When viruses make their move and cause havoc in the human body, you can count on Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl to purge them and repair any damage and sickness that had occurred in their wake! And what better time than now, for a humble little family known as the Sable Family is going through some disease-related problems themselves, in which a bunch of microscopic miscreants known as The Pathogen Squad are to blame, that only our lovable microscopic duo can solve!
Exclusively made for the Nintendo Switch by Wayforward Technologies, Vitamin Connection is a very cute and quirky shooter game with a control scheme similar to Robotron: 2084 where the goal is to help Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl clean up the viruses and diseases that lurk inside the bodies of the Sable Family. To sweeten the deal, there are even some mini-games thrown in for good measure!
Vitamin Connection has examples of:
- Animesque: The game has a sort of Japanese Anime feel to it, which is most especially prominent in the Japanese text and songs that have Japanese lyrics.
- Badass Adorable: Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl are incredibly adorable and lovable and are very competent in their jobs as virus busters.
- Blue Boy Pink Girl: Vita-Boy is blue and Mina-Girl is pink. Simple as that.
- Content Warning: Before the title screen shows up, Vitamin Connection opens with this very important warning:Vitamin Connection features a capsule-shaped ship with healing powers. However, Vitamin Connection is a work of fiction. In real life, swallowing a capsule or feeding a capsule to another person or animal can be harmful. Always be responsible and make sure to never swallow a capsule unless you know exactly what it is.
- Cool Ship: Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl pilot a ship in the shape of a blue and pink pill capsule, which looks similar to the blue and red pill capsule of Dr. Mario.
- "Fantastic Voyage" Plot: Given that Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl are traveling inside the human body to heal the Sable Family, this rings true.
- Large Ham: One of the Pathogen Squad members talks like this:I MAKE DISASTER PANTS!
- Meaningful Name: Both Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl are named after vitamins, which makes sense given their duty in restoring the human body and fighting off viruses.
- Silent Protagonist: Played with; While Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl don't talk in-game, per say, the back of the Limited Run physical release box shows that they are capable of speaking◊.
