Nintendo 3DS, Meet the Cubic Ninja


Between four confirmed games for launch day and another four due out within the ‘launch window’, totaling eight altogether, Ubisoft is attacking the Nintendo 3DS harder than any other publisher — even Nintendo! Now Ubisoft is looking forward to the post launch season, starting with an original new IP titled Cubic Ninja.

Cubic Ninja is a sideways action game in which you will guide the cubic ninja named CC through over 100 stages filled with traps and obstacles and enemies, oh my!

The twist is that you’ll roll little CC along on his quest to rescue the princess by tilting and turning the 3DS itself, the handheld’s gyroscope translating these movements into a means to get your cubic ninja tumbling until he’s dizzy. Of course, if you aren’t into system tilting, you can always control CC more traditionally by using the Circle Pad.

Slated for a summertime debut, Cubic Ninja will feature over 100 single player missions, shareable ghost replay data to challenge friends into besting your zippiest speed runs, and a level editor for creating custom stages which can be shared globally via QR Codes.

Consider my interest piqued!
