More news has arrived worthy of the Day of the Ninja. EA has announced a co-publishing partnership with Nunchuck Games to bring Ninja Reflex, a new action/puzzle party game for the Wii and DS, to North America and Europe in March 2008. As I’m sure you surmised from the title and few early screenshots, Ninja Reflex is a party game built around various martial arts mini-game challenges designed to test your reflexes and hone your ninja skills. Details beyond that are nil at this point, but as soon as more info becomes available I’ll let you know.

“Ninja Reflex channels the accessible multiplayer fun of Wii Sports and the self-improvement aspect of Brain Age into a martial arts universe that is ideally suited for the Wii and Nintendo DS,” said David Luntz, President and CEO of Nunchuck Games. “Nunchuck Games is thrilled to team up with EA Partners to bring Ninja Reflex to gamers everywhere.”

“Ninja Reflex trains players to be better gamers by sharpening their speed and skill, and is exactly the kind of unique concept and creative design that EAP helps bring to market on a global stage,” said David DeMartini, Vice President and General Manager of EA Partners. “EA Partners brings the same publishing resources to bear for up-and-coming partners like Nunchuck Games as it does for legendary teams like Valve and Harmonix, helping foster the independent game development community by giving studios of all sizes a chance to publish their games around the world.”
