Arcade Archives

During a live stream today, Hamster announced another round of Arcade Archives games for Switch. Burger Time, Burnin’ Rubber, Trio the Punch, and Darwin 4078 are now confirmed for a release on the eShop.

These are just a few of the games Hamster is preparing. Other titles were previously announced, including Sunset Riders, Gemini Wing, and VS. Wrecking Crew.

Hamster recently warned that there could be changes in the development schedule for Arcade Archives. CERO, Japan’s ratings agency, has temporarily closed due to the coronavirus, so some titles may not be able to receive their proper classifications. We usually receive at least one day’s notice about weekly Arcade Archives releases, but some games may not be announced in advance.

This week’s issue of Famitsu has the early word on the latest Arcade Archives game for Switch. As stated in the magazine, Hamster will release Tube Panic worldwide on April 23.

Tube Panic first debuted in 1984. Nichibutsu’s shoot ’em up adopts a 3D look of sorts and has players taking down enemies in tubular vortex levels.

Pricing for Arcade Archives Tube Panic is set at $7.99 / €6.99 / £6.29.
