Feb04 - Get the Burning Bat! by AndrewDickman Feb04 - Get the Burning Bat! by AndrewDickman
The Ninja Baseball Batmen, probably one of the greatest obscure discoveries I've encountered in my life. This Arcade game is a true, unsung classic that needs some sort of comeback in some way or another. Damn you IREM... where are you? Can I purchase this property?

It looks like a fusion of Power Rangers, Mega Man, and a martial arts comedy.

I MUST LEARN MORE.

Wow. Makes me think of the fictional Samurai Baseball that's mentioned in Gamers 2: Dorkness Rising. A game where you play a samurai baseball player that commits seppaku if you strike out.

Designs and concepts look interesting enough. Now if we could only find out why this never was as popular.

These remind me of the Axem Rangers from Super Mario RPG with blue swapped in from black.

I love the addition of the pink Ninja Baseball Batman(woman?). I'm sure if she was one of the playable characters, more of these arcade games would have found their way to the states.

I played this game with a friend! It's pretty cool stuff. Love the Super Sentai influence! (I'm already a fan myself.)

Incidentally, SCIENCE TASK FORCE DYNAMAN (Toei; 1983), the 7th Super Sentai (and a personal favorite), was originally supposed to be baseball-themed! The original working title was BASEBALL TASK FORCE V-LEAGUER.

I remember discovering this in the arcade back in the day. I was so awesome, I scoured the web and found a copy to play all for myself! Of course, nothing beats a team of 4 kids playing this game at once. Ahh... the memories. :D

I played one of the few arcade units when I was about 10 or so in a restaurant lobby outside Big Sky, Montana. It was AMAZING.

Thanks for the nostalgia.

It's strongly influenced by Super Sentai (the Japanese series POWER RANGERS was Americanized from).
