Fans of the classic Pocky & Rocky series are in for a treat later this year!
Publisher Natsume has confirmed that Pocky & Rocky Reshrined for Nintendo Switch will be heading west in the future, with a release window of Fall 2021. The game was also co-developed by none other than Tengo Project, who are responsible for the retro remasters of Wild Guns: Reloaded and Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors on Switch.
