Journey through Japan in 1517, a time of feud where ninja mercenaries wage war with deception, sabotage and assassination in Shukuchi Ninja.
Coming to Xbox One and X|S, PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation today – we’re looking at a 7pm UK time launch – is Shukuchi Ninja.
Shukuchi is a Japanese word that translates to “reduced earth”. Ninjas use this technique to move quickly and efficiently meaning they are nearly impossible to see. In Shukuchi Ninja you do just that by making the most of unique controls to fly through the air at astonishing speed, literally bouncing off the walls and your enemies and instantly teleporting to quickly counter attacks.
With over 60 levels and 7 bosses, enemies will not be in short supply. Sounds dangerous – but with his power of healing you can help the Shukuchi Ninja to ensure he doesn’t die.
Shukuchi Ninja is a fast-paced, high intensity arcade game with unique controls. Slash with your ninjatō, throw shuriken (ninja stars) at hard to reach enemies, and generally create mayhem as you fly through each of the levels and build up your attack strikes. It’s a simple premise but the fast pace and bright pixel art graphics promise to keep you engaged.
Key game features include:
- Beautiful modern pixel art graphics
- Traditional Japanese OST with modern elements
- Over 60 levels and 7 bosses
- Fast paced gameplay
- Unique controls
Developed by 2Awesome Studio, who were also behind Startup Company Console Edition and another platformer Rise of Fox Hero, if you enjoyed these games Shukuchi Ninja looks to be a safe bet. It is found releasing on the Xbox Store at a very modest £4.99, with a 20% launch discount, which knocks another quid off the price, it may well be worth a download.
