Are YOU a bad enough dude (or chick) to purchase this title? One of the all time classic arcade beat-em-ups is making it's way to the Nintendo Switch this week. The arcade version of Bad Dudes vs. Dragon Ninja (and not the weaker NES Bad Dudes port) is making it's way to the Nintendo e-Shop on March 21st.

Developed by Flying Tiger Entertainment, Inc. the arcade port was originally developed by Data East for the arcades in 1988. No information has been released yet on extra features, if any.

Sonic Mania players shot the trusty blue hedgehog straight up the charts last summer with what was critically hailed as one of the best Sonic titles in years. Designed by longtime fans of the series, it was a huge hit. Now this summer, Sega is doing more with their iconic mascot.

Sonic Mania Plus was announced for a Summer 2018 release and will feature a few new features to the game, including Encore Mode (which will change a few levels and add some special challenges) two new characters (Ray the Flying Squirrel and Mighty the Armadillo, which appeared in the Japan-only arcade title SegaSonic the Hedgehog first appearing in 1993) and most importantly feature a physical release (supposedly including a reversible cover that allows the game to look like a Genesis title) that comes with an art book.

Those that purchased the digital version of Sonic Mania will be able to purchase this upgrade, though no price has been discussed yet. The physical release is said to retail for $29.99. Look for Sonic Mania Plus in the warm summer months to come! Game will be available for Steam, Xbox, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

On the agenda today is 3 streams from all 3 of our Podcasters!

Ray starts things off with lost chapter Hotel Mario!

Nikki then takes over for the oddball in the series Super Mario Bros. 2 (or Super Mario USA). The reworked Doki Doki Panic title was nethertheless a classic chapter in the Mario series!

The fun starts at 4 PM EST!

Our apologies for being a day late but Ray has decided to honor International Women's Day in the best way us retro gamers can, by saving a prince as a strong video game heroine. MS-DOS Classic Jill of the Jungle was another smash for awesome company Epic Megagames!
