Publisher GameMill Entertainment in collaboration with NBC and Universal's Games team announced that American Ninja Warrior Challenge, a new video game based on NBC's hit show American Ninja Warrior, is now available for PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Throughout its 10-year run (and counting), the three-time Emmy Award-nominated American Ninja Warrior has been a cultural phenomenon that captivates millions of viewers every week. Based on Sasuke from Japan's Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, the show has no gender boundaries, and has inspired athletes and contestants of all ages. The competitors tackle qualifying and city finals rounds across the country, all in the hope of reaching the four-stage national finals in Las Vegas, which includes the intimidating Mt. Midoriyama. While it is one of the most difficult competition shows on television, American Ninja Warrior is accessible to everyone, regardless of age.

For more than a decade, each season of American Ninja Warrior has been a highly immersive experience that has provided fans with nail-biting finishes on intense obstacle courses. American Ninja Warrior Challenge captures that level of suspense and excitement in an authentic way, and lets players of all ages and skill levels compete to earn bragging rights as the next American Ninja Warrior.
