Original article [Thu 13th Apr, 2023 10:04 BST]: A collection of PolyGame Master arcade titles are launching today on the Nintendo Switch, but only in Japan for now.
The Japanese eShop listing for the IGS Classic Arcade Collection was spotted by @turfmaster on Twitter (via @GoldWing1992) and contains PGM-exclusive titles. The PolyGame Master is an arcade system board that was created by Taiwanese company IGS to rival SNK’s Neo Geo MVS back in 1997.
The games included in the collection are:
- Knights of Valour: Super Heroes
- Knights of Valour Plus
- Knights of Valour 2 – Nine Dragons
- Oriental Legend
- Oriental Legend Special
- Martial Masters
- Demon Front
- The Gladiator
Looking at the screenshots and the description on the eShop, it looks like all of the games are playable in English, too. All of the games are playable online with up to four people, and there are difficulty options and the ability to retry and reload anywhere.
The collection hasn’t been announced for a release on western eShop storefronts yet, but we’ll keep an eye out and let you know.
