Yes, I meant that. And no, your children should not be playing Grand Theft Auto V, no matter how hard they try to convince you how child-friendly it is. Mini Ninjas is a quirky little game with good graphics, cute characters, and gorgeous art and colors. This is a nice little homage to ancient Japanese culture, but definitely does not accurately portray it. (But who does, really?)
Plenty of cartoonish violence that includes battering enemies with swords and other various ninja things, but there is absolutely no bloodshed. Instead, the evil samurai revert to their original forms as cute woodland creatures. One section of the game featuring a graveyard and spirits may frighten little children.
