Hey everyone! It’s Sav and Tarn here this week
What's been going on this week?
Our website has gotten a brand new look! As Flash no longer works, all of our games have been moved to the Ninja Kiwi Archive which you can log onto with your web account and play all your favourite games there! We are aware that Tower Keepers is not currently available but we are looking into this at the moment! :)
Update 24 for BTD6 has officially arrived on iOS, Android and Steam! With new hero Sauda the Sword Master, a new intermediate map, the return of the Golden Bloon and several limited time trophy store items, you can see the full patch notes here.
BTD Battles also received update 6.10 which added a new map and removed the random 4th tower from MOAB Pit and higher arenas! See the patch notes here.

1st: skibimi - 2 minutes and 1.45 seconds

Questions from the comments:
The website changed... so what now? Do I go over to the archive to play your games or wait until things go back to how it was before the change?
We aren’t planning on bringing the Flash games back to the site.
Hi, what happened with TK? It is not in the archive. How can I play now if I am a computer player?
We’re working on it!
Are limited time trophy items seasonal? In other words, will they come back, or are they gone forever?
Some may return but we don’t want to limit ourselves to always bringing back the same old trophy store items.
Will we ever see an interaction between the Heroes and the Special Agents from BTD5?
Maybe one day!
Will the wheel of fate ever work again? I need those sweet 3 titanium boxes for my bi-yearly dopamine hit.
Unfortunately it won’t be returning.
Will there ever be SAS4 web championships again? Curious as I'm super hyped to play since the archive works again!
Yes! There is one running at the moment.
The Flash version SAS4 (SAS4 web) item has disappeared in "This weekend's focus", Do you mean that you won't sell Premier Guns in the Flash version of SAS4 store in the future? Also, is this related to a bug where the store will be unavailable once the Premier Gun is on sale?
We had removed it as SAS4 web was not available to players but we have brought it back this week. However, we won’t be selling premium guns still as this does still break the store. :(
Two questions: What does UAV stand for and is it true that there's a monkey that manually operates the tack shooter from inside, as implied in BMC?
UAV - Unmanned Aerial Vehicle and we cannot comment on engineers creations, they are very secretive.
Who inflates the bloons? Or do they divide like cells?
We aren’t sure… We are still trying to figure it out!
What kind of specs you devs rockin? 3990x and rtx 3090s right? For the round 400 madness.
Ha! If only.
I Wonder Pat Fusty Can hug Bloons like the Boss Bloons and Pop?
He will certainly try!
will you guys ever add the second city to BMC mobile/steam?
Not at this stage!
What is this Sauda thing people are talking about?
Your new favourite hero.
Who does Quincy hang out with the most?
How many spikes can a spactory spike a stack of spikes?
Is lotus island intentionally shaped like australia?
According to our artists, nope!
Why do the bloons not leave the track? Do they die off the track, are they too dumb to go off, or do they have some other reasons? It would be easier to get past the monkeys if they could split up?
Are any NK employees allergic to Kiwi?
Not that I’m aware of!
who should be my waifu, Brickell or the new hero shauda
We can’t answer that… you have to pick with your heart.
Will you make more means to promote art? Besides the upvotes and the blog's art, there isnt really much reward to making fan art.
We also have the fan-art channel in our Discord! If you have suggestions though, leave a comment about them!
I have an interesting question. Have you been thinking of making a first person SAS game?
Not at the moment!
What's the most used power?
How long has Sauda been in development for?
Development in earnest since last update launched, but in general design and thinking for considerably longer.
What's Striker Jones' first name?
Since you guys are really good with comedy, WHY NOT JUST ADD A COMEDIAN HERO INTO BTD6?!
We already said we won’t add Tarn.
Have the monkeys ever had dart battles against each other?
Only for practise and only with rubber tipped darts!
Has Benjammin ever not been in the house?
Sure. Did he hate it though? Yes.
I get that you guys cant answer all the questions but every time but when I ask a question and it isn't answered I feel like I raised my hand for a high 5 but you just walked by
WAY TO MAKE US FEEL BAD
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
