Ninja gameplay 3DS

In this rhythm game, the player controls the Ninja who wears all black. He uses the A button, and then the D-Pad, to swing his sword back in forth in time to destroy the arrows shot as his lord.


Button Mode

  • A: Swing sword right. Can only be done if the sword is to the left.
  • D-Pad: Swing sword left. Can only be done if the sword is to the right.

Arcade Version

  • D-Pad: Swing Sword Left and Right (depends on its current place).

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Swing sword left or right (depends on its current place).

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The arrow is split in half.
  • Barely: The arrow will bounce out of the way, making a shine noise. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The arrow goes past the ninja and pins to the wall, shocking the master.

Rhythm Item


Rolled-Up Secrets
My lord carries this scroll with him at all times. I have never asked him what it contains, but the rumor is that its secrets made him the wealthy and powerful man he is today. But it might just be a love letter or something.

Skill Star

When you are at the four arrow shoot time slice the forth arrow perfectly to collect the star.



  • This is the only rhythm game to, instead of starting with a practice, starts with a cutscene.
  • The towers during the cutscene look similar to the one's seen in Dog Ninja.
  • According to the debug menu in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, this game was supposed to have a prequel.[1]
  • In the Korean version, the title screen is different along with the rating screens, ninjas, the castles, the face on the practice wooden decoy and the lord.
