It’s time to save the Digital Kingdom! Narita Boy, the ’80s-inspired action platformer from Studio Koba and Team 17 has officially launched on Nintendo Switch. Dripping with a neon and synth wave aesthetic, Narita Boy sets players off on a heroic digital adventure that would be right at home in a sci-fi film from the days of VHS tapes and analog monitors.

Here’s a new trailer straight from the digital realm, along with more info on the game’s story from its official eShop listing:

 

 

“Narita Boy becomes a tremendous hit! Copies of cartridges are flying off physical shelves worldwide. Within weeks Narita Boy is the best-selling video game of all time, critically acclaimed for its power-fantasy wielding the Techno-sword and taking players on a journey like no other.

Meanwhile, inside the binaural code the digital realm connects with reality. Him has returned and deleted The Creator’s memories. Supervisor program, Motherboard, and her agents have activated the Narita Boy protocol.

The Stallions are coming, and the Digital Kingdom needs a hero.”

 

Narita Boy is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $24.99.
