Flyhigh Works and Circle Entertainment announced today that Ninja Striker! will be released on the Nintendo Switch eShop on Thursday. The game will be priced the same as the Steam version, which launched today, and retail for $3.99 USD.
Ninja Striker is a colourful action game with retro-styled visuals and ‘one more go’ gameplay. Ninja Striker takes visuals and music inspired by the 8-bit era and adds modern touches. Heavily stylised around Japanese themes, your goal is to advance forward with as much speed, flair and combo power as possible. You have double jumps, homing attacks and a special ‘Shinobi Action’ at your disposal; only by mastering each with sharp reflexes will you make it through your quest.
The game has four characters, each with different abilities. Each character changes up the way you play, meaning there’s a lot of fun to be had in battling through the campaign with each warrior.
The four characters are the Ninja, a deadly fighter has a Spinning Slash attack and ‘Storm Attack’ special. Kunoichi has a Spinning Shot attack and ‘Kunai’ special, the mysterious Chain Sickle’s unique style gives him incredible range, with a Chain Attack and ‘Sickle Slash’ special. Finally the Robot Ninja is slower than his human counterpart but with more health points and the ability to boost through stages, this metallic warrior has a Drill attack and ‘Hammer Attack’ special.
