In Ninja or Die: Shadow of the Sun you are a common pickpocket, transformed by the cataclysm into a lethal Ninja with lightning mobility. The Ramen Seller becomes a Samurai. The Maiko becomes a killer Geisha. Your domain of petty crime becomes a frenzied neon world of shogun castles, magic traps and parachuting assassins. Someone has ensnared you in a loop of chaos… if not to kill you, then to protect you from something worse.

Set at the heart of a cataclysmic event in Edo Japan, Ninja or Die: Shadow of the Sun is an ultrafast roguelite inspired by Japanese folklore where you must master violent precision platforming in this fusion of extreme speed and one-button controls that will leave you dead and wanting more.

Ninja or Die: Shadow of the Sun is set to launch on Windows PC via Steam on the August 2, 2023. For more information follow solo developer, Nao Games on Twitter @nao_peca or wishlist it on Steam here.
