Naughty ninjas nearing Nintendo
[Update: Idea Factory International has confirmed that Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars is coming to Switch and PC in the west spring 2022. A Limited Edition is now are now available to pre-order from the IF Store.]
Compile Heart has officially announced that its crossover anime adventure Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars is to receive a Nintendo Switch port, following on from its previous release on PS4 earlier this year. The Switch edition of the cheesecake action title will launch in Japan in March of 2022. A western localization is expected, but was not announced.
Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars sees the two hugely popular multimedia franchises clash in a tongue-in-cheek duel over the franchise’s competing combat styles. Neptunia’s “Compa” (after developer Compile Heart) takes on Senran Kagura’s “Honeypa” (after developer Honey Parade) as the denizens of Heartland and Marveland collide in an intense, violent, and very, very silly action-RPG. Obviously, the two brands are practically made for each other, each sporting its own roster of loud, adventurous characters and wild, slapstick humor. Frankly, it’s surprising it has taken this long for the brands to meet.
The Nintendo Switch port of Ninja Wars will include all of the content of the original PS4 release, but will also boast additional sub-quests, an “Extremely Hard” difficulty option, and a selection of previously released DLC character skins. Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars will launch in Japan on Nintendo Switch March 17, 2022. It is available worldwide right now on PS4.
