Recommended Videos


During the September 2017 Nintendo Direct, it was revealed Nintendo arcade games would be joining Hamster’s Arcade Classics line and coming to the Nintendo Switch. Now, we know a few more games that will be appearing on the system. VS. Excitebike, VS. Urban Champion, and VS. Wrecking Crew will also all be part of the lineup. (Thanks, Famitsu!)


VS. Excitebike first appeared in arcades in 1984, while VS. Urban Champion and VS. Wrecking Crew showed up in 1985. Of the three, VS. Excitebike is the only one to appear on a Nintendo platform as a download since its release. It was released on the Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console in 2015.


Arcade Classics: Mario Bros. will be released on the Nintendo Switch on September 27, 2017. Punch Out!!, VS. Balloon Fight, VS. Clu Clu Land, VS. Excitebike, VS. Mario Bros., VS Urban Champion, and VS. Wrecking Crew do not yet have release dates.
