The Ninja Warriors: Once Again launches for PS4, Switch in July in Japan

PlayStation 4 version newly announced.

The Ninja Warriors: Once Again, which was previously only announced for Switch, will launch for both Switch and PlayStation 4 in July in Japan, publisher Taito and developer Natsume Atari announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via the Taito official website:

What is The Ninja Warriors: Once Again?

Based on the 1994-released The Ninja Warriors: Again, which is a Super Famicom arrangement of the 1987-released arcade game The Ninja Warriors, The Ninja Warriors: Once Again is a 25-year-later remake from the Tengo Project main staff that brought you the original games. While retaining its 16-bit style, The Ninja Warriors: Once Again significantly enhances the character resolution, pattern amount, and more to match the latest hardware. In addition to two new playable characters, The Ninja Warriors: Once Again implements a two-player co-op mode that was not available in The Ninja Warriors: Again.
