New Blip: Narita Boy

Narita Boy, from Studio Koba, is a neo-noir actioner starring the eponymous Narita Boy, a digital hero who has the power to swap between dimensions. The digital world has come under attack and you must explore the landscape and uncover the techno sword, the only weapon that can stave off annihilation. You'll spend your time surfing on a floppy diskette, bashing cuboid beasts with a bigass sword, sliding blocks around to solve environmental puzzles, unleashing photon fury on rows of baddies, and riding transforming digital horsies. The game features a distinct visual style with high-frame animations, unusual proportions, and stylized flourishes to emphasize its hard-hitting combat... all accompanied by an 80's-style synth soundtrack.

The game is coming to PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam in December of 2018, and is also planned for release on PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, but with no official release date for those systems.
