Who doesn't love a good old ninja game? Rising Star Games has confirmed that it will be bringing Ninja Shodown to the Switch in the not-too-distant future. To celebrate it has released a gloriously ’90s inspired live-action trailer for the game, which you can view above.

Developed by UK-based studio Bitmap Bureau, the game takes the form of a multiplayer arena slash 'em up; here are some key features about the game:

  • 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!

Let us know if you plan to pick this one up when it backflips over to the Switch.
