Developer’s comment: Now that we’ve had Shinobi go from Testing Grounds into Live, we now make a number of nerfs to Shinobi here based on its over-performance.

Firstly, we make the Front/Side Dodge Kick punishable on Miss.

Secondly, we reduce the window of opportunity to enter Back Flip so that Shinobi is not able to notice the opponent’s action and actively react in time to Back Flip when necessary.

Thirdly, we nerf the Stamina costs of certain moves to make Shinobis slow down their combat output, and introduce moments where they need to consider if they really want to spend the stamina.

Finally, we nerf Shooting Stars so that Shinobi’s aren’t comboing it into Front Dodge Kick.

  1. Fuck you ubisoft , I’m done with this shitty game , nerf shinobi but not the real annoying characters like orochi, only came back to play the new shinobi then you nerf him expeditiously fuck you again

    • Bruh you trash at the game so when the devs actually fix a broken mechanic that you were exploiting you get mad and curse them out. It’s not their fault you can’t keep up. They actually did what they were suppose to do and listened to the community and actually cared.
