'Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars' Details Battle System, Heartland Characters - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 7, 2021 @ 6:24 p.m. PDT

Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars is a crossover action RPG where, once enemies, the nations of Heartland and Marveland must forces to defeat the invading mechanical ninja army!

Gamninjustri – a place where all manner of ninjas gather.

As the struggle for control increased between the Daimyos of the nations, tensions rose between the two great nations, each of which was home to one of the major schools of martial arts.

The Compa Style which has mastered the Ninja Arts based on the Command Technique. The Honeypa Style which has mastered the Ninja Arts rooted in the Action Technique.

The two camps were stuck in a ruthless competition of skill in order to achieve hegemony, but as they fought on, a mysterious army of mechanical ninjas made their assault.

The mechanical ninja army overran the smaller nations in an instant, and the Steeme Legion leader, Yoh Gamer, made an announcement to the world: “The Super NINJA War to decide the world's strongest school is about to begin!”


Battle System:

Ninja Art Skills and Ninja Art Triggers

Ninja Art Skills are activated via the Stamina Gauge! Because the screen slows while you select a skill in-battle, you can calmly and conveniently select the skill you'd like to use with ease. Assign your favorite skills to any of the face buttons.

By executing a new Ninja Art Skill in a way that chains it to the previous skill, you will activate the Ninja Art Trigger chain effect, which will amplify the effects of Ninja Art Skills!

It's possible to chain [First] → [2nd] → [3rd] → [End] for a total of 4 stages, so try unleashing skills in succession!

Shinobi Extreme

Shinobi Extreme is a special attack you can activate when your EX Gauge is at max!

You can deal massive damage to your enemies, along with a flashy cut-in effect!

Fuurinkazan Drive

Fuurinkazan Drive is an awakened mode that you can activate at any time.

It gives you various benefits, depending on the battle-type (Wind, Forest, Fire, Mountain), for a brief time when activated!

You have a set amount of times you can activate it during one dungeon, so make sure you keep an eye on things during battle. Use it when you need to!
