With the announcement of Ninja All-Stars joining Super Dungeon, fans of Ninja All-Stars are doubtlessly wondering how this will impact the future of Ninja All-Stars?
The Ninja All-Stars core game is still available, and remains an excellent standalone experience, as well a perfect entrypoint to discovering the history, story, models, and mystery of Kagejima and its people. Additionally, the Ninja All-Stars rulebook and all game cards are now available for you to download and print to use in your games. (You can find links to download them at the bottom of this article.)
For those of you who are diehard ninja masters, we are providing the Ninja All-Stars Living Rulebook. The living rulebook features the complete rules for Ninja All-Stars in a single Word document. The document allows you, our fans, to grow and change Ninja All-Stars to suit the desires of the community and your own gaming group as you see fit. We are huge fans of Ninja All-Stars and cannot wait to see it grow and evolve in your hands!
The biggest question many of you will likely have is, “what about existing and future models?” Don’t worry! The existing models are not going away. They are simply being incorporated into Super Dungeon and will gain new packaging and cards for Super Dungeon. Future releases from the continent of Kagejima will be designed as Super Dungeon expansions. (The community is encouraged to build new Ninja All-Stars profiles for these models using the living rulebook!) Super Dungeon: Arena is particularly well suited for mirroring Ninja All-Stars’ team driven PvP-style of play, and over the coming weeks we will be releasing new challenges for Arena adapted from Ninja All-Stars.
While Ninja All-Stars is changing, the future for the inhabitants of Kagejima is still bright. As a newly revealed continent in the world of Super Dungeon, Kagejima will join a larger world opening up new and exciting possibilities for your games!
