We know a lot of you are hurting with the ending of Super Mario Bros. 35 on Nintendo Switch. But fret not, as another beloved classic has returned with a multiplayer twist!
Nintendo has announced that Gyromite 70 will soon make its way to Nintendo Switch, bringing with it all the fun and excitement of the original NES game. In this fun adventure, players will compete with their own separate Professor Hectors, making their way through laboratories as quickly as they can while avoiding getting crushed by pistons. They’ll also need to defeat as many Smicks as possible in order to stay alive and become the top Gyromite player in a field of 70.
“It’s exciting to see Gyromite make a return after all these years!” said Doug Bowser, president of Nintendo of America. “Players will be able to compete against one another in this fast-paced game to see whose Professor Hector will come out on top. And we’ve got an assortment of R.O.B. stickers for players to unlock and share with their friends. Move over, Mario!”
On top of that, Gyromite 70 will introduce the R.O.B. Switch gameplay mode. For the first time ever, players can mimic the classic NES robot, using their hands to move around like a robot to randomly open and close pipes on rival players.
“It’s a game that’s all about competition!” said the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto. “And you don’t want to smash Professor Hector anytime soon. Also, please don’t misinterpret that as Professor Hector coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I’m already in trouble for confirming Waluigi coming to the game. I’ve said too much!”
Gyromite 70 will be available for a limited time on the Nintendo Switch Online service, for subscribers to enjoy at no charge. The original NES Gyromite game is coming as well, for those that need a little bit of practice.
“Hey, it’s me, Reggie,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, former president of Nintendo of America. “See if you can beat my Gyromite 70 score. I dare you.” You can download Gyromite 70 for Nintendo Switch starting today, April 1st.
