First NES Title In Almost 15 Years Released

First NES Title In Almost 15 Years Released

Most of us can look back and remember the glory days of video games. Before memory cards. Before hi-res 3D models.

Back when you had to blow the dust out of the cartridge to get it to turn on. Back to the NES. The Nintendo Entertainment System.

It’s been almost fifteen years since the last NES cartridge was produced. Many college kids break out their old systems and play the classics like Super Mario Bros. and Dunk Hunt still to this day. But someone felt like giving the old system one last try.

Sivak Games brings Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril to the NES. True to its 8-Bit ancestors, Battle Kid puts a simple protagonist against overwhelming odds in this platform adventure as players must navigate through the game’s more than 550 rooms.

For a mere $30, players can order the slick see through green cartridge complete with classic black slip case and instruction manual just like we remember begging our parents to buy us back in the days of our youth from RetroZone.  Quantities may be limited.


After having uncovered a plot to build a Supermech, you head to an ancient high-tech fortress in an effort to prevent this weapon from being completed. You must navigate through the various sectors of the fortress, while battling its denizens and avoiding its many dangers. Along the way, you will uncover items that will allow progress to new locations of the fortress and grant you new abilities.
Over 550 rooms, more than 30 enemy types, and 8 bosses stand between you and victory.

Take a peek at the screens below. We’ll try to dig out our old NES systems to maybe get a review of Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril up here in the near future.

    Looks like a straight rip off of monster party, you battled a flower in a room just like this one and you would bat bubbles that it spit them at you you could swing the bat and bounce them back at the monster and sometime you could turn into a flying gargoyle it was a great game but I have it already doubt I’m going to pay 30 bucks for something I already have with a few tweaks.//

    That’s awesome! I still have an NES in my closet, but I haven’t turned it on in years. This might be the reason I do. 🙂
