This sports simulation is due for full release at some point next year, and they direct us to the official website to keep tabs on the game's progress. This trailer shows off the five Ds of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge. Here are the details:

Japanese videogame publisher, Happinet, today announced that Dodgeball Rising will launch in 2018 (TBA) for PC.

With support for up to six-player matches, a wide array of unique Dodgeball warriors from all walks of life, simple controls, and engaging special moves, Dodgeball Rising brings the classic schoolyard sport to life as never-before-seen.

Key Features:

  • A Remarkable Roster: Choose from 11 unique Dodgeball warriors from all walks of life, including Samurai, Ninja, Sushi Chefs, Kabuki Entertainers, Sumo Wrestlers, and more!
  • Offline and Online Multiplayer: Supports up to three players for local co-op and up to six players in online battles via 2v2 and 3v3 team battles. AI players can be called in to fill empty slots.
  • Story Mode: Enter the Ultimate Imperial Dodgeball Tournament in this singleplayer mode, and unique story for each character.
  • Amazing Specials: Build up your Rising Gauge to unleash a variety of over-the-top special moves and attacks to defeat your opponents.

I loved that game....

That game is probably my favorite NES game, definitely my favorite multiplayer NES game.

However this homage, Dodgeball Rising, does NOT have 3 team members on the outside of the ring, around the opponent's side of the court! Inexcusable! I'll still probably check it out eventually.
