Status: Existence Unconfirmed

New Kids on the Block was an alleged NES game being developed by Parker Brothers based around the American boy band of the same name likely developed sometime during the groups peak years between 1988 and 1993.

Very little is known about the game, with the only evidence of its existence being a prototype box for it that was sold on eBay in 2009 by Tracy Baran, wife of former Electronic Gaming Monthly editor Andrew Baran, who held onto the item after he left the magazine.[1] The box consists only of photo paper wrapped around a cardboard box with Velcro on the back, meaning that it was likely only made for pitching purposes, so it is possible that the game may not have even started development at all.
