Touch Battle Ninja was delisted from the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America in May of 2018. According to a Wikipedia discussion started by user Kristie Ann Webb this is when several 3DS titles published by Agetec were removed from the eShop. Many of these titles remain available in Europe as of this writing where they were also published by Agetec.
This indicates a possible closure of the company which hasn’t released a new title since 2016 and whose website and social media accounts have been dormant for just as long. As such, it is likely that the European versions of these games will be delisted at some point. Meanwhile, several of the titles remain available in Japan where they were released by publishers other than Agetec.
The roster of delisted eShop titles in North America follows:
- Air Battle Hockey 3D
- Bloody Vampire
- Fish On 3D
- The Phantom Thief Stina and 30 Jewels
- Rabi Laby 3
- Touch Battle Ninja
- Touch Battle Tank 3D
- Touch Battle Tank 3D 2
- Witch’s Cat
About the Game
“A new member of the popular Touch Battle series has arrived. It’s Touch Battle Ninja!
Move your vehicle using the Circle Pad, aim and fire using the stylus you have the same touch-battle feeling as always – but your vehicle has become a ninja. Make full use of jumps and ninja techniques to take care of the swarming hordes of demons.
The player can choose from two characters the Ninja of Strength, or the Skilled Female Ninja. By saving up spirit, the ninja can power up to get 2 levels of attack. You can enjoy formidable battles, using powerful attacks to cut down the enemies. The female ninja moves quickly, uses flying attacks in up to 3 directions, and has the special ability of being able to move through the air.
The enemy ranks are full of crafty characters, each with their own special features. They’ll come attacking fiercely from the ground and the air. On top of that, huge, evil demons will appear, blocking the path of the ninjas.
Altogether, there are 80 stages. The fierce battle of the ninja, charged with the duty of defeating all of the demons, begins.“
