This time, the presentation goes over some of the new stages, weapons and collab events the team has planned for Season 3, as well as a few details about Chapter 2 of Story Mode.
Check it all out below:
The devs are back again with TONS of juicy details about Ninjala Season 3! New weapons, a new stage, new collabs, and Chapter 2 of Story Mode highlight Dev Diary #10!
Our master ninjas, Morishita-san and Kaneda-san, begin by reminding everyone about the Ninjala X Sonic the Hedgehog collab. It’s going on NOW and will be live until 10/21/20 18:59 (PDT), so be sure to check it out!
Moving on, the devs share a boatload of details about Season 3 of Ninjala! Season 3 begins on 10/29/20 and will run until 1/7/2021 (PST).
The first big addition to the game for Season 3 is the all-new Spectator Mode. This feature will be available in Room Battles and allow viewers to see all the action from both an overhead perspective as well as from the individual views of each competitor!
Next up for Season 3 is the new “Croissant Arena” stage! This new stage features varying elevations, gum rails, Dash Plates, and even a special “Drone Monitor” that allows you to see the locations of Drones within the stage.
Season 3 will also see the introduction of two new hammer weapons! These new hammers have a unique look and will also come equipped with a new Ninjutsu, new Special attacks, and a new Gum Shoot!
The in-game shop will also receive an upgrade in Season 3. More items will be available for purchase and you’ll also have an opportunity to purchase items from the past that you may have missed the first time around!
Beginning in Season 3, one of the most highly requested features will also be added to the game: non-consumable weapon skins! Ninjas who purchase the Ninjala Pass will now be able to use their Ninja Gum weapon skins without consuming them! Other requested features that will be added to the game include non-combat areas, an increase to the number of Favorite Kits you can save from 10 to 20, and adjustments that speed up the matchmaking process and create more balanced matches.
There will be new in-game collabs appearing in Season 3 as well! To begin, Japanese pop princess Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s mega-hit Ninja Re Bang Bang (Steve Aoki Remix) will be available for purchase as an in-game BGM music track! Other items available in this collab include a Ninja Re Bang Bang-themed dance emote, IPPON Decoration, and a costume styled after the outfit Kyary wore in the original Ninja Re Bang Bang music video! The Kyary Pamyu Pamyu collab will run from 10/29 until 11/26 (PST), so don’t miss it!
Additional details about Season 3 collabs are still a secret (shh!), but we’ll be revealing more info at a later date. Stay tuned to the official Ninjala website and social channels for all the latest news and updates!
Next, Season 3 will see the release of Chapter 2 of Story Mode! This chapter’s protagonist is Berecca, and the story will follow her quest to uncover the truth behind the death of her father. You’ll be able to earn special items for your Avatar for both completing her story and for getting high scores on each episode!
Finally, a new episode of the Ninjala Cartoon Anime will be arriving soon! Kappei will be the star this time around, and even Gumchi will make an appearance. How does Gumchi fit into Kappei’s story? Make sure to watch the episode and find out!
Season 3 of Ninjala looks to be a wild ride and we’re excited to have you aboard for the journey, ninjas! Thanks as always for watching, and we’ll see you next time. IPPON!!
