Ninjala kicked off its open beta yesterday, giving Switch owners a chance to try out the game before launch. Dataminers have since gone to work and uncovered new information about the game. Twitter users OatmealDome and LeanYoshi have provided information regarding some collaboration items (including Sonic), story mode, microtransactions with Jala currency, and more.

Here’s the full roundup:

Datamine details

– A few references to the Sonic series within cosmetic item descriptions
– Ex: “A sticker of the mad scientist Dr. Robotnik striking a victory pose. Let the whole world know your ambitions.”
– There is a solo story mode where you “Fend off the attacks of the invading space ninja!”
– Play as Van, who has a mentor called Master Gramps
– Each “volume” is purchased from the eShop
– Each one appears to be four episodes long
– In-game currency purchasable via microtransactions called “Jala” and a “Ninjala Pass”
– There is a Gumball Machine (basically gacha) that gives you “special items”
– “Jala is valid for 150 days from the day of purchase”
