GungHo has announced that it will be running a second open beta for its arena brawler Ninjala, and that it will take place on May 31st for Switch. This follows the open beta that was carried out last month. This second open beta will feature both the training mode and the eight player arena battle mode, along with four of the 12 weapons that will be in the full release. The weapons are the Ippon Katana, Drill Beat, SK8 Hammer, and Trick Ball. Just like the previous beta this Ninjala beta will not require a Nintendo Online subscription.
Alongside the announcement of the next Ninjala beta a new developer diary has also been released.
