Mr Nutz Studio has announced from his Facebook page on remake in high definition, with completely redone graphics, by Joe & Mac, Data East’s arcade classic in which you play two cavemen who must save the women of their village kidnapped by a rival tribe.
Joe & Mac is scheduled for 2022, a date yet to be decided. Mr Nutz Studio, to whom we owe the Toki port on Nintendo Switch, is a software house formed by industry veterans, coming from development on 8 and 16 bit systems (Mr Nutz was a very popular platformer of the Amiga era ed).
The only two Images by Joe & Mac released so far show the work done on the visual aspect, modernized with great taste. We will see if the gameplay will remain that of the original or if something has changed. Let’s see the two shots:
Unfortunately Joe & Mac are not yet known platforms launch. We imagine that PC and Nintendo Switch will be there, but it is also likely to come out on Xbox and PlayStation.
