GungHo Online Entertainment has announced that their newest title for the Nintendo Switch, Ninjala, a free-to-play online PvP game that brings bubble gum, parkour, and ninjas to the fight. The game will be released worldwide as a free download on the Nintendo eShop starting from May 28th, 2020. A new trailer featuring gameplay has revealed during the past Nintendo Direct live stream.
The trailer revealed that Ninjala will be available on Switch consoles worldwide, allowing players around the world to compete with each other. Players can choose from a selection of colorful ninja kids and jump into eight-player free-for-all slugfests, or join forces with friends for 4v4 team fights. Test your inner ninja skills by morphing ‘Ninja-Gum’ into unique weapons on the fly, and use ninjutsu and super parkour mechanics to jet around the battlefield. A Nintendo Switch Online subscription will not be required to play matches online, and players can look forward to a variety of skins and emotes to give even more personality to their ninjas.
“Ninjala is unlike anything we have ever created before,”
“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!”
Kazuki Morishita, President & CEO of GOE
