Beating over 100s of entrants, Shinobi was chosen by the 80 million strong fan base to be the newest member of the robot fighting force, and boasts a unique samurai skill set and sword based fighting mechanics.

Designed by Real Steel Fan Ryle Sammut, the winning entry is set to shake things up in the robot boxing world, bringing with it a whole new fighting style and a skill set to boot. With Shinobi at your control, you’ll have to push yourself to the limit - training yourself in the art of samurai sword fighting to rise through the ranks, and prove yourself to be a legendary fighter.


With previous achievements for the Real Steel franchise including being named “App of the Week” and having over over 10 million downloads under its belt, there’s little doubt that Shinobi will add to the game’s already enormous success – bringing with it brand new challenges, that we expect will have us glued to our phones for the foreseeable future.
