Data East’s “Trio the Punch” Now on Nintendo Switch and PS4 via the Arcade Archives

Game publisher Hamster has announced that side-scrolling action game Trio the Punch is now available on PS4 and Nintendo Switch as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.

Originally released in arcades by Data East in 1990, this Arcade Archives release is the first home console port of Trio the Punch (aka Trio the Punch: Never Forget Me…). The game gives players the chance to choose between three different heroes: a Rastan-inspired barbarian, a Bad Dudes-inspired street fighter, and a shuriken-slinging shinobi (a ninja, yo).

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 the Japanese version of the ROM was used for this Arcade Archives release.

Arcade Archives Trio the Punch is available today for $7.99 via PSN and the Nintendo Switch eShop.
