Update: Bumped to the top. Arcade Archives Donkey Kong out now in North America; seems to be tomorrow in Europe


Original: Last September, it was announced that Hamster had formed a partnership with Nintendo to bring classic arcade titles to Switch. We’ve seen a few releases since then, including Mario Bros., Vs. Super Mario Bros., and Punch-Out!!.

We now have confirmation about the next title, and it’s coming very soon. According to the Nintendo Download press release issued for Europe today, Arcade Archives Donkey Kong launches on Switch tomorrow.

Sky Skipper is an arcade game from Nintendo that some may be unaware of. The title did come out in Japan a few decades ago, but after performing poorly, never made it to North America in its original form.

Arcade Archives Sky Skipper launches for Switch in July.
