Mini Ninjas—an endless runner ninja game from Square Enix—received its first content update late last week. You can now have animal companions which help you run further, defeat more enemies, and gain more coins.
Three animals are available in the in-game Dojo shop, each with its own unique abilities:
- The Panda — Powerful and wise, the Panda possesses strength like no other. With the Panda on your side, enemies pose no threat. The Panda is invincible to any foe, able to knock any aside with ease.
- The Fox — Agile and swift, the Fox’s dexterity is unmatched. When speeding through levels the Fox is able to avoid enemies completely with his double jump, pouncing out of danger and grabbing the hardest to reach rewards!
- The Crane — Graceful but deadly, the Crane offers devastating aerial abilities to vanquish foes. No longer will flying enemies catch players out: the Crane is able to leap and attack even the highest baddies from above.
This is just the first of many updates Mini Ninjas will be getting.
Mini Ninjas is available at the App Store for the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and iPad mini running iOS 5.1 or later for $0.99.
