In the fast-paced world of conveyor-belt sushi fighting, match colored plates and types of sushi to hurl tall stacks of plates at your opponent.

The more matches you make, the taller the plate stack and the stronger your attacks will be. Defend your homeland from invading enemies in this puzzling action game so more people can enjoy delicious sushi in peace. May the best sushi samurai reign supreme!

The action puzzle game finds players devouring conveyor-belt sushi, matching plates and then throwing them to defeat enemies. The basics are simple, but the gameplay is deep … and tasty! In the game’s multiplayer mode, players can even compete locally or online against other players in intense matches.

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido combines bright, anime art style with frenetic yet tactical gameplay – centered on consuming as much sushi as possible – delivering a veritable conveyor belt loaded with surprise and delight.

Imagine a world in which the sinister Empire controls the consumption of sushi with an iron grip and denies any mention of it to all inhabitants of the vanquished Republic. Players assume the role of orphaned hero Musashi (playable as either a male or a female avatar), embarking on a grand adventure to restore sushi to the world. Meet a colorful cast of characters along the way, including treacherous local bully Kojiro, musclebound Imperial enforcer General Kodiak and beautiful sushi assassin Celia.

Battles are contested between two opponents, each with access to three of their own conveyor belts of sushi, plus a seventh shared belt in the middle. By linking (aka eating) sushi plates of the same color, players create stacks that can then be hurled at their opponent. The frenetic sushi-eating action is coupled with significant tactical depth. Players will encounter divine beings, called Sushi Sprites, which provide special skills that can be chained together in battle for a variety of powerful combos. There are more than 50 Sushi Sprites to befriend, many of which can evolve into more powerful forms.

In addition to the rich and wacky single-player adventure, two players can challenge each other to local multiplayer battles on a single Nintendo Switch system. With the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, players can battle locally with their own systems and games.

“This wonderfully clever game is sure to work up an appetite for fans of frenetic action-puzzle games,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With a simultaneous launch on Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS, fans can enjoy a veritable buffet of sushi anytime, anywhere.”

In the Nintendo 3DS version (only playable in 2D), the action is split between the two screens, with the ability to use the stylus to control the action. Touch controls can also be used while playing in Handheld mode on Nintendo Switch. Both versions also allow for local or online multiplayer. Two players who each own the game and a Nintendo 3DS family system can battle each other locally, while two people can each use a single Joy-Con controller to compete on the same screen when playing on Nintendo Switch. They can also battle each other locally if they each have their own game and Nintendo Switch system.

Key Features:

  • Use the touchscreen to match plates of sushi and rack up tall stacks.
  • Connecting same-colored plates and building combos results in more and more plates stacking up, which results in stronger attacks.
  • Match plate patterns for a higher bonus. The fancier the sushi on the plate, the stronger the plate.
  • Toss plate stacks at your opponent to deal crushing blows.
  • The last sushi samurai standing wins

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido is currently available on Switch ($49.99) and 3DS ($39.99).
