Jetboard Joust, a sequel to a three-decade-old game, will be released in May.

This game definitely retains all of the old-school arcade flavor you would expect if you closed your eyes and tried to imagine a game with the name Jetboard Joust. It is about maintaining altitude and avoiding damage while blasting all the alien invaders you can. You will use several different weapons to vanquish threats and rescue people who are in danger. To keep things fresh, there are procedurally generated stages within a “modern roguelike design,” and you’ll use gold coins collected to buy upgrades for your armor, your jetboard, and arsenal expansion. There is a campaign with branching paths and “massive, multi-stage boss fights on the road to victory.”

Developer BitBull and publisher Freedom Games have given Jetboard Joust a May 18, 2021 release date on Nintendo Switch and Atari VCS, retailing for $9.99. The game is a sequel to 1989’s Skateboard Joust from James Closs on Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, and Amstrad CPC microcomputers. Closs is also the founder of BitBull and as such is continuing his vision with this new game, saying, “When I developed the original Skateboard Joust as a kid in 1989, I never would have imagined one of my games would be available on a Nintendo console. So I am over the moon to be launching Jetboard Joust for Nintendo Switch on May 18!”
