Believe it or not, it’s already been two years since Fruit Ninja sliced its way onto the iTunes App Store. The slash-happy game notched up over 20 million sales for Aussie developer Halfbrick within the first 12 months, and now the studio is celebrating with a week-long competition tour that will see someone crowned Australia’s Fruit Ninja Master.
The Halfbrick crew will be visiting Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne later this month and are inviting Fruit Ninja fans to compete for a place at the Fruit Ninja Master national final in Sydney on May 30. The winner will take the title and “thousands of dollars worth of prizes including a Ninja Experience trip for two to Japan”.
Every person who shows up will get a free download code for Fruit Ninja on the iTunes App Store, the opportunity to play new content and meet the team that made it all happen.
Dates and locations are below:
• Brisbane – Monday May 21st, Queens Street Mall 10am – 7pm
• Sydney – Thursday May 24th, Darling Harbour 10am – 7pm
• Melbourne – Saturday May 26th, Federation Square 10am – 7pm
Anyone can enter, and it’s totally free, but keep in mind that you’ll be competing on one of 30 iPad gameplay stations. I was too impatient to get past the first few levels, but hopefully one of you guys will jump in and do Kotaku proud.
