GungHo Online Entertainment has finally shared more details on Ninjala's upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog collaboration, including its launch date and info on what exactly will be going down.
It'll all be kicking off on 23rd September, lasting for almost a month until 21st October. During that time, players will be able to join in the fun with a variety of Sonic-themed items including:
- Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles avatar outfits
- Sonic and Dr. Eggman IPPON decorations
- A Dr. Eggman Gum Utsusemi transformation
These items will be available to purchase with Jala (a currency that you can acquire through simply playing the game) at the in-game shop.
That's not all, though, as the latest Dev Diary video (above) has also shown off an upcoming game mode called 'Featured Battle'. This new mode shakes things up by adding limited-time events that feature "wild new ways to play". Here's more:
Coming in early October, the new game mode Featured Battle will be added to Ninjala – with Beast Attack! making its debut as the very first limited-time event. Players can expect new events to appear periodically in Featured Battle, each with unique and varied gameplay elements.
Beast Attack! is an extreme ninja version of tag where eight players enter an arena and some are randomly chosen to become a ‘Beast.’ The Beasts must hunt down and defeat the ‘ninja’ players as quickly as possible in order to return to their ninja form and regain the ability to earn points. The longer the ninja players avoid the Beasts, the more points they earn. If players are too slow and defeated, they then become a Beast and must defeat a ninja to start earning points again.
For hot-dogging Ninjala players, taunting the Beasts with in-game emotes will earn you extra points, but don’t admire yourself too long or you’ll get tagged easily! Each ninja player is limited to the same ability set for an even playing field, but it’s every ninja for themself once the chase begins!
Ninjala is currently in its second season, which introduced new weapons, new abilities, a new stage and more.
