Bubble Bobble & Racket Attack retrospective: Doubles matches | NES Works #089

Watch on Youtube

Youtube Video Description:

It's two for two for the road this week with Bubble Bobble, a game specifically designed to be played with another person, and Racket Attack, the second-ever NES tennis game which, like Nintendo's Tennis, offers support for doubles play (though not competitive play). Amidst all the moral panic about the way video games were rotting the brains of America's youth and turning us into violent killers, here's a pair that emphasizes cooperation. Stupid moral panickers. Production note: NES footage captured from @Analogue Nt Mini. Video upscaled to 720 with @Retro Tink 5X.
