Reckon you can nail the Salmon Ladder, speed up the Warped Wall and hang on to the Log Grip? Bet you think of yourself as a bit of a ninja eh? Well, now is the time to prove it as American Ninja Warrior: Challenge releases on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Available right now on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, American Ninja Warrior: Challenge sees you heading off on the ultimate journey, one which sees you tackling the most feared course the world has ever seen, battling against wicked obstacles in order to prove you have what it takes to hit a measly button at the end.
As you may expect, success in American Ninja Warrior: Challenge will rely on many things, but strength and endurance are most definitely the key components to how this videogame plays out – even if the type of strength and amount of endurance required is slightly different to what you would have seen participants hitting up the real thing bring to the table.
American Ninja Warrior: Challenge is not for the weak, but should you wish to conquer the challenging career mode, will be able to put yourself up against the clock – and your friends and family – in order to prove your worth and become the ultimate ninja warrior! With city courses to complete, and then a stunning four-stage course modelled after the famed Mt. Midoriyama in Japan, you can be sure the test will be real. If it all comes across as too much of a test of your ability though, the chance to create your own custom course is a much appreciated one.
As you may expect to hear, American Ninja Warrior is only available for those Xbox One gamers residing in the North American region of this wonderful world and therefore an embrace of the dollar will have to take hold for you to get in on the action. Should you be there or thereabouts, and wish to give this challenge a go, then you’ll need to hit the Xbox Store and stump up a cool $39.99. Those on PS4 and Nintendo Switch can also get in on the action by hitting up their own stores too.

The big unanswered question we are concerned with though is this – is American Ninja Warrior: Challenge better than Doritos Crash Course 2?!?
