Here is an overview of the game, via Microids:
Originally released in the early 90s on Japanese soil as an arcade game, Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja is an arcade game / platformer, playable solo or in cooperation. This new iteration of the game, developed by Mr. Nutz Studio (Toki, Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All!), will invite players to go back to the Prehistoric Age and embody Prehistoric Men, ready to do anything to save the women of their tribe.
More than a remake of the arcade version, Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja will include a handful of new features such as an original adventure mode containing brand new levels!
“It’s a real honor to offer gamers the chance to rediscover these characters that marked their generation,” said Microids CEO Stephane Longeard in a press release. “We have full confidence in Mr. Nutz Studio to bring these little prehistoric men back to life.”
Tosuke Matsuoka, the Data East license producer from G-Mode Corporation, added, “We have full confidence in Microids and Mr. Nutz Studio capability to develop this remake of Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja. It’s a real pleasure to see these iconic video game characters revived with today’s technology. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen these two characters, and their return will delight old fans and new players alike.”
