Johnny Turbo’s Arcade: Welcome to the world of Nitro Ball!

Engage in the deadliest game show with Johnny Turbo’s Arcade: Nitro Ball! 

Flying Tiger Entertainment’s Johnny Turbo’s Arcade: Nitro Ball (aka: Gun Ball), is the exciting arena-style shooter by Data East™ that was originally released in 1992.

Nitro Ball features Gary, an Ex-Navy Sergeant and Harry, an Ex-Police Officer who battle their way through a futuristic game show that takes place on vertical pinball worlds. In fact, each arena includes bumpers, buffers, rails and even pinball holes.

There are five different stages with unique enemies and bosses including: Strange Football, Combat Field, Ghost Town, Aliens World and Space Station. Each stage also features a short challenge to destroy a certain number of enemies in a given amount of time.

While the main goal is to annihilate as many goons as possible, players also rack up points to win various items. Nitro Ball is a fast and furious action-packed game filled with dangerous weapons, power-ups and bosses that make gameplay fun and exciting, especially with friends.

Nitro Ball is zooming to the Nintendo Switch™ eShop in North America on August 16, 2018. Pre-orders (in North America) are available right now. Oh yeah, it is coming soon to selected European territories too – so stay tuned!

Features:

  • Play single player or simultaneously with one or two friends
  • Shoot enemies into holes for extra points and prizes
  • Collect various power-ups; one even turns players into a pinball!
  • Complete secret objectives on each stage for added bonuses
  • Vertical play mode is supported for the Real Arcade Feel
