Ninjala delayed to June 24

No longer due out on May 27.


GungHo Online Entertainment has delayed free-to-play “Ninja Gum battle action” game Ninjala from its previously planned May 27 release date to June 24 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Ninjala is near completion, but we are significantly limited in how quickly we can work to test and finalize the game when we cannot be in the same room,” said GungHo Online Entertainment president and CEO Kazuki Morishita in a press release. “Although we are working hard to launch Ninjala and release it to our fans, the health and safety of our employees is paramount. We apologize to our Ninjala fans who were eagerly anticipating its launch, and we ask for your understanding as we work to bring you the best game we can in this additional month.”
