All Old Games Coming to Modern Platforms in June 2018
June 7 sees the return of two old games on the Switch. The Neo Geo motorcycle racing game Riding Hero will be speeding to the system as part of the ACA Neo Geo line. Flashback 25th Anniversary will also be coming to the Switch on that day, and is exclusive to the system. Flashback is a classic cinematic platformer released for the Amiga in 1992. It’s one of those games that has been released on just about every console under the sun, eventually making its way to the SNES, Sega CD, 3DO, CD-i, Atari Jaguar, and even the FM Towns (if you’ve heard of that obscure console). It eventually received a 3D remake for the PS3 and Xbox 360, but this 25th Anniversary edition of Flashback is based on the SNES version.
Lumines Remastered will be coming to the Switch on June 26. It is a puzzle game produced by Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the creator of Rez. Lumines is a block-dropping game similar to Tetris, so it’ll be a perfect fit for the Switch’s handheld mode.
Lastly, releasing on June 29, we have Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. The N. Sane Trilogy collects the first three Crash Bandicoot games from the original PlayStation into a single collection, sporting HD visuals and a bunch of extra features. The Switch port is being handled by Toys for Bob, who are also developing the Spyro Reignited Trilogy for PS4 and Xbox One.
