While not quite as famous as Namco’s other arcade games of the ’80s, Sky Kid was still revolutionary in that it was the company’s first game that enabled simultaneous two-player fun.

Now, that original arcade release is hitting the Switch thanks to Hamster’s Arcade Archives, which sets it apart from the previous NES port via Namco Museum Archives Vol. 1.

In the game you’re tasked with taking down a variety of targets with bombs and machine gun fire, all the while performing aerobatic loops to avoid enemy assault.

You’ll be able to grab Arcade Archives Sky Kid starting tomorrow, October 28th.
