Switch is becoming a fantastic Arcade machine! (Gunbarich, Strikers 1945 and Aero Fighters 2 videos)

We already had the weekly Arcade Archive NeoGeo, beign the last one the quite excellent Aero Fighters II, last week we got Namco Museum a compilation of 10 arcade games (+ a GameCube 1, Pacman vs) like Rolling Thunder 1 and 2, Pacman, Splatterhouse, Tower of Druaga… and now this week, out of nowhere we have 2 psikyo games, Gunbarich and Strikers 1945 thanks to Zerodiv which have already said we will be releasing more arcade games. I hope that sooner than later we see such more Arcade clasics like Bubble Bobble, Rastan, Outrun, Final Fight…

Out of these games i think that Gunbarich needs a special mention for how weird it is, the game is a mix of Arkanoid (you have to destroy all the bricks in the screen) and pinball. The game itself is the old one, nothing touched but the cutscenes has been redone and the credits limited… kind of like in Namco Museum, that has added HD Rumble and translated texts (over the old ones, like subtitles) to the old ROMS. The game also allow you to rotate the screen and have a filter to mimic the old tube screens, but it’s really weird how it looks ^_^u

You can rotate the screen, perfect fot the Switch!

This is how you usually play, it’s a bit small…

Yep, the filter is really weird…

… and in motion is even weirder!

And since we are already at this, here we have Aero Fighters 2. One of the most interesting features of this game is that it has quite a few characters/ships and no matter how you mix them (in 2p mode) they have an exclusive ending (and each character by their own, of course).

And Strikers 1945

niconico for Nintendo Switch

After beign released for Wii U and 3DS, the video service niconico has been released for Nintendo Switch (just in Japan for now). Niconico is a popular video service somewhat similar to youtube which main feature is that you any viewer can send messages that get printed over the screen…. ^_^u…

Nintendo and niconico are quite related since a few years ago that Nintendo bought a bunch of niconico shares, so, our Nintendo Account actually works like a niconico account!

Showing the Ultra Street Fighter II (Switch) DLC (only for Japan)

I don’t think this very well known but Ultra Street Fighter II has DLC, a new song for the game. This new song only sound if Ryu and Ken fight against M. Bison (and the music player! ^_^u), recreating a certain famous scene of the Street Fighter II anime movie, actually this song is a new version sung by May’n (Sheryl Nome of Macross F)… that you might or might not have heard before, because all the BGMs of the movie were butchered  in certain countries -_-…
