Ninjala Is Out Now For Free On Nintendo Switch

The multiplayer-focused action game won't require a Nintendo Online subscription either.


Ninjala, the free-to-play melee action game from Let It Die developer GungHo Online, is out now exclusively on Nintendo Switch. You can find it on the Eshop, but servers will only go live later today.

Ninjala is a primarily multiplayer-focused action game, with a style that should make Splatoon players feel welcome. It features two modes: 4v4 PvP matches and a free-for-all eight player battle royale. You'll unlock new gear and weapons as in-game seasons progress, as well as Shinobi cards that reward you with passive buffs. You also won't require Nintendo Online to play with other players.

Now Playing: Ninjala - Exclusive Story Mode Gameplay Trailer

Along with multiplayer, Ninjala will feature an evolving single-player campaign. The story is told through comic book panels, and accompanied by an anime series online that will flesh out some of its characters more over time. The campaign will also feature various types of campaign missions, included stealth-focused ones and large boss fights. Additional story missions will also be part of seasonal content, and added to over time.

Ninjala's servers are set to go live at 7 PM PT/ 10 PM ET, but you can be ready for them by downloading the game now for free. Here's to hoping it goes more smoothly than the game's most recent open beta.
