Namco’s Beat ’em Up parody by ultramanWonder Momo, is the next game coming to Switch according to Arcade Archives @ohfivepro on twitter.

First released in Japanese arcades in 1987, at a time when female protagonists were uncommon, Wonder Momo received a faithful PC engine port two years later. In the game, a young girl plays the character of “Momo”, a schoolgirl who gains superpowers, in a stage play. She becomes Wonder Momo when she builds up her Wonder Meter with kicks and can transform into the titular hero by spinning around.

We haven’t seen much of Wonder Momo since then, although she did get her own internet comic and anime miniseries in 2012 and 2014, respectively. A direct sequel in 1993 was cancelled, and WayForward launched an Android and Mac game in 2014, which was delisted a year later.

Some fans may remember a few small cameos in a few Bandai Namco RPGs; She appears as a Magnus card in Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean (which requires 80 hours of gameplay to purchase), and Anise Tatlin from Tales of the Abyss has a doll modeled after her.

Wonder Momo launches March 31 on the Switch eShop. do you pick it up Let us know in the comments! Side Scrolling Beat ‘Em Up ‘Wonder Momo’ is the next arcade archive game
