Dust off those 3D glasses: It’s time to blast zombies, rescue neighbors, and avoid giant demonic babies as two retro classics rise from the grave once again.

A new listing on the Nintendo eShop reveals that the 1993 Lucasfilm classic Zombies Ate My Neighbors, along with its 1994 sequel Ghoul Patrol, will be ported to the Nintendo Switch. Both games will be bundled into a single package and will launch on the eShop on June 29th, 2021.

As with previous versions of these games, two-player local co-op is of course supported. The new ports will also include several extras, including a “Museum” that includes “a video interview with one of the original Zombies’ developers or explore numerous galleries containing game art, previously unreleased concept images and marketing assets.” A new save feature will be integrated so that players can quickly save progress and continue “wherever and whenever you want,” the complete soundtracks for both games are included for players’ listening pleasure, and achievements are included to allow fans to track their progress.

The bundle will have a download size of 252 MB and will support the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Disney Interactive is publishing, and VGC reports that Dotemu is also involved in the release.
