Four-Player Competitive and Co-Op Action Game to Appear on all Major Console and PC Formats Fall 2017
LOS ANGELES, CA – May 24, 2017 – Rising Star Games announced today that it has entered into a publishing partnership with UK-based development studio Bitmap Bureau to bring their latest title, Ninja Shodown, to all major console and PC gaming formats later this year.
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!
The year is 199X and the world teeters on the brink of total destruction. The mystical Jade Katana is stolen. Its power is so lethal that in the wrong hands, humanity will surely fall. And so, the Viper Clan, sworn guardians of the Jade Katana, prepare to embark on their most perilous mission yet: retrieve the sword at all costs! Use katanas, shurikens, bombs, machine guns, shotguns, bazookas and more as you battle your way through a variety of locations to become the ultimate ninja and fulfill the ancient vow of the Viper Clan.
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.
- Customize your ninja, then 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!
