The Nintendo Vs. System was a system of arcade hardware. The key features of this system were the ability to easily swap out the games with a conversion kit and cabinets which featured two monitors. With the dual monitors, each side of the system could be configured to play different games, or with specific games, both sides could interact, allowing for each player to have independent views of a shared game.
There were two distinct cabinet designs that were released. The upright version used a form factor similar to many other arcade cabinets, and the cocktail version (often referred to as a "red tent" cabinet for its distinct design) was suited for playing while seated.
The hardware of the system was similar to that of the Nintendo Entertainment System.
Vs. Balloon Fight was one of the few games on the system that required the use of both sides of the cabinet. In the game, each player could either play independently on each side, or both could play simultaneously to either cooperate or compete directly.
