Highly Challenging Mobile Game Based on Popular TV Program Where Contestants Race through Insane Obstacle Courses
Torrance, Calif., (May 30, 2013) – Marvelous USA, the US-based game publishing operation of leading Japanese game publisher MarvelousAQL, today announced the release of the race-to-the finish platform game, Ninja Warrior Game, co-developed and officially approved by MarvelousAQL Group and Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, Inc, for Android, iOS, and Kindle Fire. Now available for $1.99 on the iTunes App Store, Google Play Store, and Kindle Fire, the title is based on the hit TV series, Ninja Warrior®, which was born from the long running TV series Sasuke in Japan. As in the popular sports entertainment show, players will run, jump, and slide through insane obstacles and challenging courses that will test their mettle at every turn.
In the intensely competitive game, players will create a challenger, train up skills, and compete in a side-scrolling platformer where every level is a brutal race to the finish. Ninja Warrior Game competitors will need every advantage to make it through the challenging courses using swipes and gestures to control their athlete. Fortunately, they can customize their character with a variety of clothing and power-ups, unlocking better gear as they progress. Twenty creatively twisted courses, including four Mt. Midoriyama bonus levels, require different skills to complete in the allotted time. The faster the player reaches the finish line, the more they can earn in both rewards and recognition.
“Ninja Warrior Game will put players’ platform racing game skills to the ultimate test,” said Takuo Tanimoto, Executive Producer and Senior Overseas Manager at MarvelousAQL. “As in the TV show, only the fastest, strongest and smartest contestants will run, slide and jump through challenging obstacle courses with the speed needed to become the ultimate Ninja Warrior champion.”
Players can hone their skills with training levels that range from forest to desert environments. Each trial teaches valuable lessons that will help prepare for future challenges. Contestants can climb the leaderboards and compete for top honors and cool prizes. Frequent competitions will be held to offer players a chance to win a share of exciting prize pools. Players can also gather friends to form an exclusive Dojo that grants special privileges such as group chat and access to weekly Dojo competitions that offer unique rewards and other incentives. With a wealth of options and features, players can dive deeply into the game—or just concentrate on their racing skills. If you think you have what it takes, fight your way to the top to claim the title of Ninja Warrior!
