In The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors, you 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 improved the audio-visuals in every respect, making an already outstanding game even better!

Along with 2-player co-op play, 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 ZUNTATA 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. TAITO’s latest arcade action masterpiece also includes an online ranking system so that you can compare your skills to fighters from all over the world.


The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is scheduled for launch on August 30 for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Europe and on Oct. 15, 2019 in North America.

The game was originally planned to be released simultaneously in both markets. The reason for the short-term postponement in North America are unforeseen logistical challenges, which could not be solved in time despite intensive efforts. ININ would like to apologize formally to the many fans who are already eagerly waiting to play this masterpiece. As small compensation for a longer wait time, the physical release will contain some extra items that will be revealed later.

There is more good news: The game will be released as a completely uncut experience in Europe and the US, including the option to change the color of the hit effects to red. It will also include enemies which were not included in the Western Super Nintendo version at that time. An extensive insight into the features and characters is provided by the six-minute XXL trailer which was released today.

The fully revised side-scrolling arcade brawler The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors features a strong cast of five playable characters and a plethora of individual moves, with two completely new faces joining the team: The small woman-shaped android Yaksha, with telescopic arms performing unpredictable moves and Raiden, a colossal android weighing a whopping 32000 kilograms / 70548 lbs.

Armed with diamond sharp steel, the Ninjas turn their bodies into raging cyclones – leaping, kicking, and slashing through wave after wave of enemies. Over a total of eight levels, you’ll take on the tyrant Banglar and his henchmen either alone or with a friend. So settle in for a night on the couch with your friends, and reminisce about the golden era of 90s co-op game evenings you know and love.

  • YAKSHA (NEW)

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.

Each physical copy will contain a poster, a sticker set and a manual, just like back in the 1990s.
