NMK’s “Thunder Dragon 2” Now on Nintendo Switch and PS4 via the Arcade Archives
Game publisher Hamster has announced that 2D arcade shoot ‘em up Thunder Dragon 2 is now available on PS4 and Nintendo Switch as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.
Originally released in Japanese arcades by NMK in 1993, this new Arcade Archives release is not only the first home console port of Thunder Dragon 2, but it’s also the first time that Western gamers will get the chance to play the game.
Thunder Dragon 2 is a 2D, vertically scrolling shoot ‘em up where one or two players can take flight in propeller-engine planes and destroy all manner of tanks, helicopters, futuristic vehicles, and of course, enemy planes.
Like other Arcade Archives titles, players can post their high scores to the online leaderboards and change various game settings to match their own personal skill levels and taste. It is also worth noting that this Arcade Archives release was created using the Japanese ROM.
Arcade Archives Thunder Dragon 2 is available today for $7.99 via PSN and the Nintendo Switch eShop.
