Dojo Battle

MGA Entertainment Inc. (MGAE) is entering a new category with the debut of Dojo Battle —a high-tech ninja experience.

With Dojo Battle, kids can suit up with electronic swords and chest shields that include patented Smart Strike technology. As opponents face-off, the chest shield detects strikes and keeps score as the battle gets enhanced with lights and sounds. After three consecutive strikes, the system declares a winner.

“Dojo Battle gives kids a chance to have fun — whether as a duo or with multiple players,” says Isaac Larian, CEO and founder of MGA Entertainment. “With great patented technology, plus tried-and-true battling play among kids, team MGAE has done it again — we are bringing fun back to the toy aisle with new and creative products.”

The system includes two swords, two shields, and two different colored discs. Recommended for ages 8 and up, up to 12 kids can play Dojo Battle at once.

The game is available now at retailers, including Target and Amazon.
