Ninjala 2 Million Downloads

Last week saw the launch of Ninjala on Nintendo Switch, a new online arena brawler that's often been likened to Nintendo's own Splatoon, and publisher GungHo Online Entertainment has revealed that it has now surpassed a whopping two million downloads.

It actually managed to generate one million downloads in its first 16 hours, and has now reached two million in less than a week. Not all players have had the best experience since the game launched, but GungHo is celebrating the new milestone by offering everyone an in-game gift - simply download the game by 26th August to receive 300 Jala (Ninjala's in-game currency) at no cost.

That's not all, though, as the team has also released the game's sixth dev diary, a new video which focuses on Ranked Matches and how to climb the leaderboards.

Ranked Matches are how players will be able to prove themselves as true IPPON masters! Upon reaching level 5 through Quick Battle or Room Battle games, players will unlock the Ninjala Battle Mode, allowing them to participate in Ranked Matches in both Team Battle mode or Battle Royale mode.

In these matches, players with similar ranks are pitted against each other as they battle their way to the top of the leaderboards. Ranks will increase or decrease after each match depending on performance. Players will receive rewards based on their ranks, and those who finish near the top and earn the rank of ‘Ninja Legend’ or ‘Ninja God,’ will receive special icons at the season’s end.
