■ Build a “Secret Base!”

There are likely many who recall the child-like phrase that is “secret base.” Ninja Box, a brand new project from Bandai Namco Entertainment, is a game where you build your very own “secret base”—the only secret base of its kind—whether it is a “relaxing space” filled with only your favorite things, or a “giant fortress” big enough to get lost in.

Place your favorite things and you can make a relaxing space all your own. In the following screenshot, you can see the game’s large variety of items.

Crafting elements are also being prepared, allowing you to create parts and traps by gathering materials. What is being made here…?

From a tree house to a giant fortress, players are free to create their base how they see fit.

—Build your base up high if you want. Utilize your space to the fullest.
—You can even create a maze-like base.

Enemies will also attack your base. Repel the scoundrels approaching your secret base by using traps.

As the title “Ninja Box” suggests, many unique and outrageous ninjas appear in the game. How will you befriend them?
