Today HAMSTER has released the Arcade version of Ninja Gaiden on the Switch and PlayStation 4 consoles. This version is more of a beat em up, which is very different from the NES classic we grew up with.

NINJA GAIDEN is an action game released by Tecmo Co., Ltd. in 1989. Play as a ninja using the Five Ninja Fighting Arts passed on from the chaotic times of feudal Japan, as you take out an assassin organization through the horrifying stage “Jungle,” an American city. Perform a Phoenix Backflip off of obstacles or walls to land behind enemies and then defeat them with a Triple Blow Combination or Flying Neck Throw.

The game will set you back $7.99 on either PSN or the eShop and is for 1 or 2 players.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
