    If you’ve never played the original games, or you’re just a fan of beat ‘em ups in general, I’d absolutely suggest picking up The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors on the platform of your choice. I played through on the Nintendo Switch, which has been an excellent platform for the game, but I’d imagine you’d be fine from a performance perspective on PS4 too. It’s a real gem of a game that’s long been overlooked and is certainly worth your time.

    The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is a refreshing take on a classic game. Its fast paced action and beat ‘em up styles feels like a natural fit on the Nintendo Switch. With its updated graphics, audio, and game modes, it makes this game perfect for a quick fix for action and chaos.

    The Ninja Warriors: Return of the Warriors is for those who love classic arcade or console games. Those players are fine with titles being a bit short, since the replayability comes through in getting better with the game or replaying with friends in tow. It certainly helps that everything from the expanded move set to the character differences and presentation is top-tier, 16-bit stuff and rather straightforward, except for the final boss. As long as you're coming in with a mindset of defeating the game more than once, you'll have a great time with this low-key classic.

    A fantastic blast from the past that remasters a long-forgotten classic that should now be recognised as one of the best scrolling beat ‘em-ups ever.

    Ninja Saviors - Return of the Warrior is a precious walk down memory lane. For players that did not play the original Ninja Warriors title on SNES, the nostalgia effect may not garner the same interest as with others that remember the original title. Still, The Ninja Saviors - Return of the Warrior still applies some present day additions that may keep beat'em up fans interested for many nun-chuck swinging hours.

    The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is that kind of slice of classic cake that brings with it the pros and cons of a bygone era, but at least it’s the kind of game that makes you lust for the nostalgia-tinted days of funnelling coins into an arcade stand and engaging in some cathartic mayhem. Easy to pick up action, retrotastic visuals and a chance to feel like a hero with a power fantasy that works delightfully well on the Nintendo Switch.

    J'adorais déjà la version Super Nintendo et cette version est encore meilleure, un chef d'oeuvre rétro.

Nice graphics and music, 5 playable characters who all play very differently with a surprisingly large range of moves available. It feels satisfying beating up the bad guys and 8 levels seems just the right length. My only criticisms are (1) the final boss fight is frustrating rather than enjoyable, and (2) The price ($30AUD) seems a bit high for the actual time you are likely to spend playing this game. If you are a fan of this series though, you will certainly enjoy The Ninja Saviors. Expand

    Una puesta al dia del clásico Beat'em up de Taito de 1987.
    Esta recreativa ya tuvo una adaptación para la consola Super Nintendo, donde ya en su dia mejoraban gráficos y jugabilidad.

    Esta nueva reimaginación del juego, incorpora graficos mejorados al estilo 16-bits, 2 nuevos personajes, nueva banda sonora y posibilidad de jugar a 2 jugadores en modo local.

    No es un juego recomendable para todo el mundo, pero los amantes del Beat'em up lo disfrutarán muchisimo, sobretodo con los personajes extra, y porque conseguir este juego en Super Nintendo hoy en dia es carísimo.
