Compile Heart announces Switch version of Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars in Japan
Compile Heart has announced that Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars will launch for Nintendo Switch in Japan on March 17, 2022.
The crossover action RPG originally released for PlayStation 4 in September for Japan and in October for North America & Europe.
The Nintendo Switch version will contain a few new elements not present in the released PS4 version, including new difficulty modes, new costumes, and sub-events. Compile Heart specifically states that the costumes are available other versions via DLC, but does not make similar mention about the difficulty modes and sub-events.
The details and a Switch version trailer can be found below.
An English release for the Nintendo Switch port has not been announced.
Update: Idea Factory International has announced an English release for Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars on Switch and Steam.
New Difficulty Modes
- The Switch version will add two new difficulty modes: a hard 'Balikata' difficulty mode where even normal foes will feel like boss encounters, as well as an easy 'Yawayawa' difficulty mode where you'll do massive damage to enemies.
- [Note, balikata (バリカタ) is a term used to describe hard ramen noodles or other objects, and yawayawa (やわやわ) is used to mean softly or carefully, often in the context of bringing in a train to a stop at a station.]
- Eight new costumes will also be added to the Switch version. For other versions, these costumes are available as DLC.
- Sub Events that were added in patches to the PS4 version will be included in the Nintendo Switch version. After clearing the game, three more sub-events have been added to NinChat.
