About The Game

Ninja Kids is an arcade video game.

Four ninjas with different abilities attempt to save the town from the RESURRECTION OF THE SATAN! Not just any Satan, mind you, but THE Satan.


The US version is slightly different, it has the 'Winners Don't Use Drugs' screen.

In the US version, all the references to 'Satan' were changed to the 'Evil One'.
