It’s not every day that you see a new game release for an old console, but it doeshappen from time to time. Though these releases will typically launch on a modern digital storefront simultaneously with the physical cartridge, it’s still a great way to make a new game as retro as it can possibly get. The next new NES game, Germ Squashers, has recently been announced, and best of all, the proceeds will be going to a good cause.
Germ Squashers is an arcade action title that sees one or two players fighting off germs and utilising vaccination-themed power ups to gain an edge. The game will be releasing on NES, SNES, Genesis, iOS, and Android, with all proceeds going towards the Children’s Miracle Network, a non-profit that raises funds for children’s hospitals and medical research. Additionally, a ‘Pittsburgh Retro Gaming Convention’ will be held on the 23rd to promote retro gaming goodness and to raise more funds for the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
What do you think? Will you be picking up one of the versions of this new retro game?
