Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! developer Mr Nutz Studio and publisher Microids have announced that they are remaking the classic Super Nintendo game Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja for both consoles and PC. The remake won’t just include the arcade original as the developers have announced that they plan to add new features and options to the game such as an original Adventure Mode complete with brand new stages. Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja is available now as part of the Nintendo Switch Online membership.

Originally released in the early 90’s on Japanese soil as an arcade game, Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja is an arcade/platformer, playable solo or in cooperation. This new iteration of the game, developed by Mr. Nutz Studio (Toki, Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All!), will invite players to go back to the Prehistoric Age and embody Prehistoric Men, ready to do anything to save the women of their tribe.

“It’s a real honor to offer gamers the chance to rediscover these characters that marked their generation. We have full confidence in Mr. Nutz Studio to bring these little prehistoric men back to life” 

Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Microids.

“We have full confidence in Microids and Mr. Nutz Studio capability to develop this remake of Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja. It’s a real pleasure to see these iconic video game characters revived with today’s technology. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen these two characters, and their return will delight old fans and new players alike.”

    When I first heard about this, it made my day/night. It’s been FAR too long since Joe & Mac has been seen or heard. I always loved the Super NES games. It would be double awesome if the arcade game “Joe & Mac Returns” also released (in physical form). Or was somehow another unlockable (and not just DLC).
