Speedy Ninja puts a unique spin on the endless runner genre with an Asian-inspired art style combined with character customization, combat, and online competitive mechanics. The fast, acrobatic adventure features a robust leaderboard players can climb by completing daily missions. The colorful cast of characters, customizable battle gear, and mythical monsters transcend the classic endless runner model to create an imaginative, strategic environment.
“The launch of Speedy Ninja is an incredible milestone for NetEase, delivering on our promise to serve the West with our first mobile game offering,” said General Manager of NetEase North America, David Ting. “By adapting a successful Asian title for Western audiences from the ground up, Speedy Ninja showcases NetEase’s global appeal. I am confident that players will love the game.”
