The Humans, a puzzler platformer from the early 90s, will soon be making a comeback on Switch. QUByte Interactive and Piko Interactive are partnering on the new release.

The Humans for Switch will include three versions of the game. It will also include a save system, filter selection, and new interface.

Here’s some additional information about The Humans:

Thanks to QUByte Interactive and Piko Interactive, the 1987 action adventure game Head over Heels is now available on Switch. The game can be purchase digitally on the console.

Head over Heels was originally created by Ocean Software. It initially debuted on 8-bit home computers before landing on other platforms.

Here’s an overview of the game:

The Immortal, which was previously made available on Switch through the Nintendo Switch Online service’s NES app, has now received a proper release on the eShop.

The Immortal was developed by Will Harvey and published by EA in 1990. It was originally made for the Apple IIGS, but later ended up on other formats like the NES.

QUByte Interactive and Piko Interactive are bringing back the Neo Geo fighter Rage of the Dragons, the two sides announced today. There’s no word on a release window at present.

Rage of the Dragons was originally made in 2002 by Evoga and Noise Factory. Playmore published the title. In May 2020, Piko Interactive announced that it had acquired the rights to the IP.

Here’s an overview of the game:

Back in 1998, Psygnosis and FDI released the action-adventure game O.D.T.: Escape or Die Trying. It was also planned for the N64 at one point, but that version never materialized.

More than two decades later, Piko Interactive has announced that it has acquired the rights to O.D.T.: Escape or Die Trying. Interestingly, that also includes the unreleased N64 version.

Piko hasn’t said what exactly it intends to do with the game moving forward. However, restoring the N64 version is certainly one possibility. Last year, the company restored the N64 edition of 40 Winks, a platformer which was cancelled at the last minute for Nintendo’s old console in 1999.
