We've extensively covered the Switch's Arcade Archives series over the years, and November 24th marks the 300th week (5 years and 9 months, to be precise) of Hamster Corporation rolling out these updated retro releases.

To celebrate this milestone, the Nintendo Switch eShop is hosting a special sale.

All 20 Nintendo titles from the Arcade Archive series are currently on sale for 30% off.

According to the eShop page, this is the first time the Nintendo titles in Hamster's collection have ever been on sale on the eShop.

@beartown You'll be surprised if I told you Arcade Archives VS.

was a consistent top seller for some time.

It's because there's no other choice if you want them (legally) on Switch.

For a second there, you got me thinking that there was a physical collection on the way with all of the 8/16-bit Nintendo arcade games on a cart.

Feels like a completely different time, the Switch library has come a long way.

And these prices after the discounts are almost 10% of the biggest Switch titles.

Are any of these worth picking up even with the NES versions available.

I haven't played any of the arcade versions, so I don't know if there's a point in getting these when I have a lot of the NES games available through the NES Classic Edition and Wii U/3DS Virtual Console.

I have nothing against these games being sold, but I do think its just weird that in 2022, these arcade versions of games that were mostly ported to NES and thus you could buy for 5 bucks on Virtual Console 15 years ago, are slightly more than 5 bucks even when on sale.

If you can play your games online on the Switch right now, you have the NES versions of most of them anyway.

Pretty sure I had about all of these on cartridge’s at a point in time in life or two….

My wish is that the next system Nintendo puts out it is 100% backwards compatible with downloads and switch game cards.

now days a Nintendo collection should just be a forever pack in?

You likely had the home ports of them on cartridges but the way I played most of these back in the day was on systems where you paid per life or you paid for a period of time to play them.

Ice Climber has a level select screen and with the Arcade Archives suspention points you can "save" your progress

I may use this chance to get the Nintendo Arcade Archives I'm missing

@Mjoen These are the original arcade versions, not NES/SNES ports

These are not NES games, these are arcade games, a few of which were not released on Wii virtual console

And Nintendo wonders why their games get bootlegged..
