Take a look at CoroCoro's Ninja Box manga

Just don't expect it to make sense

CoroCoro has put up a free sample of their Ninja Box manga. While it's not available in English, you can still flip through the pages and check out what the comic is like. I'll have to warn you...I have no idea what is going on. All I know is that the main character was naked by the second page.

Ninja Box gets its second trailer

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.

Assassin Carton

CoroCoro is pushing Ninja Box HARD! I'm still not even sure what you really do in this game, but I guess it would help to know Japanese. We're still waiting on any signs of this one getting localized. So far there hasn't been a single mention, which is never a good sign.

Bandai Namco shares new Ninja Box screens, character profiles, and a Japanese demo

Demo stealth launched in Japan

Bandai Namco has released a new wave of details for Ninja Box. You can check out new screens here, and read up on a new batch of characters below. There's also a code for a Japanese demo!

■ The Secret Employees of “Bukkowa Company,” The Enemy Organization

They move in the shadows, but their names are… the Sunshines (in Japanese, this is a play on words for Three Company Employees, which is spelled San-Shain-Zu).

Their motto—“Bukkowa, showerrrrrrr!”

The Sunshines will stand in the way of Tonkachi and friends. What is the extent of their power…!?

Shakunee

A woman with an insatiable quest for beauty, it is rumored she devotes her time after 5:00 p.m. almost entirely to beauty. She deplores the fact that her co-workers are a robot and a gorilla, and seems to have given up on the idea of inter-company marriage. She attacks Tonkachi and friends using high-tech drone machinery.

Jarisuke

NO MORE frittering away! The accountant of Sunshines!

A robot who is very set against working overtime and will ignore orders from the president of the company in order not to do so. He is sternly cracking down on the company’s incurrence of wasted expenses, and is particularly watchful of Shakune’s actions, as she often fritters away. In battle, he is a crafty one whose quick movements allow him to hide in an instant.

Meshigawara-san

Uo, uoo! Uooooo!

An ultra elite gorilla that can understand human language. It can only actually speak the words “uo” and “banana,” but Shakune and Jarisuke have a lot of faith in him. He attacks Tonkachi and friends using his beloved bananas and wild movements.

Bukkowa Company

Bukkowa Company is an organization of bad guys trying to misuse the Ninja Box. It seems to have a lot of employees, including its underlings and the secret members known as the “Sunshines.” There is also an underlings chief who pilots a robot! What other bad guys will show their face…?
