Ninjala's giant 2.0 update enhances matchmaking, gameplay polish and aesthetics

August 11, 2020 1 min read

This week's massive new Ninjala patch addresses pretty much every facet of the game, and it needed it.

Although I've dabbled in Ninjala on Switch every so often, the launch was pretty rough at times, so any updates are like a siren's call; beckoning me back. "Version 2.0" has come nearly two months after the game debuted on Switch, and according to Gungho, there are three tenets it addresses: "Offer an ideal matching environment - Improving player experience through UI/UX - Further polish game balance."

The former is thankfully a "go big or go home" approach, as the studio has opened up worldwide matchmaking "due to player feedback." So queue times should go down significantly and you can play with friends in other regions. Gungho warns us of potential lag, however.

In terms of raw mechanics, several weapons have been adjusted (mostly buffed so items feel more impactful). The UI has also been improved, which extends to an on-screen parry guide for more transparency when fighting. On a macro level, main menus have been smoothed over and now offer more information at a glance. That's enough for me to try it again! You can find the highlights below.
