We haven't really been keeping track of Hamster's Arcade Archives releases for Nintendo's arcade games. I decided to make a list of them here for my own reference, but maybe you guys might find it handy. Also, we can use this thread to discuss them if you'd like.
Latest Release: Golf (Vs.)
Upcoming Releases: Balloon Fight (Vs.)
Release Date (D/M/Y)
Clu Clu Land (Vs.)
Donkey Kong Jr.
Donkey Kong 3
Ice Climber (Vs.)
Super Mario Bros. (Vs.)
Urban Champion (Vs.)
It's a shame we haven't seen more "deep cuts" like Sky Skipper, but maybe it didn't sell very well.
I'd still love to see Popeye, but obviously there are the licensing issues. Vs. Duck Hunt would be pretty cool, too, but I'm not sure how they would handle the zapper controls.

Thanks for this thread Nester! ^^ Um, does the VS. Castlevania release loosely count? As Nintendo don't own the rights but it was part of Nintendo VS. System series (VS. Raid on Bungeling Bay, VS. The Goonies, VS. Slalom, VS. Trojan are also like this). Specifically (though Hamster publishes the Switch release now) did Nintendo publish the original VS. Castlevania cabinet flyers, etc.

None of the third-party Vs. System games are listed on NinDB, so I assume Nintendo had no direct involvement with them. They simply made the arcade hardware.
It is interesting that third-party Vs. System games are being released as part of Arcade Archives. So far, there is Vs. Castlevania and Vs. Gradius, and interestingly, Vs. 10-Yard Fight is bundled in with the original arcade version.

I guess a lof of pre-Donkey Kong arcade games aren't really that notable, with some being blatant clones of other games. I do want to see at least Radar Scope and Sheriff, though. Especially Radar Scope, which features a cool pseudo-3D angled view and gradient background, being far more advanced than the Famicom. It's also not playable by other means, unlike Sheriff being a minigame in the first WarioWare.
