The Switch version of Monkey King: Master of the Clouds will be available via the Nintendo eShop today for $4.99, publisher Retroism announced.
The game, a remaster of the Taito arcade game Cloud Master, is also planned for release on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam this summer.

It subsequently appeared on NES, SFC, and the PC Engine. This upgraded release of the original arcade version includes HD ready elements by developer Starfish-SD, the company formed by the original HOT-B development team.
