GungHo Online Entertainment has announced the airing schedule and release platform of the upcoming anime series based on their hit free-to-play online multiplayer action game Ninjala. A new episode will air every Thursday at 7:00 PM (PST) via the PlayNinjala YouTube channel, with the series premiere set for this week, 13th January 2022. Unfortunately, you will only have 7 days to watch each episode, as the previous episode will be promptly unavailable as soon as a new one arrives. It’s unknown if there will be future methods of watching the series, at least for free.
Ninjala is available now via the Nintendo Switch eShop, with over 8 million downloads worldwide. Check out a plot summary of the anime adaptation below, and make sure to tune in.
