Arc System Works is releasing a new collection of 18 arcade and console classics on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 later this month.

If you like punching things, start pumping your muscles. Arc System Works has announced the upcoming release of the Double Dragon & Kunio-kun Retro Brawler Bundle for Switch and PS4. The collection hits the Nintendo eShop and PlayStation Store on February 20, 2020.

The bundle includes 18 games from the 80s and 90s, many of which are localised in English for the first time. Most widely known are three Double Dragon brawlers and four Kunio-kun games including River City Ransom, Renegade, Crash’n the Boys Street Challenge, and arcade sports game, Super Dodge Ball.

However, this curious collection also includes 11 Kunio-kun ‘classics’ that were previously only ever released in Japan for the Nintendo Family Computer Disk System. They encompass a variety of other genres, including sports and RPGs.

Each game includes local multiplayer, online support, and 55 in-game achievements.
