    Through an update on the Nintendo website, Balloon FIght was confirmed to be one of three games to be available to subscribers of the Nintendo Switch Online service when it launches in 2018. The other two games were Super Mario Bros. 3 and Dr. Mario, both also being NES games. All three games will release with online capabilities, although what exactly that entails is unclear. While online multiplayer seems to be the most obvious answer, it could also include some form of online leaderboard, although this is purely speculation. Either way, this will likely bring in a whole new audience and could possibly even help in forming a stronger community around the game. Surely, this is exciting for Balloon Fight fans, as there has never before bee…

    Each new Balloon Fight game usually brings some sort of twist or unique feature, such as with story, gameplay, controls, or even the system it's on and the gimmicks that come with it. However, the series has somewhat fallen into two sub-series: The "Balloon Fighting" joust-like clear-the-screen type games, and the "Balloon Trip" score-based endurance type games. While the former is usually multiplayer, the latter is usually single-player, with of course the occasional exception for each. 


    While the classic "Balloon Fighting" type games seem to be less frequent, this can somewhat be derived from the early handheld iterations of Balloon Fight, namely the Game & Watch and Balloon Kid (Otherwise known as Balloon Fight GB), which likely leaned t…

    Hello! It's not hard for anyone to tell that I'm a huge fan of Balloon Fight. In fact, it has become so much part of my thinking that I have delved deep into all the sources I have to solve all the mysteries of Balloon Fight. It's quite a large task, although I will attempt to accomplish it and post my findings through my blog. For today, I have decided to begin with solving the mystery of the Vs. Balloon Fight prototype's "Rocket".


    In case you don't spend your time digging through mountains of arcade flyers in search of prerelease screenshots, the "Rocket" I am referring to is a strange, rocket-esque blue object that appears in a grand total of two unique screenshots of Vs. Balloon Fight. These screenshots have been taken sometime during d…

    Wordmark Change

    February 9, 2016 by Bluestone19

    Hello! As you may have noticed, the wordmark (The little "logo" at the top left of the page) of the wiki has changed. I changed it because, simply, the old one was fairly old and it was not as high of quality as it could have been. The new wordmark features a more symmetrical design and a font more reminiscent of Vs. Balloon Fight's title screen. If anyone has suggestions, just let me know.


    The new design uses the more unique font of Vs. Balloon Fight's logo, which is likely the most signifigant change. "Wiki" is now centered, and has "Balloon Fight" directly above it, and the words "Balloon Fight" now have a blue border around them, also in reference to Vs. Balloon Fight. In addition, sets of three pipes were added to both sides, along wit…
