GungHo is handing out a free gift to all players. Those that log in before January 7, 2021 can obtain 100 Jala.

Ninjala is out now for Switch via the eShop.


GungHo has put out the fourth anime episode for Ninjala. Today’s video is centered around Kappei, “a young boy from Iga who practices swordsmanship under the watchful eye of his grandfather.”

Here’s a description of the episode, along with a rundown of the cast:

GungHo recently received a pretty big collaboration with the Sonic the Hedgehog series. But given how the game is on Switch and the close relationship between the two companies, could we see a Nintendo partnership as well? GungHo certainly isn’t ruling out the possibility.

Speaking with Gamereactor, CEO Kazuki Morishita said:

GungHo has shared a bunch of information about what it has in store for Ninjala as part of the latest developer diary.

In the video, Season 3 is covered with plenty of details. Players can look forward to a new Spectator Mode, “Croissant Arena” stage, a pair of hammer weapons, and an upgraded in-game shop. There will also be requested features such as non-consumable weapon skins, non-combat areas, an increase to the number of Favorite Kits you can save from 10 to 20, and adjustments that speed up the matchmaking process and create more balanced matches. Story Mode Chapter 2 is also incoming featuring Berecca. Finally, a collaboration is planned with Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and the Ninja Re Bang Bang song. And outside of the game, the next anime episode is coming soon featuring Kappei.
