Shinobi - Summary

The legendary ninja warrior returns.

Betrayed by your friend you must battle an ancient and evil clan in this epic reboot of the acclaimed Shinobi™ series…

Shinobi captures the classic side-scrolling action from the original Shinobi games. This coupled with intense combat in exotic locations and over the top boss encounters is what players have loved since the early days of the series.

Exclusively developed for the Nintendo 3DS, Shinobi is presented in stunning 3D visuals while introducing several exciting new features and challenges that Shinobi veterans and newcomers will equally enjoy.


A classic reborn
Re-experience the classic gameplay of the original Shinobi titles, with a modern twist. Pattern-based enemies, twitch gameplay and side-scrolling action all come together with an updated and unique visual 3D style, deeper combat, and all-new challenges.

Fast and furious ninja combat
Defeat enemies with skill and style as you switch between ranged, melee and acrobatic attacks on the fly. And rely on your Ninja magic to get you out of tight spots and give you advantage during intense fights.

Streetpass compatible

Become a master ninja
With a brand new combo system to master, a host of achievements to unlock and challenge maps to complete, you will want to return again and again to better your score and ranking. Watch recorded replays to help find your weaknesses and perfect your Ninja skills.

I got this game recently and im impressed at how good it is. Its old school Shinobi from the genesis and game gear days back on present day.
Its a bit challenging but it just makes it the more enjoyable since you have to pay atention to the game mechanics to beat it.
It also has a great soundtrack and plenty of extras to unlock. It also has a special mode with infinite lives if you dont care to challenge the normal mode.
Definitly deserved more sales, but the reviews focused too much on not recognising the graphical style.
