To celebrate the release of Ninja Shodown, Rising Star Games has released a gloriously ’90s inspired live-action trailer for the game.
Developed by the team that brought you the critically-acclaimed pixel action platform games Super House of Dead Ninjas and 88 Heroes, Ninja Shodown sees every ninja for themselves in the ultimate battle for the Jade Katana! Fight alone, team up with, or take on, friends in intense multiplayer arena-based combat where the mighty prevail and the weak pay the ultimate price: death and dishonour!
Ninja Shodown key features:
- Intense local multiplayer action for one to four players, either competitively or co-operatively… you choose!
- Six distinct game modes – Last Ninja, Battle, Coin, Crown, Arcade and Infinite – and five unique locations – Temple, Dojo, Downtown, Museum and Area 88 – each with their own gameplay features.
- Use a range of deadly ninja (and not-so-ninja) weapons to destroy anyone who gets in your way!
- Awesome stereo techno soundtrack by Matt Gray… feel the retro vibe!
