Joe & Mac Remake will be released in 2022

The first game in the cult classic Joe & Mac series is being remade. Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja will land on unspecified consoles and PCs in 2022.

Joe & Mac is called Caveman Ninja in Japan and was developed by Data East. It was first sold in overseas arcade machines in 1991, and then launched in North America, and appeared in NES, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, Amiga, and PC (and other platform).You can even play games, it’s sequel, Now on Switch through its online SNES library. As a nominal pair of cavemen, your mission is to rescue the captive cavemen from the rival tribe. Side-scrolling actions include the use of clubs, boomerangs, and other prehistoric weapons to eliminate other cavemen, dinosaurs, and other threats.

Publisher Microids will not share the trailer or provide more information about the remake, but it has remade visual effects and will adopt a new adventure mode with additional levels. Microids promised to share more information about Caveman Ninja soon. Although Joe & Mac has never reached the mainstream height of Mario or Sonic, these games are solid enough, and the series also has its followers. It will be interesting to see if the gameplay is improved, or if this will be a more faithful update with better graphics. As we have seen in the newly revived Wonder Boy series, a good remake of little-known platform games can bring contemporary success.
