at some point. We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
