Shack's Arcade Corner: Ninja Baseball Bat Man

The name is pretty self-explanatory, folks. Check out this awesome arcade game.


This week on Shack's Arcade Corner, we take a look at Ninja Baseball Bat Man. The arcade game hit the US in 1993 and was developed and pulbished by IREM Corp. Ninja Baseball Bat Man was a side-scolling beat-em-up arcade game that had some really unique characters and enemies. The four playable characters were influenced by popular MLB stars of the era like Jose Canseco, Roger Clemens, and Darryl Strawberry. The arcade cabinet came in two, three, and four player configurations and sold way better in Japan than in the states. If you were never lucky enough to see this game back in the day, you need to watch this video to find out more about Ninja Baseball Bat Man.
