I’ve been a fan of the series since I first played the Shinobi games on my Game Gear and the penultimate Shinobi game for me being Shinobi 3 for the Genesis. Ever since they tried to revive the series after Legions with that 3D disaster for PS2 I never thought I’d see them do Shinobi justice again. Along comes Shinobi for the 3DS, while its not an 100% return to its 2D roots it does pay homage to the 2D games for the Genesis and Game Gear. Now, if only I had a 3DS I would definitely check this out when it comes out. For now I can only hope it plays as well as it looks in the trailers.
