One other forgotten Neo Geo fighter returns with SNK’s Ninja Grasp’s
SNK actually went into overkill with their preventing titles within the ’90s. Do not get me unsuitable, I really like Samurai Shodown and Deadly Fury et al, with King of Fighters being in my prime 5 franchises of all time, however the developer/writer’s love affair with one-on-one fighters led to the corporate ripping itself off repeatedly with titles which are barely memorable right now
Living proof, Ninja Grasp’s, which has been re-released by the excellent retro-fans at Hamster. Developed by ADK and launched to arcades and the Neo Geo format in 1996, Ninja Grasp’s Scrolls of the Supreme Ninja Arts (to provide it its full title) is one other feudal Japan weapon fighter, full of bloody mayhem and flashy tremendous strikes.
It strikes fairly easily, it has nice pixel graphics and there is nothing unsuitable with the gameplay per se, however Ninja Grasp’s, like so many of those forgotten Neo Geo fighters, simply does not carry something to the desk that wasn’t being accomplished elsewhere and higher. Characters, levels and strikes are all spinoff of each SNK’s different fighters and preventing video games normally. In such a closely contested market, additional focus ought to have been positioned on the manufacturers that have been promoting, somewhat than dropping yen on a glut of interchangeable copy/paste fighters that in the end went nowhere.
For preventing recreation and SNK completionists, Ninja Grasp’s is out there to obtain now on PS4 in Japan and Xbox One and Nintendo Change worldwide.
