There is going to be a Ninjala single-player mode for this upcoming free-to-play Nintendo Switch game from GungHo Online, but you're going to have to pay for it.
GameSpot reports that the single-player campaign will be an add-on that players can purchase if they'd prefer to learn more about the world of Ninjala. Players will explore the story through comic book-style panels, playing standalone levels and battling enemies.
The single-player campaign is going to be a premium experience; it won't be included as free content just yet. That said, there will be tangible bonuses for the multiplayer portion of the game should you decide to buy it; these rewards can be used to customize and upgrade your characters as you progress through the game's story mode. One example was Ninja Medals, items that can bee grown into Shinobi Cards and used in the game.
A single-player campaign is not the only new story content on the way, either. A web anime will also be making its debut to explore the background of the game's characters.
"We will gradually release a cartoon-style web anime that will shed light on the background stories of characters that did not appear in the 3D anime," GungHo Online's President explained to GameSpot.
"In the future, we plan to develop several cross-media promotions using various approaches such as 3D animation, cartoon animation, comics, and story mode updates."
When does the Ninjala Single-Player Mode Release?
Several questions remain about this single-player story mode, including how much it will cost and when it will launch. Unfortunately, a launch date wasn't mentioned just yet; it appears that this may be post-launch content. The developers haven't yet decided on a price, either.
In any case, you'll still be able to enjoy the multiplayer portion of the game without spending a penny. Ninjala launches for the Nintendo Switch on June 24, 2020; you can find out more about it at its Nintendo eShop page and ninjalathegame.com.
