SEASON 4 DETAILS
GOE also announced Season 4 in a recent Dev Diary. The new season is packed with content and will begin on January 7, 2021 and last until March 24, 2021.
Season 4 includes:
- New stage, Fort Riverdale, is a London-themed ‘nighttime’ stage, the first of its kind. It features a giant clocktower, a gum factory, and a background filled with beautiful city skylines. The stage has more elevation differences than previous maps and features two new gimmicks: the Warp Gate and the Giant Gum Gacha.
- Warp Gate allows players to travel between similarly colored Warp Gates around the stage. Think of it like the Underground, except actually fast.
- Giant Gum Gacha is triggered by pressing a switch, spitting out a piece of gum with a variety of effects. It could increase players’ S-Energy, but watch out! Some gum may even cause damage.
- Two new Katana type weapons, Scrap Saber and Chewing V, cuts ahead of the competition.
- New Ninjutsu, Shinobi Disco, creates a dance field that forces all who enter to bust a move! Other actions will be tough to pull out when boogying to the beat.
- New Special, Froggy Block, summons a box-wall either in front of players as a normal attack or near a targeted opponent as a wide attack.
- Two new Shinobi Cards are ready for play, including Energy Hoarder, which increases the amount of S-Energy recovered when collecting it on the map; and Quick Respawn, which allows players to respawn in place with low health up to three times.
- Other improvements incoming includes decreased time between finding and starting a match, favorites now able to be saved separately, and spectators being able to host a room.
What’s Next for the Ninjala Cartoon Anime and a Partnership with Bandai
The next chapter of the Ninjala cartoon anime is also around the corner, highlighting everyone’s favorite dancing, crime-fighting superstar Emma!
GOE is also partnering with Bandai to release Ninjala Collection Card Vol. 1, collectable cards each depicting a Ninjala character and a Gum Weapon in the United States, France, Spain, Japan, and all throughout Asia.
