The early 90s Konami beat-em-up classic Mystic Warriors is finally getting a home release thanks to the Arcade Archives line of downloadable titles. As reported by Famitsu, the once-arcade exclusive will be hitting Switch and PS4 on December 21st, 2023 (aka today!) Now you and some friends can ninja your way through hordes of enemies in the way only ’90s Konami knew how to deliver.

Created by the same team responsible for Sunset Riders, Mystic Warriors hit Japanese arcades in 1992 before making its way west in 1993. Unlike many of Konami’s other contemporary arcade classics, Mystic Warriors remained locked to the arcades for the last 30 years. Surprisingly, it took this long into the Arcade Archives line (which started in 2014) to finally see the game materialize, but fans can finally own this gem without needing to shell out thousands for a cabinet.

You can currently buy Arcade Archives Mystic Warriors on the Nintendo eShop for $7.99.
