Ninjala landed itself a pretty high-profile collab with DJ Steve Aoki and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu teaming up for a remix of "Ninja Re Bang Bang" to promote the game. How in the world did this collab come to be? Aoki and KPP talked to Comicbook.com to explain.
Steve Aoki: They approached me to remix the song before the game launched. I'm a huge fan of Yasutaka Nakata and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, so my answer was immediately yes. And then when I saw a video of the gameplay, the pop world-view and characters made an impression on me. From there, the "Ninja Re Bang Bang" remix came naturally. I thought the sound of the remix would complement the Ninjala game perfectly. I'm honored to have gotten the chance to work with one of my favorite artists Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and I hope you guys enjoy the remix while you're playing the game.
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu: I was curious about the name “Ninjala” and tweeted about it. Then Ninjala reached out to me asking if we wanted to work together, so we decided to collaborate with “Ninja Re Bang Bang.” I thought that the colorful world and ninja theme was a perfect fit with the song.
