Shawnimals creator and Electronic Gaming Monthly
alum Shawn Smith finally broke his silence on Ninjatown
, sitting with EGM
to talk about the game and share a couple screenshots. We knew to expect plenty of characters from the Shawnimals plush toy line when the Ninjatown trailer
debuted, but, until now, we've been left in the dark on how the "action-strategy" title would play.
According to Shawn, battles will be split into two phases, building and combat, the first of which allows you to drop in structures and create/upgrade the different ninjas at your disposal. While combat hasn't been finalized, it's expected to include a "puzzle element." We're not sure how that would work with the two screens shown so far, but it certainly sounds interesting!
