What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Kunai is an upcoming action/adventure for the Nintendo Switch and Windows PCs. The game is set far into the future, after the events of a war between robots and humanity that effectively destroyed the human race. Players take control of Tabby, a young tablet that has managed to become possessed by the spirit of a ancient warrior determined to seek glory in battle. With his newfound ninja skills, it's up to Tabby to take up arms against robots and cut a path through the world to uncover what happened in the war, if humans are still alive, and what his purpose might be. Violence in the game is conducted by swords, knives, and other weaponry against other robotic opponents, who seem to spray blood in the air when attacked. But this is shown in a cartoonish way, and isn't gory at all. There also could be some mild profanity in the dialogue as well. Gameplay will be based around some split-second timing, which may require some practice for players to grasp all of the abilities, and there's the promise of possible challenges and speed runs for gamers looking for additional tests to their gaming skills.
