The Wii excels at mini-games or anything that involves waving your arms around. With that in mind, EA has announced their latest title called Ninja Reflex which is essentially a series of martial arts mini-games designed to test reflexes and reaction times. Being martial arts based, gamers will have to earn their martial arts honours and reach black belt status which is dished out by your own personal sensei. Multiplayer battles are also thrown in for good measure.

“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.”
The game will be released next March and is being developed by Sanzaru Games and co-published by Nunchuck Games/EA.
