At the beginning, you are asked to choose a character: Ashura, Voltage, or Naomi. After you choose, the game begins. Your character wakes up in Ninjitsu City, home of the ninjas. You are invited by Victor, the Red Ninja, to his house where he introduces you to the different aspects of the game. After that, you can choose a house to live in. As the game progresses, your house becomes bigger. During the day, you can visit other places, talk to fellow hedgehogs, upgrade your house, hang out with your mates (the other two playable characters) and more. In the game, you wake up anytime from 0500 to 1000, and you fall asleep anytime from 2100 to 0000. Time progresses like in real life, so 1 hour in real life = 1 hour in the game. However, time in the game doesn't progess when the Nintendo VR is turned off. When your character's birthday arrives, you get presents from your mates (the other two playable characters). At random points during the game, you are asked to fight invading villains. Sometimes you are given a choice to start a pairing with Naomi (if you are Ashura), Ashura (if you are Naomi), or a female NPC (if you are Voltage).
