Original Article (Tue 9th Jun, 2020 12:15 BST): GungHo Online Entertainment has announced that its upcoming bubblegum arena brawler Ninjala will be treated to a special livestream next week featuring Japanese pop icon, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
It'll be taking place on the GungHo Twitch channel at 6am BST on 18th June. Fans will get to see more of the game in action, with Kyary Pamyu Pamyu actually playing it herself. You might remember that Kyary also promoted the New 3DS back in the day, starring in a Japanese commercial which covered the system's interchangeable faceplates.
The fifth episode of Ninjala's Dev Diary series has also been released, detailing never-before-seen weapons such as the Scroll Blade and the Drum Beat. The team also shared some fun facts from the recent open beta test including which weapons and costumes were most popular.
Make sure to let us know whether or not you'll be tuning in with a comment below. In case you haven't heard Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's music before, we'll leave you with one of her most famous hits:
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu?! 😮
i love kyary pamyu pamyu 😍
Wait, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is still around? Huh, haven't heard about her in ages.
So shes the person that sang that song.
I can't help but think of Splatoon when I see this game.
Guess that's cool. Not sure who this is though.
They are badly trying to drum up interest around this game but it just looks boring. It even sounds quite boring on paper, who signed off on this..
That video was something else. I’m curious as to what lyrics could possibly go with those visuals.
Never heard of her, not my thing. Cool for those who are into this stuff.
Never heard of her lol. Wonder how much this costs
I played the demo for this and was not impressed. the weird rock paper scissors mechanic ruined it for me.
@NinjaWaddleDee what's that?
@whatyoulookingat There is a mechanic, where if two players clash (which happens most of the time) then the winner of the clash is determined by who pushes which direction on the analog stick. So basically, it's based on luck and guessing what the opponent will pick, instead of skill.
Woah, haven’t seen her in years. I was very into like 4 songs by her in my 2nd year of high school. If there’s a Venn diagram between ‘weeb’ and ‘incredibly camp’ then she goes right in the middle.
Looking forward to it but Splatoon still needs more skill than luck (scissor, stone, paper parry clash) and therefore seems the better game.
I really don't like people/games who try and copy someone else...
This is a blatant Splatoon ripoff...
Even though it may be different they obviously try hard to appeal to Splatoon playerbase etc.
I am all for rivalry etc. but ffs get your own ideas (artwork)...
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is still a thing? Seems like "Ninja Re Bang Bang" came out ages ago...
Huh. I thought she got cancelled because of those text messages.
aaa i love her
I enjoy KPP so I will try to check this out.
@NinjaWaddleDee Yeah I figured since one of the developers worked on Dissidia Final Fantasy and Dissidia 012. Wish someone had told him that a lot of people didn't like that in those games either
I totally forgot about that video! This brings me back...
@CodyMKW Luck in a game is always fun... When it's in your favor.
Just like fighting a soldier in TF2 and eating a random crit rocket, good times.
Christ! You could use that music to torture someone. People like that stuff?
@SquallLeonhart86 She's my favorite singer, so yea
To each their own
@DjinnFighter lol fair enough
@Razer Agree 100%. Playing the beta was a snore, and watching this was my last attempt to get psyched, but no way... just so boring.
The design is great but watching those battles does nothing to sell it, and it was funny seeing all the camera problems at the beginning (as is expected, but still...).
@tgchan they actually do have some original ideas. Instead of the focus being on covering the entire map with your team's color with different ranged weapons, the focus in Ninjala is to score the most points by getting the most KOs. All weapons are melee weapons and fighting other players requires a lot more quick reflexes and reaction time. It's a lot more than just a Splatoon ripoff. I recommend you at least try it when its released.
Coming to USA?
