Recommended Videos


Another indie game is heading to the Nintendo Switch. Ninja Shodown has a North American release date. It will debut on the eShop on October 5, 2017, giving people another competitive or cooperative game to play for $14.95. This comes about one week after the game’s PC debut on September 26, 2017.


In Ninja Shodown, players control ninjas from the Viper Clan. The Jade Katana, the clan’s treasure, has been taken. It is up to people to use any means necessary, such as bazookas, bombs, katanas, and shuriken, to reclaim the treasure either alone or with friends on five different maps. Up to four people can play. There are six modes: Arcade, Battle, Coin, Crown, Infinite, and Last Ninja.  


Ninja Shodown is immediately available for PCs.
