Originally released in 2010, today starts a new journey for the super popular Fruit Ninja game which has attained over 500 million downloads worldwide. In addition, the entire Fruit Ninja brand is going to offer a whole suite of new media content for both old and new players. The classic slicing game available on almost any platform has been rebuilt from scratch. The development team has thrown away the old menu and UI designs, while keeping the steps between playing and equipping new gear are all streamlined.
Before each game, players can equip different Blades and Dojos which were previously cosmetic only. Now with this upcoming update, almost every item will have an unique effect on the gameplay and allow for limitless possibilities. For example, the Great Wave Dojo sporadically spawns ten fruit at once while the Autumn Blade creates a fruit-swirling tornado with every pineapple sliced. Last but certainly not least, players can mix and match their favorite items, and leaderboard entries will display which combination of items were used.
From what we are told, the update is set to release sometime early October across all platforms. As of now though this is all the information we have available, however, we’ll be sure to keep you updated as time progresses.
