Game Systems

Air Dash

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.

Clothes Destruction

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

Damaged clothing

Elemental Paths

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

Elements (飛鳥/Asuka)

閃 Flash - This is the standard form your character is in when you start combat(school uniform).


  • 20% - Short dash strengthened(more invincible frames)
  • 40% - Parry window increase
  • 60% - More money/gold after battle
  • 80% - Stronger guard
  • 100% - Infinite air dash + 50% more atk and def

陽 Light - You gain experience down this path by first pressing L1 and transforming into your ninja state. 


  • 20% - Short dash strengthened + can air dash 5 more times before falling.
  • 40% - Health gauge auto refills
  • 60% - Ninja gauge auto refills
  • 80% - The amount of ninja gauge gained from attacking increased
  • 100% - Hyper armor (don't flinch when hit) + Damage dealt/Defense while in this form increased from 50% to 100% (double damage, double defense)

陰 Shadow - You gain experience down this path by first pressing R1, using your fingers starting close together near the middle of the screen and swiping outwards(Essentially ripping your clothes off).

命駆-Sudden Death mode


  • 20% - Short dash strengthened + can air dash 3 more times before falling.
  • 40% - The time before the combo counter resets is increased
  • 60% - When you taunt ninja gauge fills up a little
  • 80% - When you taunt your HP fills up a little
  • 100% - The amount of health lost when using Limit break is reduced. Damage dealt while in this form increased to 200%. Defense lowered to 20% of normal (You will take more damage than before this upgrade)

Limit break

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.

Limit break


  • 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.
