Ninja action game Shinobi non Grata coming to Switch
Shinobi non Grata has been announced for Switch, and we also have confirmation that a physical release is planned.
The upcoming project comes from Flyhigh Works, Studio Pico, and Esquadra. Strictly Limited Games will be handling the physical editions of the retro platformer.
Below is an overview of Shinobi non Grata with more information:
It is 1838, the 9th year of the Tenpō era – a time of turmoil in Japan. Genba Kisaragi, leader of the Oboro Ittō clan forms an alliance with demons with the objective of overthrowing the bakufu government. Only one dares stand before them; Kaina, the descendent of a bloodline of shinobi specialized in fighting demons.
Grab your trusty sword Murasame and survive the bloodshed in this hardcore 2D ninja action game! By using your seven shinobi weapons like Shuriken, Kusarigama and Elekiter, you’ll fight your way through hordes of enemies!
Discover many different locations like an abandoned shrine, a valley of ghosts, a ninja mansion and defeat the boss at the end of each… But watch out, they won’t go down easily.
