In just a few days, GungHo’s cartoon ninja- battle game has blown up to a spectacular milestone. Ninjala, released on June 24, has already reached 1 million downloads.
News of the achievement was disclosed via the official Twitter account of Ninjala.
Ninjala, a free to play title, features two exciting multiplayer modes including an eight-player ground battle and a 4v4 team battle, as well as a single-player training mode and Story Mode DLC.
The concept of the game is straightforward: get more points to conquer the ranking, all improved with enhancements in the form of magic chewing gums.
Ninjala also offers its users a paid single-player mode, in it, the events within the world in which the colorful brawler set will investigate.
“We knew players of all ages would love Ninjala’s special mixture of colorful fun and ninja fighting. But this reception is both incredibly exciting and humbling,” said Kazuki Morishita, President & CEO of GungHo Online Entertainment. “We are completely blown away by the support from this community and surprised by how quickly it grew!”
To celebrate the milestone or as a reward to fans, developer GungHo Online Entertainment also announced that players would receive a pair of in-game rewards: 100 Jala, and 10 x Nippon Gum weapon skins. Ofcourse, the news isn’t all that surprising, as the game suffered some major server issues during its launch. A lot of players were trying to get on at the same time! Overall, those numbers are an impressive achievement for the free-to-play game and a good sign for Ninjala’s future.
There’s also the Ninjala Pass, a seasonal pass that rewards you with costumes, emotes, stickers, Ninja Medals, and even more Jala for completing levels. If you manage to reach level 100, you’ll have earned enough free Jala to purchase the next season’s pass.
Players can access Ninjala from the Nintendo eShop with an internet connection and a Nintendo Account. A Nintendo Switch Online subscription is not required to play Ninjala.
