The Ninja Warriors: Once Again coming west [Update]

Western release published by German company United Games.

The Ninja Warriors: Once Again

The Ninja Warriors: Once Again is coming to North America and Europe via German publisher United Games, the company announced.

United Games did not announce platforms, a release date, or an official western title for the game (other than “a new Ninja Warriors title”). In Japan the game is known as The Ninja Warriors: Once Again, and in Asia it is known as The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors. It is due out in both territories for PlayStation 4 and Switch in July.

In North America and Europe, The Ninja Warriors: Once Again will be distributed both physically and digitally. In addition to a traditional retail version distributed by newly founded publishing label ININ, a limited physical edition marketed through Strictly Limited Games as limited editions will also be available.

“We are proud to work together with Taito Corporation, which has been a legend in the Japanese game industry for many years,” said United Games CEO Helmut Schmitz in a press release. “We look forward to and are convinced that this cooperation will be a great success.”

Update 06/20/19 at 4:02 a.m.: A rating from the Entertainment Software Rating Board has confirmed it will be titled The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors, and that it will release for PlayStation 4 and Switch. Here is the ESRB’s description:

This is an arcade-style action game in which players control one of five ninja androids through missions to overthrow the government. Players traverse side-scrolling levels and use punches and weapons (e.g., blades, kunai, nunchucks) to battle soldiers and enemy ninjas in constant combat. Battles are highlighted by cries of pain, explosions, and screen-shaking effects. Red blood-splatter effects occur when enemy characters are hit. Some female ninjas are depicted with jiggling breasts; a handful of enemies wear outfits that partially expose the sides of their breasts.
