EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - March 26, 2020 - GungHo Online Entertainment (GOE) today announced that its newest title for the Nintendo Switch, Ninjala, will be released worldwide as a free download on the Nintendo eShop on May 28, 2020 JST. A new trailer featuring gameplay, the world setting of Ninjala, and a release date was shown during today’s official Nintendo Direct livestream.

 

The trailer revealed that Ninjala will be available on Switch consoles worldwide, allowing players across the globe to face off against 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,” said Kazuki Morishita, President & CEO of GOE. “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!”
