Arcade Archive Games We Might See on the Nintendo Switch

All, Business & Industry, Gaming, Reviews & Opinions

Nintendo announced that the Arcade Archive system will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on the 27th of this month. However, this will just be the start of the Arcade Archive on the console. This doesn’t mean that all the game will be released then sadly. Despite this, there are a few games we know are coming and a list of games currently available for the PS4 which might be ported to the Switch.

Confirmed games

  • Vs. Balloon Fight
  • Vs. Clu Clu Land
  • Vs. Ice Climber
  • Vs. Pinball
  • Vs. Super Mario Bros

We only know a handful of games right now and while we’re all sure to have our own personal wishlists, it seems likely that Nintendo would port the PS4 Archive games to the Switch as well. So let’s take a look at what’s currently available on the PlayStation 4 across all regions.

While these are all the Arcade Archive games currently available for the PlayStation 4, there’s no guarantee that Nintendo will port these games to the Switch. We do know however that many of the ACA Neo Geo games available for the Switch are on other platforms also. Nintendo also seems to be going for a local co-op trend with their Arcade Archive games selection so we might receive some co-op variations of these games instead.
