Sadly news has emerged that the fun Ninjala has been delayed until 25th June. The news was announced by Gungho Online Entertainment in a press release stating that the reason for the delay is due to the influence of COVID-19. Ninjala is free to play and and was scheduled for release on 28th of May. Here’s the statement that the company has put out this evening.
“GungHo Online Entertainment, Inc. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director, President and CEO: Kazuki Morishita, hereinafter GungHo) is announcing that the release date of the battle ninja gum action game Ninjala for the Nintendo Switch will be postponed from May 28, 2020 to June 25, 2020 (Japan Standard Time) due to the influence of COVID-19.
Ninjala is a battle ninja gum action game where players can enjoy free-roaming 3D action battles in stages that allow for movement in all directions, whether running along walls or fighting in mid-air. Using height differences to their full advantage, players engage in fierce battles using various weapons and powerful ninjutsu techniques.
We are sorry for worrying everyone who look forward to releasing of this title. We continuously prevent the spread of COVID-19 and develop this game”
Didn’t know I could catch it from playing a game digitally
What an ignorant comment. Developers who work on the game and go to an office can spread it. That is what the delay is about.
Yeah that’s true. Besides, they are not working from home.
Boo dee hoo, I guess its hard for some ppl to take a joke… derp. I guess sarcasm doesn’t work digitally as well. Sheesh!
Sure thing ther captain can’t take a got damn joke. Don’t fuck yourself too hard… chode
learn to spell, freak
Hahaha… obviously, this conversation has really affected you. So much so, that you think the mis-spelling of “there” and calling me a “freak” are gonna hurt my gentle disposition? Sorry bub, I’m still just fine and still don’t give a flying fuck.
I’m sure the pandemic has had some effect but wonder if the real reason is that they are responding to feedback from the recent beta and need more time to make some changes.
If that were the case I think they would just say it, especially since, from my perspective, the game does need a bit of polish in regards to the online infrastructure. When I played the beta, it took forever for matches to actually start when a lobby filled up, or the game would sit there for two minutes and just disband the lobby even after it had 8 players.
Hopefully the devs take this time to fix those issues, but I doubt they’re using COVID as an excuse since it has genuinely affected a bunch of other stuff.
