To make this release happen, Konami partnered with game developer Digital Eclipse who “expertly adapt these classics for modern gaming systems with [a] set of quality-of-life features including save anytime and rewind, button mapping, and added online play for certain games with local couch play for all titles where [it was] originally intended.” The games will also come with digital guides to “help players fight and sometimes swim through difficult areas.”

This game will release later this year physically and on the Switch eShop for $39.99 USD. You can visit the game’s official website here.
