Marvelous | London, U.K. – 25 October 2023 – Marvelous Europe today announced Ninja or Die: Shadow of the Sun, the ultrafast roguelite developed by Nao Games, will be available worldwide on the Nintendo Switch™ system this November 1st.
Available for pre-purchase now on the Nintendo eShop with a 10% discount until November 8th and inspired by Japanese folklore, Ninja or Die: Shadow of the Sun invites players to master violent precision platforming in a fusion of extreme speed and one-button controls.
In Ninja or Die: Shadow of the Sun you are a common pickpocket, transformed by the cataclysm into a lethal Ninja with lightning mobility. The Ramen Seller becomes a Samurai. The Maiko becomes a killer Geisha. Your domain of petty crime becomes a frenzied neon world of shogun castles, magic traps and parachuting assassins. Someone has ensnared you in a loop of chaos… if not to kill you, then to protect you from something worse.
Ninja or Die: Shadow of the Sun is available now on Windows PC via Steam and will be coming to the Nintendo Switch system for $14.99 / £13.49 / €14.99 on November 1st.
