From Asteroid-J and produced by CFK, Ninja Issen (忍者一閃), “Flash of the Ninja”, has been announced for the Nintendo Switch and is projected to release in 2021. The game is described as a “cyberpunk hyper ninja action adventure”.
Check out the trailer that debuted at Tokyo Game Show 2020.
What is Ninja Issen?
You must help the princess and protect her from any more harm, and you will have to do it by breaking the space-time continuum!
You play as the ninja, Kiba, and unfortunately we begin with you wet and soaking in the fact that you failed to protect the princess. The world around Kiba is a strange and big city surrounded by neon lights and holograms. You will have to work your way through the mysterious enemies and find the princess no matter the place or the time.
Find a way to save the princess and bring her back to her original time!
- Teleport your way over gaps or through enemies.
- Attack with sword and kunai in any way you can.
- Run and dash to outmaneuver the competition.
- Challenging bosses that will require all skills.
- Shop to upgrade skills and equipment.
Ninja Issen looks to be a serious throwback to the games of old, and it has a nice modern NES Ninja Gaiden-feel about it. Hopefully we will get more information about this game in the near future. You can follow CFK’s Twitter account for news and updates as they pertain to the game.
