Sega today announced the return of Shinobi after 8 years of being absent from the gaming world. Shinobi will be released on the Nintendo 3DS in Sept 2011 and will feature the classic side-scrolling action gameplay fans remember.
Shinobi tells the story of Jiro Musashi, the leader of the Oboro clan and father of Joe Musashi, the hero of the first iterations of Shinobi. Players will become a true ninja legend by mastering a brand new combo system 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.
