Critic Reviews for The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors

A remaster of a remake - or something along those lines - this is an exceptional beat 'em-up experience.

A fantastic blast from the past that remasters a long-forgotten classic that should now be recognised as one of the best scrolling beat 'em-ups ever.

The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is a smart and slick reworking of a classic.

I couldn't be happier about the return of the Ninja Warriors. The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors takes classic arcade action and updates it for a brand new era of ninjas. Combat is slick and addictive, and every level is more enjoyable than the last. Unfortunately, the ride just ends far too soon, and without any extra modes or stages to battle your way through after the credits roll, this is an excellent but ultimately far too short experience. I hope the Ninja Warriors stick around longer the next time they return.

Natsume shows one more time its mastery updating 16 bits classics, now with a beat'em up that keeps amazing and entertaining as the first time... For somple players maybe falls short in length and leave you wanting more: the 8 levels can be completed in less than 2 hours. Even with that, it's very fun and another hit for those that love couch coop.

The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is a fun throwback to a simpler time, but the bonuses don't make it a top five beat-em-up.

The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is a surprisingly dense beat-em-up that is lots of fun to play, and the old school aesthetic does it wonders.

The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is a refreshing take on a classic game. Its fast paced action and beat 'em up styles feels like a natural fit on the Nintendo Switch. With its updated graphics, audio, and game modes, it makes this game perfect for a quick fix for action and chaos.
