Publisher ININ Games announced The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors will launch for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe on August 30. 

View the release trailer below:

Here is an overview of the game:

In The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors, the player assumes the role of one of five android ninjas to take on the tyrant Banglar and his henchmen with a variety of individual moves in a dystopian future. Along with two completely new characters, the fully revised side-scrolling arcade brawler also finally offers fans the eagerly awaited two-player co-op mode and an online ranking system so that you can measure yourself against fighters from all over the world. In a total of 8 levels, players will brawl their way through waves of enemy hordes, either alone or in pairs.

Not only is long-term motivation provided in single-player mode, The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors also makes comfortable couch co-op game evenings with friends possible, just like you remember and love from Super Nintendo classics of the 1990s.

The original developers from back in the day, Tengo Project, have also made an already outstanding game even better audio-visually in every respect. The 16-bit pixel art of the classic has been retained, but significantly revised, and new animations have been added. The legendary sound of Taito’s house band Zunata is, of course, part of the fun once again, and along with the original soundtrack from the arcade machines, there will also be the music from the Super NES version and a completely newly arranged soundtrack on offer.

The reboot of The Ninja Warriors marks the kick-off of more releases of old and new IPs with which the pioneer of the Japanese video game industry, Taito Corporation, will return to the western console market after around a decade.

Oh, man, why did it have to launch in that time frame? I'll likely be busy with Astral Chain, but I may spare an hour or two to go through the campaign.
