Season 4 is packed with new content and is available now through March 24, 2021.

Season 4 includes:

  • New stage, Fort Riverdale, is a London-themed ‘nighttime’ stage, the first of its kind. It features a giant clocktower, a gum factory, and a background filled with beautiful city skylines. The stage has more elevation differences than previous maps and features two new gimmicks: the Warp Gate and the Giant Gum Gacha.
    • Warp Gate allows players to travel between similarly colored Warp Gates around the stage. Think of it like the Underground, except actually fast.
    • Giant Gum Gacha is triggered by pressing a switch, spitting out a piece of gum with a variety of effects. It could increase players S-Energy, but watch out! Some gum may even cause damage.
  • Two new Katana type weapons, Scrap Saber and Chewing V, cut ahead of the competition.
  • New Ninjutsu Shinobi Disco creates a dance field that forces all who enter to bust a move. Other actions will be tough to pull out when boogying to the beat.
  • New Special Froggy Block summons a box-wall either in front of players as a normal attack or near a targeted opponent as a wide attack.
  • Two new Shinobi Cards are ready for play, including Energy Hoarder, which increases the amount of S-Energy recovered when collecting it on the map; and Quick Respawn, which allows players to respawn in place with low health up to three times.
  • Other improvements incoming include decreased time between finding and starting a match, favorites now able to be saved separately, and Spectators being able to host a room.

GOE will also be releasing the next dev diary on January 13, which will be revealing more new content for Season 4.

Review codes for Story Mode Chapter 1 and 2 are available upon request. Please email for codes.
