About The Game

Super Dodge Ball, as its name implies, is an dodgeball-based arcade video game.

The player takes control of the American team, who must compete against five other nations in a worldwide dodge ball tournament. In the first match, the player represent the state Dallas and must defeat their rivals from Chicago to represent America in the World Cup. Afterwards, the player will take on England, Iceland, China and Africa before fighting against the champions from Japan.


Released in November 1987.


This game is known in Japan as "Nekketsu Koukou Dodgeball-bu". The main difference between the 2 versions is that the nationalities of the player's team and the final team are switched.
