Narita Boy just released its first gameplay trailer. The 80s cyberpunk beat’em up is infused with nostalgia for old tech and according to this latest footage at least, pretty violent. We spoke with the developer when the project was Kickstarted earlier this year, which originally aimed for a release in late 2018.
I thought I was getting sick of ‘80s-inspired retro-future aesthetics, but then I saw Narita Boy. Yeah, it goes back to a well that’s been tapped countless times, but it does so with style, playful weirdness, and cool dimension-hopping mechanics. It’s currently on Kickstarter.
