No more Pussy footing around for Nordcurrent…..

10th August 2009

European publisher Nordcurrent have just announced their latest title for Wii and DS, Ninja Captains. Running from bulls in Spain, gondola racing in Venice, sledding down icy mountains in Antarctica, and battling a giant robotic mouse in New York are just some of the zany activities you perform in this hilarious party game.

The game not only offers 20 unique games that are both fun and challenging, but the Wii version also lets up to 4 players join the action and compete for high score supremacy. Top this off with a quirky sense of humour and a plot that revolves around a team of clumsy ninja cats accidentally travelling the world instead of saving their hometown from a terrifying mouse menace, and you’ve got a sure-fire hit with both friends and family!

Each game takes you to a different world famous city, playing on comical stereotypes to ensure the challenges you face are constantly new and exciting. Cities you visit include London, Sydney, Paris, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro and many others. The gameplay is varied and exercises your speed, timing and coordination as you are called upon to perform activities that range from racing to climbing, balancing, dodging, dancing, and even surfing! The colourful and loveably awkward‘heroes’ will draw you in even further with their epic mission that provides the perfect back-story to a journey that spans across every continent before ending up back in downtown New York for the final showdown with a massive robotic mouse bent on destroying the city.

The combination of wacky humour, addictive gameplay and exotic locations makes Ninja Captains a must-play title this year for anyone who owns a Wii or DS... Don’t miss out!
