Ninja Senki DX will be available on February 23 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, complete with cross-buy, in North America and Europe, Tribute Games announced today.

Priced at $4.99, Ninja Senki DX features 8-bit platforming, stories told in a five-second intro cutscene, man-sized shurikens, enemies bumping you into bottomless pits, split-second decision making, and another playable character called Musashi, who you’ll have to unlock.

First released as Ninja Senki in 2010, Tribute Games President Jonathan Lavigne talked about what’s new in Ninja Senki DX:

Ninja Senki celebrates its 5th anniversary. For us at Tribute Games, it also means that we’ve been in business for nearly 5 years and therefore, celebrations are coming soon! For you, it means an updated, tightened DX version which includes a remixed soundtrack, a new challenge mode, secret game modes, Trophies, refreshed menus, and a few redrawn enemy sprites.

Since the original Ninja Senki came out in 2010, fans have been asking for both a console and a portable version. It made total sense because after all, Ninja Senki plays like a console game and bears the screen resolution and graphical style of a retro portable game.

Ninja Senki DX won’t include a Platinum trophy.

Lavigne also talked about the Vita version of Mercenary Kings, saying, “We are working on making that happen, but we don’t know when it will happen!”
