Retro kung-fu action game Fire Dragon Fist Master Xiao-Mei launches Switch via Nintendo Shop on May 19 in Japan for 1,700 yen, developer PiXEL announced.

Harimanada, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master, Clockwork Knightetc.), new characters, a “Xiaoying Mode”, where the story develops from the perspective of the main character Xiao-Mei’s older sister Xiao-Ying, a “Gallery Mode” with illustrations and character design by Studio Vigor, and character voices of the girl department Suika.
