After completing a mission you will see the screen below.
From best to worst
You will notice that while performing combos occasionally a Green hoop effect(see left square inside image below) will expand from where you hit the target. This will allow you to perform the chase attack(飛翔乱舞). By pressing Circle the moment you see the effect you will be able to jump after the target. You can then continue your combo in the air. This can be performed no matter which way you are facing and if the current target dies will jump to the next nearest target. The 閃 elemental path allows you to continue dashing after your target ad-infinitum.
Green hoop effect(Left)
Air Dash 飛翔乱舞
The players/enemy's clothes can be destroyed in two ways, taking damage and being hit by the enemy's super(ninpo). Over time as you lose more and more HP your clothes will get ripped down to different levels. The difference when being hit by a super is that depending on the level of the attack either the top or botton half of the character is instantly destroyed.
- Level 1 super(L1 + Square) - Destroys 1 level of the bottom half of the target's clothes
- Level 2 super(L1 + Triangle) - Destroys 1 level of the top half of the target's clothes
- Level 3 super(L1 + Circle) - Destroys 1 level of both the top and bottom halves of the target's clothes
Depending on your play style you will have three elemental paths to level up your character with.
At each line in the bar you will unlock a new skill

By pressing down on the d-pad you can instantly knock back all enemies at the cost of 10% of your HP. This can be used at all times e.g while frozen.
- Lock onto enemies by tapping the front touchscreen. If a boss is present one tap will lockon to the nearest boss. If there isn't a boss onscreen then one tap will lockon to the nearest target.
- Parrying - Successful parries grant a boost to the ninja gauge as well as knocking back whoever hit you and completely avoiding damage. You can parry from all sides. Press R1(guard) right before an attack hits you and you will hear and see a sound effect when it is successful.
Lockon (Blue marker)
In order to use the server browser and play online(infrastructure) you will need the online pass. If you are buying the game new(physical) you will find the online pass on the inside cover of the game. If you are buying this game through the PSN store then the pass will be included with the game. Note: If you are importing the physical copy to play with a non Japanese/Asian PSN account then you will not be able to play online. The online pass counts as a DLC code and will only work with the same region of the game it came from.
Local play does not require an online pass. Here you can play with friends nearby with Vitas or create your own room and play with bots.
