SNK Launches Retro Classic RPG Biomotor Unitron For Switch

SNK has launched another retro classic title from the NEOGEO Pocket as Nintendo Switch players can now download the RPG Biomotor Unitron. The company has brought back a number of titles from the old-school handheld console which primarily was released in Japan, giving western audiences a chance to try out games they've either never seen before or rarely had a chance to play beyond a Japanese version. Now we're getting these games fully restored for a modern portable console with proper translation and new updates.

The latest is this dungeon-crawling RPG as you will be taking on the role of a robot that will explore dungeons to obtain materials and take on various enemies and Unitron Masters. The dungeons constantly change so no two adventures are exactly the same. However, the game comes with a rich story that will have you enthralled for hours on end as you discover what took place nearly 200 years ago on this planet when a comet came crashing down into the ocean. Enjoy the latest trailer below as the game is available for download right now.
