Narita Boy is a tribute to the arcades of the 80s, that puts us in the shoes of a digital warrior chosen as the worthy wielder of the Techno-Sword, a legendary weapon capable of also becoming a laser weapon or a shotgun. A game that will also have a visual section that will refer to the arcade machines of the 80s.
Studio Koba wanted to develop a techno story resorting to side scrolling and combat that will face us against all kinds of enemies and final bosses of different classes and powers. All this in a world heavily inspired by other arcade games and 2D platformers that had its peak in the eighties and nineties.
Being a tribute, in Narita Boy we will find a huge amount of references to the pop culture of the time (video games, music …) while we enjoy a deep story full of strange and charismatic characters. All decked out with a beautiful pixel art that will be one of the great assets of the game, along with a soundtrack inspired by the sound of analog synthesizers, and whose main mission will be to help the player travel to another time, to the past.
Do you feel like Narita boy? Well, remember that the game is also linked to the Saving The Arcade World campaign, created with a very clear and laudable objective: to contribute financially to the preservation of arcade video games and arcade machines, an activity that almost always comes from the fans themselves. who end up organizing rooms and museums to exhibit their work (such as Arcade Vintage) and that others also enjoy it, and who since the beginning of the pandemic, have not lived their best moment.
