Hamster has released downloadable titles for 131 consecutive weeks, including the start of the Arcade Archives Neo Geo series when the Nintendo Switch released on 03/03/2017. As a result, they've applied for a Guinness World Record. Having released a total of 167 titles on the Nintendo Switch, this is an unprecedented number of releases. Series producer and president Satoshi Hamada gives us the whole story.
A Record Only Possible Due to Cooperation From Other Companies
What made you decide to develop for the Nintendo Switch, which is serving as the starting point for this record?
(Hamada) We decided on it as soon as we heard about the Nintendo Switch. We'd already started releasing the Arcade Archives series on the PlayStation 4, but we were thinking of bringing it to the Switch as well.
