Game review: ‘Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido’ is fun, fast, over-the-top puzzler

Parents need to know that “Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido” is an action/puzzle diversion accessible for a Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS diversion systems. Players set out on a query to save their land from hardship by a poise of a mislaid art of “Sushido.” Players conflict by throwing stacks of dull sushi plates during their opponents, regulating several sorcery powers to boost their abilities. The diversion has a elementary premise, though a controls can take utterly a bit of time to get used to, generally when regulating a controller as opposite to a touchscreen. The diversion does underline some scenes of mild, cartoonish assault over a march of a story, with some characters shown visibly hurt, though never display any blood or striking injury.


“Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido” is a diversion in that sushi isn’t usually a juicy bit of food, though a truly enchanting dish. This is a universe though fish, where sushi is conjured adult by visionary creatures, dubbed “Sushi Sprites,” and where a enterprise for sushi led to epic fight that decimated a land. Players take on a purpose of Musashi, a immature child whose relatives left during a Sushi Struggle war. After a fatal confront with Jinrai, a absolute Sushi Sprite, it’s detected that Musashi has a intensity to learn a Way of Sushido, better a Empire and pierce a fun of sushi to all. Players join a ravel by chowing down on plates of sushi and aggressive opponents with their stacks of dull plates. Move quick to compare mixed plates of a same tone and use your arsenal of Sushi Sprite powers to benefit a tip palm in quick paced food fights. Defeat a Empire in a game’s singular actor story mode or exam your Sushido skills opposite friends in both internal and online multiplayer.


Leave it to Nintendo to spin food fighting into a martial art. And if duking it out during a sushi smorgasboard magically conjured out of skinny atmosphere seems bizarre to you, that’s hardly scratching a aspect of a stupidity that “Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido” has to offer. If we try to make clarity of a game, you’re usually going to get some-more and some-more confused. From a grounds to a characters, “Sushi Striker” is so unapologetically over a tip that we usually have to hurl with it.

As crazy and fun as “Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido”’s grounds competence be, a gameplay is where things get a bit fishy. There’s so most function on a screen, it can be tough to keep lane of what we need. It’s formidable to follow a movement and to see that plates are that colors until we dedicate to a chain. It’s even some-more frustrating if you’re regulating a controller contra a touchscreen. The diversion was creatively announced as a 3DS exclusive, so it’s most easier to slip a stylus or finger opposite a shade and to daub icons to activate special abilities than it is to use a joystick to pierce a cursor around a screen. It’s still a lot of fun to play, though if we don’t hang with a hold controls, you’re usually adding a whole new covering of complications to an differently illusory experience.
