There aren’t a huge amount of winter-sports themed titles on the Switch as of right now. But, one more is being added to this slowly-growing list: Alpine Ski.
Being ported by Hamster, Alpine Ski is a very retro 8-bit title that was originally released on arcade systems all the way back in 1981. Hence the reason why it is a part of the regularly updated “Arcade Archives” collection of retro games on the eShop.
The game is set to shred onto the eShop at the end of this week—May 30, 2019. All of the other Arcade Archive titles cost $8, so this will probably be the same amount.
