In Flag Battles, players can prove they have the stealth to be a shinobi by stealing the enemys flag while defending their own. The team with the most flag captures, of course, wins. The other mode, Barrier Battles, has ninjas proving their strategic mettle by simultaneously fighting for control of three barrier areas. It is said that each level has their own unique terrain that players can use to their tactical advantage. The team that controls the most areas at the end of the match wins.
