Shinobi officially announced for 3DS

Thursday, 26th May 2011 16:26 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

SEGA has officially announced Shinobi exclusively for 3DS and development from Griptonite Games. It was leaked earlier in the week.

Shinobi includes the classic side-scrolling action gameplay from the series and tells the story of Jiro Musashi, the leader of the Oboro clan.

Players will become a “true ninja legend” by using the brand new combo system which allows them to switching between melee, ranged and acrobatic attacks. They will also need to “rely on Jiro’s ninja magic” to get an advantage over their enemies and “get out of tight spots.”

“For years the fans have been asking for a new Shinobi,” said Gary Knight, SVP of marketing at SEGA West. “With Shinobi on Nintendo 3DS we are able to answer their prayers and bring this legendary series to the next level.”

Shinobi will be released for Nintendo 3DS in September and includes StreetPass along with Achievements and challenges to unlock.

    Its almost 10 years since the last Shinobi game, they could have made it look like a 3DS game rather than a DS game.

    Not feeling the visual style, here, either. :| But it is a 2.5D platformer, as I’d hoped, so there may still be something to it. I’ll be waiting for some reviews from trusted sources.
