Working your way through Bot Gaiden, taking on the role of a ninjabot intent on saving the world from all evil, you’ll need to be in mind of a few things – action, execution and, mostly importantly, speed.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch, Bot Gaiden is the latest from the Eastasiasoft team as they provide players with the opportunity to prove themselves in the battle against the evil Hench-bots.
See, it’s these guys who have stolen the all-important power skulls; sources of power so immense that only the ninjabots – Robyu and Bytron – should have access to them. You’ll need to get them back – but you’ll need to do so, fast.
In Bot Gaiden the longer you take, the stronger your enemies become and so you’ll need to be shift in your actions, executing those who go up against you in the fastest manner possible. Slicing and dicing is the name of the game here, as is discovering the most time efficient way to conquer each stage.
But this isn’t just a single player runthrough as Bot Gaiden urges players to team up locally, working cooperative actions in order to beat back all. We’re pretty sure that clever team players will find themselves sailing through the various difficulty levels and big bosses that are on show.
The key features of Bot Gaiden as a whole include:
- Run, jump and slash through challenging hand-crafted stages!
- Choose between casual, normal, hardcore and ludicrous difficulty settings.
- Defeat bosses to earn their rewards in any order!
- Team up for fast-paced local cooperative action.
- Discover unlockables in an addictive gameplay cycle.
- Earn gold rewards to survive the endgame gauntlet!
