This Ninja Is So Powerful He Doesn’t Need To Dress In Black, He Wears Red

Ninjas specialize in stealth, so they typically wear dark colors to hide in the shadows. JaJaMaru-kun disregards this rule because he’s just that badass… or maybe it’s because to the main villain is a catfish pirate. In either case, Ninja JaJaMaru-kun: Princess Sakura and the Secret Dragon is a throwback to side scrolling action games from the NES era.


That’s how long the Ninja JaJaMaru-kun series has been around and in the upcoming 3DS game published by Hamster Ninja JaJaMaru-kun has modern moves. He can wall jump and double jump. and  The red ninja also has a triple stacked shadow clone skill and a cloud to fly on.


Ninja JaJaMaru-kun: Princess Sakura and the Secret Dragon is slated for release on June 20.

      Red > Orange i say!

      if anything its the other way around since this came first and Naruto just left it behind.

    Nowadays, it’s actually harder to find a Ninja wearing black…

    Edit: Even Ryu Hayabusa actually began by wearing blue… Remember in the good ol’ NES days?

  • This looks really cool in concept (love me some retro style games) but I can’t shake off the feeling it has this…RPG Maker/Game Maker feel.
    The backgrounds, sound effects, sprite animations and special effects all seem a tad too generic…
    Though the music is kinda cool and, again, retro style platformers are always welcome.

    Still beats jumping around screaming jutsu outloud in an orange jump suit.

  • Red was actually one of the more primarily used colors, along with the usual black and blue for Shinobi wear, I remember reading somewhere that it blends better in darkness and that it had a psychological effect on their enemies if found during missions. (Since red is associated with blood)

    Remind me of Goemon

  • Леонид Родин

    OMG, Ryu Hayabusa went into hiding!

  • Jesse Torres

    He also Appears in the MMO NosTale

  • Captain Bringdown

    Didn’t Joe Musashi wear white?

  • DenjinJ

    Kinda looks… nothing at all like Jajamaru-kun, not that most will remember it now I guess. I would have been psyched for a reboot of the original, or Ninja-kun. This is just kind of another 2D platformer.
