A new fruit is appearing in Fruit Ninja [$.99] and Fruit Ninja HD [$2.99] this afternoon as a free update to the delectable App Store darling. The fruit? It’s the pomegranate, a pink-ish fruit best used in kollivozoumi and as a reward for impish phoenixes who act like parrots in public and perch on large, grizzled, and muscled men.
The new fruit isn’t just fodder -- Halfbrick tells us that it’s a multi-slice bullet time fruit that offers an opportunities to score huge at the end of Arcade and Classic mode games. It won’t be appearing in Zen Mode, though, as it’s a little too raucous.
In addition to a new fruit, this free update will also give owners a new track in the Dojo and also the ability to see friends high-score results. We’re pretty stoked about the latter -- it’s a fantastic way to competitive play. Lord knows how long I’ve spent attempting to beat some of my buds’ Pac-Man DX scores, for example.
Fruit Ninja has been making a lot of noise of late. A Kinect version of the game was shown during E3 and met with some rave previews. I’ve been told that this version is also an awesome shoulder workout, but I suppose that’s neither here nor there.
