Moon Diver Ninja Flips On To PlayStation Network On March 29

By Spencer . March 15, 2011 . 11:14pm

moondStrider co-designer and Osman creator Kouichi Yotsui has been working on a multiplayer ninja game called Moon Diver. The Square Enix developed title has an odd bunch of ninja. There’s a kid demon king, a boy with bat-like wings who grew up in a mafia town, and a Stanford college student. OK…!


Each character has a different move set and working together players can finish enemies off with Moonsault combos. Stick to single player and Yotsui promises Moon Diver will be challenging. Yotsui said in an interview, "The single-player mode is serious business. I have no intention of letting anyone escape with their lives. ‘It’s a good game to die!!!’”


Moon Diver will be available on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. PlayStation 3 owners get the game first, though. Moon Diver will be available on March 29 via PSN. A release date has not been announced for Xbox 360 other than a vague "coming soon" timeframe.

  • Between this and Hard Corps: Uprising, I’m in platformer heaven :D (Though I’d love to see a new Megaman X in this style ;) )

    • PFFT! More like Megaman ZX Gaiden or something. Whichever comes first, give me Megaman Online or Megaman X9 and I’ll be happy. Right now, I’m down with Moon Driver. :D

      • PrinceHeir

        yes Megaman X9 or another Megaman in the same vein as X4-X6.

        i also want a new Strider, Metal Slug, Contra, Castlevania, Sins and Punishment and Muramasa ALL in 2D please :P

        • Kris

          Sin and Punishment… 2D?
          Maybe try Noitu Love 2 or some of the 360’s many shmups.

    • Code

      rar, man same here, Hard Corps: Uprising has been my game of like the month plus >ww<;; Although I'll have to settle on which system to get Moon Diver on opo;

  • RagnaXBL

    Hard corps uprising on now PSN will get this as well can’t wait.

  • I was hoping it would be released at a later date, possibly summer since I’m busy with my PSP and I spent my Xbox points for Beyond Good and Evil HD. Oh well.

  • Advent_Andaryu

    Whao! The PS3 getting a downloadable game before the 360? That’s unheard of!

  • PrinceHeir

    Hard Crops, Parasite Eve I(and II in a later date) and now this? i love the whole digital market. playing old and new games in a steady price :)

    2D games FTW :P

  • Why does every game dev seems to want to kill their players? Do they have a personal grudge against us? ;__; I suck in hard games

    • z_merquise

      It’s the way of the old-school ninja.

    • raymk

      yeah like Ashgail said its the way of the old school games. A lot of games back then are harder than things I play now, Oh and its the way of the old school ninja.

      • My gaming life started with the SNES, so I have no idea how the NES treat seasoned gamers… I like a challenge, but I hate cheap shots ;__; Something like DMC is preferable for me.

  • “The single-player mode is serious business. I have no intention of letting anyone escape with their lives. ‘It’s a good game to die!!!'”

    …So I guess I’ll be avoiding single player then. I like a good challenege but also one where I don’t have to risk my life.

    • raymk

      lol come on man give it a go =D. Its like playing contra on very hard to try and not die on very hard. Remember they said you can change the difficulty.

  • …Ermm, US psn? o.o

  • Why does Ragna have glasses now?

  • z_merquise

    Lot’s of good stuff coming out! First Hard Corps, Castlevania story DLC then this game. And after few days, there’s Arcana Heart 3. Man, I really need to buy another PSN card.

  • vrakanox

    Got Hard Corps yesterday, equally psyched for this one.

  • Ugh, 3DS+Ghost Recon/Street Fighter, Sora no Kiseki, and now this?

    It’s a bad day to be my wallet

  • capristrider

    My most wanted game on PSN so far! Glad you mentioned Osman/Cannon Dancer, that was a awesome game too!
