GungHo Entertainment has revealed its newest title, Ninja Gum Action Ninjala. The game mixes parkour, cartoony graphics, and ninja bubble gum action with a crafty weapon system. As of now, the game is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch in a Spring 2019 launch window. The press release describes it as a “morphing ninja gum action game”. Players can craft weapons by blowing bubble gum and fight unconventionally using ninjutsu.
Ninja Gum Action Ninjala was designed by Takeshi Arakawa, the former Senior Director/Co-Producer of the Dissidia: Final Fantasy series. He was also the Planning Director for The World Ends With You. Kazuki Morishita served as Executive Producer for Puzzle & Dragons and LET IT DIE. Players will need to use their parkour skills and quick reflexes if they are to defeat their foes. The game also features a new online mode, as well. Kazuki Morishita had this to say about the game:
“With Ninjala, we are creating a generation-defying game that implements the portable, flexible mechanics of the Nintendo Switch as well as beautifully designed, vibrant levels to appeal to gamers of all ages. Players will experience stylish fight sequences, loveable characters, and wholesome player interaction. Ninjala’s multiplayer capabilities and polished mechanics make it a blast for all players that lets them create bubble gum warfare madness.”
