Xperience this action-sports-RPG classic on Switch and Game Boy Color from Limited Run Games!

Physical game cartridges? Now that’s XTREME! We are XCITED to announce that Xtreme Sports, the genre-busting action-sports-RPG designed by Shantae series director Matt Bozon, is now available to preorder physically, both on Switch and as a Game Boy Color-compatible reproduction cartridge, from Limited Run Games. Featuring five XTREME events and a vast Story Mode, this blast from the past will be available to preorder until March 12, 2023 at limitedrungames.com.

Initially released in the year 2000, Xtreme Sports lets you slip into the athletic bods of energetic Guppi or her boyfriend Finn as you travel to Xtreme Island in an attempt to become the new Xtreme Sports Champion by conquering five awesome, adrenaline-pumping events: Skateboarding, Street Luge, Skyboarding, In-line Skating, and Surfing. Each one features obstacles to avoid, power-ups to utilize, and unique controls to master, and when you aren’t earning medals and competing against opponents like the mischievous Bonehead Gang, you’ll explore the tropical island for secrets and work to uncover a secret plot by the Xtreme Cola Company in this unique mix of sports, action, adventure, and role-playing.

The new Game Boy Color-compatible edition of Xtreme Sports, priced at $44.99, features the same content as the classic Game Boy Color release, now on an XTREME “sunrise orange” translucent cartridge. The Switch version, meanwhile, is a faithful reproduction of the original game on modern hardware using Limited Run Games’ Carbon Engine, which has been previously used for titles such as Shantae and River City Girls Zero. Priced at $34.99, the Switch version retains Xtreme Sports’ vintage gameplay, graphics, and sound, while adding new features such as save states, multiple display options, and a gallery mode.

In addition to the Switch and Game Boy Color-compatible physical editions of Xtreme Sports, the game will be arriving digitally on the Nintendo Switch eShop at a later date; further details will be announced in the future.
