Namco Museum Collection Comes to the Nintendo Switch eShop Today

first_imgStay on target The Nintendo Switch is about to get another shot of retro love when the Namco Museum Collection releases tomorrow. This compilation features 11 of Namco’s classic arcade titles that users can play at home or on the go. In anticipation of the release, Namco has released a new trailer that should bring back fond memories for many gamers.For the most part, these are the same games everyone remembers. To make things more interesting, each of the titles in this collection (minus PAC-MAN VS.) will support an online ranking system. This means that you can compare your high scores to those of players from around the world. Think of it as a global arcade of sorts. That right there is a pretty sweet feature.The Namco Museum Collection has been released on many different platforms over the years. Most of them have been identical, but the Switch version allows for something other systems are incapable of. Users can play this game with the Switch turned vertically. This may sound weird, but you have to remember that many of these arcade games were played on screens that were tall and slim. The fact Switch can replicate that unique arcade aspect ratio makes this version a cut above previous iterations.While the Switch is still lacking a Virtual Console store, it still has an impressive number of retro titles. Playing old-school games on a handheld just feels right, so the Namco Museum Collection will be a perfect fit for Nintendo’s console/handheld hybrid. Personally, I want to see what it’s like to play these games with the Switch turned vertically. That should be a pretty sweet experience.The Namco Museum Collection is available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $29.99. You can also get the game for free if you by the WaterField Designs MultiPlayer Pro Switch Case. There is a good deal of Nintendo Switch cases to choose from, but the Waterfield case is definitely a cut above the rest. If you’re in the market for a Switch case, then it’s certainly worth buying.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. ‘Game of Thrones’ Recreated in 300-Foot Embroidered TapestryPop-Up NYC Museum Highlights Burden of Single-Use Plastics last_img
