Ninjala is a morphing ninja gum action game that allows players to blow bubble gum to craft weapons and use the unconventional fighting method ninjutsu. Adapting to different landscapes, players must use lightning fast reflexes and super parkour mechanics to combat and counter their opponents. The game brings a new era to the world of ninjas through online battles against other players.
Takeshi Arakawa (Dissidia: Final Fantasy senior director and co-producer, The World Ends with You planning director) and Kazuki Morishita (Puzze & Dragons, LET IT DIE executive producer) designed the game. The game supports up to eight-player multiplayer, local or online.
