We recently ran our very first real-life Fruit Ninja competition, which was broadcast live on Facebook. The competition saw 12 warriors from different combat disciplines battling for the chance to become immortalised in the game.
We’re pleased to announce that the champion of our competition is Michaela Cavazos, aka Astrid the Great! In her free time, she cosplays as a Jedi, but her weapon of choice for the contest was a traditional Viking sword.
To commemorate Michaela’s victory, we’ve created the Viking-themed Michkillya blade for your slicing pleasure. Equipping it will modify the game’s physics, causing fruits to spin and fly off more realistically - just like using a real broadsword! To use it, simply equip it in the inventory menu.
You can get the new blade in the latest Fruit Ninja Free update. The update also replaces the Ghostbusters™ event with the 5th Anniversary tournament and mini games. We hope you enjoy it!In case you missed it, you can watch the mess and excitement of the full Fruit Ninja Live tournament here. Prefer to watch them in bite-sized chunks? We're also releasing episodes starring each contestant every Friday, starting with this one. DOWNLOAD FRUIT NINJA FREE
