Developer Pocket Trap has announced Ninjin: Clash of Carrots, an anime-inspired retro side-scroller beat-’em-up that is nothing but a non-stop sword swinging, projectile-throwing action fest. Set to launch on all consoles and PC, the newest title from the developer has you play a ninja in feudal Japan, with a welcoming lighter tone!
You play as Ninjin, a ninja rabbit, or his companion fox named Akai. The story begins with a quest to recover your village’s stolen carrots from the evil Shogun Moe. You will battle his endless minions in the fight to help save your village.
The currency is carrots, dropped on the ground from your beaten enemies; they come in all shapes and sizes. Every stage you win or lose you will keep your carrots. Use them to go to the Corgi Shop that features over 150 weapons, projectiles, and swords. These different weapons come in handy when battling different combinations of foes, some work better with short range weapons, some are better with long range. You can customize your character to fit your particular playing style.
One of the key features for replay value is a survival mode called the Oni TV Show. It places you on a path to fight an endless wave of enemies that you have encountered in the game so far. You can rack up more carrots and other rewards from this mode. The longer you survive, the better the rewards.
Don’t forget to invite your friends over for 2-player local and online co-op. Co-op mode allows for players to play through the story mode as well as the survival mode Oni TV Show.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is rated E 10+ and will be available on September 4, 2018, for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
