Two years after its initial announcement, Ninjala is about to make its debut on Switch. The action battle game will be launching on June 24.

Ahead of the upcoming release, we were able to speak with game designer Kazuki Morishita, who also worked on the original story. Morishita shared some interesting origins about Ninjala, spoke about some of the game’s inspirations, wanting to focus on reduced network delay, what’s in store after launch, and more.

Ninjala is a game that’s actually taken quite awhile to release. After it was announced at E3 2018, GungHo originally planned to have the title ready the following year. However, last May, Ninjala experienced a lengthy delay. It was ultimately pushed back an entire year.

In an interview with Nintendo Everything, GungHo spoke about the delay. Game designer Kazuki Morishita told us that the game now has “a completely new server design,” and the extra time was also used to improve the overall experience.

Morishita said:

GungHo held a live stream for Ninjala a few hours ago in which it had a whole lot of news to share about the game. Information was provided regarding the Story Mode, a new anime video, Season 1 content, and Crow Tengu Bundle DLC Pack.
