GungHo Online Entertainment has confirmed a release date for Ninjala on Nintendo Switch, their upcoming free-to-play online multiplayer action game.
You play as a modern-day ninja who is challenged to take part in the Ninjala tournament, using Ninja-Gum to blow bubbles that can be hurled at your enemies and having the chance to craft your weapons.
Without the need for a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, you will participate in Battle Royale-style matches against up to eight players.
Whoever earns the most points during each match will be declared the winner, which are scored by defeating your opponents, obtaining items, destroying drones positioned across the stage, and more.
You can even earn extra points by taking down your opponents with an IPPON, that are described as impressive finishing techniques.
There’s also a cooperative mode where you can team up with your friends to battle it out in 4-on-4 team matches, where you must work to secure more points than your opposition.
Your avatar can also be customised with costumes and accessories from unique fashion brands that can be combined as you wish to create a style that’s all your own.
“Ninjala is unlike anything we have ever created before,” explains GungHo Online Entertainment president and CEO, Kazuki Morishita.
“How many other games let you battle your opponents with bubble gum while running up buildings as a colorful ninja? We believe Switch players will really connect with Ninjala’s compelling online PvP experience and become the ninja they always knew they could be!”
Ninjala will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 28th May 2020.
