Finally the Ninja Master send his last two students to search their friends and continue the investigation. Then Hiro and Futo leave the Ninja Mountain with courage.

You play as Hiro. Hiro is  the only ninja student that can use Kuji magic. This Kuji magic are really powerful against the Evil Samurai Warlord’s minions. The variety of Kuji magic can be obtain from Kuji Shrines. 


You can play another ninja character after rescued a friend. The character can be switched to at any time. Each character has special technique that drain a single sphere of Unstable Ki energy with each use.The 6 characters that you can use are:

1.    Hiro: The main protagonist of our story. Hiro is the only ninja that can use Kuji magic spells. His special move is a lock on attack that stops time and automatically attacks the enemies that have been selected.
2.    Futo: Hiro's best friend. He's a rather large guy and enjoys eating quite a bit. He attacks with a hammer that does a lot of damage. His special move is to roll into a ball and attack.
3.  Suzume: Carries around a flute that is useful for charming enemies and then doing a lot of damage. Suzume can stun mutiple enemies with her flute, and her melee combat skills with the flute are good.
4.   Shun: The archer of the group, very useful for taking out enemy archers. Shun's special attack enables him to tie a lit explosive to the shaft of one of his arrows.
5.    Tora: He's very fast, nimble, and light on his feet. Also deadly at close range but is weak against spearmen. Tora can throw himself into a "tiger dash", propelling him forward at a great speeds when large distances need to be covered. At the end of his dash, he will pounce into a spinning claw attack.
6.   Kunoichi: Wields a spear, making her useful against spearmen. Kunoichi, anticipating the rush of enemies coming her way, will spin her spear above her head, drawing upon the magical energy infused within the weapon - then unleash a spinning helicopter attack on her foes.

To increase your health point you can consume fruit or fish. You can catch a fish with your fishing pole by floating in the river using your hat.
