Shinobi

The latest PlayStation Plus benefits are an eclectic bunch, but fighting game fans in particular should have a good week in store. As described on the PlayStation Blog, Plus members will be able to nab The King of Fighters XI...
Before the Game Boy, handheld gaming was dominated by LCD electronic devices, most famously the Game & Watch line. Each device was dedicated to playing a single game in the crudest way imaginable -- all possible object l...
This is not an announcement that Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is being renamed Gilius Thunderhead & All-Stars Racing Transformed. I wish, because Gilius Thunderhead is the greatest Sega character of all time, ...
When the 3DS eShop was first announced, we were promised more than just Nintendo systems. Naturally, nothing came of that pledge in North America for months and months, until now. According to the ESRB, Game Gear games are fi...


It has been nearly 10 years since we were last put into the sandals of an Oboro Clan shinobi, the last game of which was well received despite (or perhaps because of) its high difficulty. Though it brought the series into the...
The Shinobi games were really good. The new trailer for Shinobi 3DS, "History of a Franchise," details  what made the games so good and what developer Griptonite is focusing on to maintain that history.  Also, the game's out now. If you own a 3DS, you might need to go check it out. I know it's on my list of pre-2012 purchases. 
Shinobi's 3DS outing will have Streetpass functionality that brings extra challenge gameplay to the table. It's all detailed in the above trailer, which helpfully spells it all our for us. Good going, SEGA! I was e...

My love for Shinobi is palpable. I had one of those six-in-one Genesis cartridges as a kid, and The Revenge of Shinobi was one of the most played titles on the collection. I was never a big fan of the series' move to 3D last ...
[Update: God damn it, SEGA! We have been asked to take this video down because apparently it's wrong or something. Because I am nice and honorable like Jesus Christ, I am complying. Apparently a better trailer is coming next ...
The rumors are true! Sega's Shinobi franchise is making its return this fall with the cleverly titled Shinobi 3DS. Not a port or a remake, the title is being built from the ground up for the Nintendo 3DS with developer Gripto...
Don't believe the filthy lies! Rumors of Sonic Generations and a new Shinobi coming to the 3DS are totally unsubstantiated... oh? They're on the cover of Nintendo Power? Well... alrighty then. The upcoming issue puts rest to ...
According to the resume of an environment artist, a brand new game based on the Shinobi license is coming to Nintendo's 3DS. Now that is something I want to see.  Griptonite Games, a studio known mostly for portable lice...
