Gung Ho Online is set to bring some colorful brawling action to the Nintendo Switch in a few months with their free-to-play battle royal about ninja kids tossing around bubblegum and smacking each other with giant toy weapons, Ninjala. While the full version of the game won’t be arriving on the eShop until May 27th, Nintendo Switch owners who are eager to dive into the action can look forward to an open beta test for the game running later this month. The beta begins on April 28, but you can start preloading the demo client onto your Nintendo Switch today.
Titled the Ninja Exclusive Ninja Club edition of the game, this upcoming open beta features a small amount of content from the full release of the game. The main component featured in the open beta is the online battle system. Saved game data and progress from the open beta won’t be carrying over to the full version of the game.
