GameMill is working together with NBC and Universal’s Game Team to create American Ninja Warrior Challenge, based on the NBC hit show American Ninja Warrior. It’s slated out on March 19th, 2019 for Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The goal is to achieve Total Victory, and players will compete on courses from the show to earn the title of “American Ninja Warrior”. Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila will be providing commentary in the game as well. Players can test their skills in couch multi-player, or take on the challenging career mode to compete all the way to Mt MIdoriyama.
