When Fruit Ninja was released two years ago, I'll bet that the developer of the vegetation slicing app, Halfbrick Studios, had no idea that their game would reach quite the levels of success that it has.
Halfbrick aren't ones to sit around and bathe in their victory, no, rather than doing that, they have instead decided to let players bask in their warm successful glow by doling out freebies and new gameplay options to players to thank them for their support over the two years that Fruit Ninja has been live.
Having already provided ten free updates since launch, this new anniversary update provides powerups and new characters, you can read the descriptions below.
-Welcome Gutsu and Truffles: Joining Sensei in the legendary Fruit Ninja dojo are Gutsu and Truffles, best friends and business partners. Travelling merchants, they have set up shop and welcome all to check out their wares in the new Gutsus Cart menu. Players can also watch their debut in the all-new animated short created by Halfbrick and the Peoples Republic of Animation here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca7H8GaKqmQ .
-Powerups: Announcing Berry Blast, Peachy Time and Bomb Deflects three new items to purchase from Gutsus Cart. Explode with juice, add time to your game or deflect those pesky bombs with these awesome additions. Powerups can be obtained by spending Starfruit, which is the new Fruit Ninja currency collected at the end of every game based on your ninja skills.
In terms of giveaways, Halfbrick are touring their native Australia handing out free Fruit Ninja download codes though those who aren't lucky enough to bump into the team down in Oz can click here visit the Fruit Ninja anniversary website to "join in on the fun".
