Raid: Shadow Legends is a free role-playing game that was originally released for mobile devices in 2018 by Plarium Games, which was brought to PC in early 2020. Its graphics are pretty well seen, but its marketing is different: its campaigns promotional and online influencer. the links gave rise to enough memes to justify their own Get to know your Meme page.
There will probably be even more memes in the very near future, as Plarium announced today that Tyler “Ninja” Blevins will become a playable character in the game, starting July 16th.
"Ninja is not just an amazing addition to our Champions because of its positive impact on the gaming industry: it has its own skill sets and special attacks that will be an amazing asset to any player's roster," he said. said Noam’s vice president of marketing, Plarium. Said Sagie. "Ninja will accompany his fans on the journey as he explores RAID with his new character through a series of exciting live broadcasts."
I had a quick hit around Twitch and Google, and from what I can tell, Ninja had never played (or at least never streamed) in Raid: Shadow Legends. Still, he's "very excited to introduce RAID fans to my champion, designed to match the way I've always portrayed myself in a role-playing game," he said. "As my fans know, I love the RPG genre, and seeing myself as a fantasy character with my own set of special abilities and attributes is fantastic!"
The ad includes some pictures of the Ninja character and I have to say they are a bit disconcerting. The katana and bow give him a vaguely (but appropriate) ninja look, but he also has a wing, a real feathered wing. This in itself is not terribly strange in a fantasy game, but what is strange is that there is only one wing that springs from the right shoulder blade. There is absolutely nothing left. What the hell will he do with this, stand three feet off the ground and distract the enemies by making frantic turns in circles?
Ninja will reveal more information about your character, including design influences, stats, and unique special abilities, during a Twitch live broadcast on July 19th. Hopefully, it will also fulfill all of our wing business.
The Ninja character will be free for all players, but only for three months; after that, he will no longer be available, although anyone who claims that Ninja will keep him forever. To get yours, you'll need to sign in for seven days during the three-month period (any seven, they don't have to be consecutive) starting July 16th.
