Nintendo Is Bringing Mario Bros. And Other Arcade Classics To The Switch

During its Nintendo Direct video yesterday, Nintendo announced that several of its classic arcade titles will be making their way to the Switch.

The first game, Arcade Archives: Mario Bros. will launch on September 27. Future games coming to the service include Vs. Super Mario Bros., Vs. Balloon Fight, Vs. Ice Climbers, Vs. Pinball, Vs. Clu Clu Land, and more.

Nintendo claims these games will include “subtle differences” not found in other versions. Each game can be played using a single Joy-Con and all the visual details from the original arcade versions have been preserved.

It’s not quite the full blown Virtual Console service many of us want (give us those GameCube games, Nintendo!) but it’s a start.
