Halfbrick Studios has released today what it is calling the “biggest update ever” to Fruit Ninja. The popular game, which has garnered nearly 700k reviews on the App Store, has been redesigned from the ground up with new content, gameplay elements and more.

At its core, most of the mechanics are still the same—the game is still about slicing fruit as quickly and efficiently as possible. But there are a lot of additions, such as new experience and currency systems, which are used to buy various upgrades and power ups.

Here are some of the biggest changes:

  • Awesome powers – Blades and Dojos in the game now add a unique twist to gameplay. Bonus powers, extra time, fresh surprises – everything changes the game, so experiment with your favorite combinations and take your score to a whole new level!
  • New menus – We’ve rebuilt everything! A new intuitive menu flow showcases the action, so it’s now even easier to get to where you need to be and slice that fruit!
  • Universe and characters – Welcome to the world of Fruitasia, which is home to many colorful characters! In this update please welcome Katsuro and Mari, joining Sensei, Gutsu and Truffles to guide you through the action! More characters will be added regularly!

And here’s the official promotional spot:

Whether you’re a huge Fruit Ninja fan, or have never played the game, you’re going to want to check out this latest version. If you’re interested, you can find it in the App Store for $0.99. Keep an eye out for in-app purchases though, they can get extremely pricey.

    Used to love this game, maybe I will try it out on the new 6 plus I am receiving sometime tomorrow or monday… DAMN, waiting for a preordered phone is so frustrating….

    • The screens size is part of the reason I stopped playing it in the first place. Good luck on a speedy delivery.

    • Fruit Ninja hasn’t been updated for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, so it’ll just look like a zoomed in, not-so-high-definition version of the game.

    you should stop using apple’s “complete redesign” bs.. this is still a repetitive fruit slashing game

  • it looks the same to me in terms of design…

    Fruit Ninja and Angry Birds were once legends. I and people around me rarely play them nowadays. It’s good to see developers update their games and apps though.

    • Andy

      In fairness, at least the Fruit Ninja developer didn’t milk the hell out of Fruit Ninja by making a dozen more games, unlike the guys behind Angry Birds.

      • halacoglu

        Agreed.

  • Troy

    hasn’t even been updated for iPhone 6 -_-

  • Jared

    I stopped playing this game long ago when they started with the “fermium” in app purchase crap!

  • TLDR; New gameplay mechanics, but it’s still about slicing fruit, Halfbrick Studios want more money so have added revolutionary (I’m being sarcastic their not really revolutionary) in-app-purchases.

    Im not paying 0.99¢ for this game! Even though I own a $800 phone…

        To be honest I wouldn’t even play it for free lol.

    Once I got to expert level 30, I am unable unlock any more blades or dojo in the group ‘additional’. The bar with the little Chinese stars will not progress. All I see is ‘Sensei is researching this power.’ What gives? How do I progress? Grr.
