Taito’s “Don Doku Don” Joins the Arcade Archives on PS4, Nintendo Switch

“Ain’t no trees in Botswana. Nuh-uh. I know. I’m a Botswanian lumberjack and I ain’t never had a job.”

Publisher Hamster has announced that Don Doku Don is now available on Nintendo Switch and PS4 as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.

Originally released in Japanese arcades by Taito in 1989 and later ported to the Nintendo Famicom and the PC-Engine, this is the first time that Don Doku Don is seeing an official release in the West.

One or two players take control of a pair of lumberjacks named Bob and Jim on a mission to rescue the King and his daughter (the Princess). The heroic woodsmen must overcome a series of fixed-screen stages, defeating enemies, collecting power-ups, and overcoming the massive boss battles at the end of each round.

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.

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