Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Legendary Digital are converting iPhone and iPod touch users’ fingers into deadly chain blades, razor-sharp shurikens, and lethal katanas in Ninja Assassin, a brutal, action-packed game unleashed today — all for just 99 cents!
Ninja Assassin is a stealthy side scrolling hack ‘n slash action game featuring an innovative touch-based, gesture control scheme. The player controls a single combatant against a number of different mobs and bosses identical to the primary enemies found in the Ninja Assassin movie. The gameplay is intense, yet intuitive, while the gesture system allows the player to pull off stunning attacks that provide rich, over-the-top visuals along with a feeling of empowerment.
Due to the graphic nature of the app, Ninja Assassin is intended for mature audiences 17 years of age and older.
The game follows Raizo, one of the deadliest assassins in the world, after he was taken from the streets as a child and transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth. Haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free and vanishes. Now he waits in the shadows, preparing to exact his revenge.
Ninja Assassin’s story mode is designed around the film narrative and organized into four acts. In addition to story mode, players can experience the ultimate challenge of “survival mode” where they must outlast wave after wave of enemies. Players can then upload and share their high scores online within the game or post to their Facebook page for the world to see.
The game features are as follows:
Ninja Assassin (review here) stars Rain and Naomie Harris, was directed by James McTeigue, and was produced by Joel Silver and the Wachowski brothers. Ninja Assassin is available on Blu-ray™, DVD, On Demand and Download March 16, 2010!
