Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master

A recent posting for a PEGI rating, Europe’s equivalent of an ESRB rating, points to Sega giving Shinobi III the 3D Classics treatment for the 3DS.

Sega has been in a kind of 3D classic frenzy of late. As of now they have remade Super Hang-On, Space Harrier, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Altered Beast just to name a few. A remake of one of the Shinobi games seems like the next natural step.

For most people, Shinobi is that middling 3DS game that came out a couple of years ago, but to veteran gamers, this series was the reason most of them wanted to grow up to be a ninja. Released for Sega Genesis back in 1993, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master became the fan favorite of the series. It was even included in 2009’s Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection. The series had a small resurgence during the middle of the PS2 era, but it quickly faded again until the 3DS game came out in 2011.


About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?
