Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja Remake

Publisher Microids and developer Mr. Nutz Studio have announced a Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja remake for both PC and consoles, with a release set for 2022.

While the remake is set to launch sometime in 2022, specific consoles weren’t announced.

“It’s a real honor to offer gamers the chance to rediscover these characters that marked their generation,” said Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Microids. “We have full confidence in Mr. Nutz Studio to bring these little prehistoric men back to life.”

Tosuke Matsuoka, Data East License Producer from G-MODE Corporation added, “We have full confidence in Microids and Mr. Nutz Studio capability to develop this remake of Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja. It’s a real pleasure to see these iconic video game characters revived with today’s technology. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen these two characters, and their return will delight old fans and new players alike.”

Here’s a brief rundown on the game:

Originally released in the early 90’s on Japanese soil as an arcade game, Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja is an arcade/platformer, playable solo or in cooperation. This new iteration of the game, developed by Mr. Nutz Studio (Toki, Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All!), will invite players to go back to the Prehistoric Age and embody Prehistoric Men, ready to do anything to save the women of their tribe.

More than a remake of the arcade version, Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja will include a handful of new features such as an original adventure mode containing brand new levels!
