Ninja Striker! takes visuals and music inspired by the 8-bit era and fires them up with modern touches. Heavily stylised around Japanese themes, your goal is to advance forward with as much speed, flair and combo power as possible. You have double jumps, homing attacks and a special ‘Shinobi Action’ at your disposal; only by mastering each with sharp reflexes will you make it through your quest. You can choose between four characters, each with different abilities, and dash through a range of stages and Boss encounters. Each character changes up the way you play, meaning there’s a lot of fun to be had in battling through the campaign with each warrior. Ninja: This deadly fighter has a Spinning Slash attack and ‘Storm Attack’ special. Kunoichi: She carries plenty of threat and should not be underestimated, with a Spinning Shot attack and ‘Kunai’ special. Chain Sickle: This mysterious fighter’s unique style gives him incredible range, with a Chain Attack and ‘Sickle Slash’ special. Robot Ninja: Slower than his human counterpart but with more health points and the ability to boost through stages, this metallic warrior has a Drill attack and ‘Hammer Attack’ special. With catchy music, varied locations and increasingly dangerous foes, Ninja Striker! will keep you coming back for "one more try". Boost and fight your way through for the highest combos, with maximum rankings of three stars per stage reserved for the most skilled of players. Are you up for the challenge in Ninja Striker!?

Ninja Striker! is the Sega Master System game of your dreams you never knew you needed on your Nintendo Switch. Easy to pick up, nearly impossible to master flawlessly and thus like a true ninja it will take some dedication and discipline while you keep coming back to its charming mains quest. In either docked or portable mode, for five minutes or two hours this is a pure combo/score chaser that will keep you hooked to the screen for generations of ninjas to come.
