Nitro Game Injection #149: Ninja Kick Kinder Surprise (Easter Special featuring Pongball )


Larry and Slider recover from their Easter festivities and join Kyle for some awesome Easter/Spring-themed game music. They highlight tunes from Infamous, Yasuo Sako, Rushjet1, Blak Omen, Press Play on Tape, Bladiator, SnappleMan, Masaya Matsuura, and more! Slider also tackles two NGI Art Challenges this week, resulting in Ninja Kick The Damn Rabbit and Yoshi and Kinder Eggs!

We also feature an NGI exclusive track from the upcoming Sapphire Skies Flash game, and composer Shannon “Pongball” Mason also drops in for an impromptu, unplanned interview to provide some insight on the project and her works. Check it out!
