NetEase, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTES) today announced that Grammy-nominated DJ and Producer Steve Aoki is now available as a playable character in Speedy Ninja for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android. Players will need to update their app in order to find and unlock Steve Aoki under the selectable character list of ninjas. Speedy Ninja is a fast-paced endless runner that challenges players to navigate perilous forests and dodge bizarre objects with the help of custom characters, weapons, and power-ups.
Aoki will sport his signature long hair and wield a microphone weapon, with a special DIM MAK cake power-up to help players race past their friends on the global leaderboard. Players who unlock Aoki will be able to play the character indefinitely. An additional premium skin, Neon Aoki, offers a cybernetic take on Steve Aoki as well as provide powerful abilities to destroy enemies. Neon Aoki is available for a one-time purchase of $4.99.
"Speedy Ninja is already an amped up game; you've got the crazy-looking bats, flying spears, and even freakin' dragons," said Steve Aoki. "This is the first video game I've worked on and it was a total trip watching this project go from concept to launch. Download my character now and let the cakes fly!"
