Anyone else been playing this game? Godlike beat'em'up that's pretty approachable even for people not already into the genre. Action game fundamentals can get you far.
It's a vastly updated version of the SNES game Ninja Warriors Again with added abilities, a lot of combo potential, multiplayer mode and two additional characters (apparently balancing the huge mech took a stupid amount of dev time haha)

Normally I'd link some high level play by random players, but in this case the devs themselves made a really good trailer with a lot of tech in it already. Clearly a remake by people into the nitty-gritty of action games.

Absolutely adored the game. One of the few games I did an 1cc on (not usually one for such a thing). Like most I really gravitated towards the Ninja first, though Yaskha(?) really connected with me too as well as the Kunoichi. Just such a fantastic game. I really liked how the first boss was immediately a skill-check for most players and it sort of eased up aftewards for a bit, really enjoyable. Great OST as well. I know Iconoclast did a 1cc run of all the characters, he's always pretty realiable for high level gameplay.

Again, cool to see you here Zaarock! What pushed you to make the jump :)?

Special mention of the regular retail package consisting of the game, a manual, a poster, aaand some stickers! So 90s twenty years later! Cool

Still skipping Kunoichi...

I was focusing on Raiden at first but ended up usually going with Kunoichi when going back to the game. Just a nice overall flow to the game and easy to use (all the characters are amazing tbh)



Iconoclast runs are solid but done right after the games launch, so not much tech or optimization found. For example he didn't know kunoichi down throw is a combo starter, that kind of mid-level thing. Same for a lot of the stuff I put up honestly.
Some of the most active players I've seen are japanese and korean optimizing speedruns.

Maybe the highest level replay overall? this guy has been super dedicated to figuring out how to perfect Ninja.

Coop Yaksha + Raiden with the above player


There are lot of not obvious combo routes eg.

Been getting sick of discussing various things only on discord or twitter when discussion boards have been around as a better format for many things. Sorta convinced on that now. I knew about this forum existing early on, nice work on this site.

Oh, that's you Zaarock. Pretty sure I'm subscribed to you on YouTube. I haven't looked through my stuff for a while so I can't remember why though.

Fantastic videos, thank you for sharing. With Action Games I tend to know the 'go to' channels and also which ones to avoid, but with this genre it's a bit of a mystery for me still. Watching them as we speak.

Cheers man, means a lot. Glad you're enjoying your time here!
