The Nintendo Switch is going to get a pair of new Lucasfilm games from Disney. Or rather, some old ones that are getting some new releases.
Disney officially announces that they will bring a pair of SNES-era Lucasfilm games to the Nintendo Switch. As you can see above, the games in question are the little-known Zombies Ate My Neighbors and its even more little-known sequel Ghoul Patrol. Both games are 16-bit run-and-gun style games where you must save your town from a horde of zombies and other monsters. While neither games sold particularly well, they did get critical acclaim for their graphics, humor, and surprisingly deep and complex gameplay.
Disney plans to release both Zombies Ate My Neighbors and Ghoul Patrol as a digital bundle pack. The bundle pack will be available on the Nintendo eShop on June 29, 2021. However, you can preorder now for $14.99 if you’re interested. Considering their reputation and its low price, it sounds like it’s well worth your money.
Zombies Ate My Neighbors: But They’re Not Eating My Money
Disney isn’t just doing a straight up re-release of Zombies Ate My Neighbors and Ghoul Patrol either. They’ve added in some sweet new features to boot. These new features include the ability to save anywhere at any time, a museum feature containing interviews with the original developers of Zombies Ate My Neighbors, game art, unreleased concept art, marketing images, and more; soundtracks for both games, and even achievements. It’s not quite on the level of a remake. It’s more like a quality of life improvement for both games. These new features should be welcome surprises for veterans of the old games, and welcome features for new players too.
