Arcade Archives GOLF hits Nintendo Switch today

The Nintendo Switch's roster of games gets a little bit better with the release of Arcade Archives GOLF, one of the best early golf games available to gamers.


Originally released by Nintendo in 1984, GOLF is one of the earliest iterations of golfing that we’ve seen in video games. Now, Nintendo and Hamster Co. are looking to bring back the fun by bringing the game to the Nintendo Switch via Arcade Archives, a downloadable series of games by Hamster that aims to bring the classics back to Nintendo’s flagship console.

Available for just $7.99, players can pick up Arcade Archives GOLF starting today on the Nintendo Switch. In it, players will need to pay close attention to the direction and speed of the wind, while also making sure to choose the best club in their trek to get the lowest score across 18 holes. It’s a classic arcade experience, which joins the likes of The Ninja Warriors, Donkey Kong 3, and others in the list.
