I had ALMOST forgotten how crappy Tiger LCD games were

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...

E3: Gilius Thunderhead & All-Stars Racing Transformed

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, ...

Game Gear games finally rated for 3DS

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...

Review: Shinobi (3DS) photo
Review: Shinobi (3DS)
by Darren Nakamura

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 third dimension, its gameplay hearkened back to a simpler time when health didn't regenerate and levels had to be obsessively studied in order to be conquered.

On the 3DS, Shinobi returns to the 2D sidescrolling roots that popularized the series more than 20 years ago. Staying true to its legacy, this latest entry maintains a lot of the old-school game philosophy, though developer Griptonite Games has added a lot of the new-school fluff that gamers today appreciate. Whether anybody gets to experience the bonus content depends on how much pain they are willing to endure.

Griptonite Games explores the history of Shinobi

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.

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 generation, so when I heard about a sidescrolling 3DS version, I exploded with joy. 

I got to try the game out on the E3 showfloor and, while the game is no great stunning revelation, it certainly looks capable of providing a decent -- and challenging -- ninja experience.

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 Griptonite Games at the helm.

I recently jumped, slashed, and ninja magic-ed my way through the game's first stage, giving me an early peek at what's in store for our brave, portable shinobi. It apparently involves an enormous robot shark, at some point. Have I got your attention yet?

Rumor: New Shinobi coming to Nintendo 3DS
