Ninjin: Clash of Carrots, a non-stop beat em’ up action game by Pocket Tap, has been announced for Nintendo Switch. Due to release on September 4th 2018, the game will be priced at $14.99 / £11.99 on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Inspired by the Japanese Feudal era, Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a humorous side-scrolling brawler, in which players control either a ninja rabbit called Ninjin or his fox counterpart Akai. The aim of the game is to recover as many of your villages stolen carrots as possible from an enemy known as Shogun Moe.

NINJIN Clash of Carrots ScreenshotStory mode can either be played in single-player or with a friend through both online and local co-op. Players can also upgrade their weapons, equipment, and customise their characters by trading in carrots at two of the in-game shops (I thought they were supposed to be bringing them back to the village?).

Standard story mode aside, Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is also set to include a survival mode called “Oni TV Show”, unlockable boss rush mode, and special bonus objectives. Oni TV Show will see player pit against infinite waves of enemies to earn special rewards, and like story mode, will also available to play in single player or as a multiplayer experience.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots was developed by Pocket Tap (an independent studio based in Brasil) and appears to be a hugely improved follow up to their award winning 2013 iOS game (simply title “NINJIN”). Ninjin: Clash of Carrots will release on September 4th 2018 and is being published by Modus Games.
