Griptonite Games was given the task of re-imagining Shinobi… again. The studio decided on a 2.5D side-scrolling action game where players leap on missiles to reach a slice a helicopter and fight enemies on the wings of a flying plane.
Not seen in the trailer are unlockable achievements, challenges, and Streetpass support.
“For years the fans have been asking for a new Shinobi,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing of Sega West. “With Shinobi on Nintendo 3DS we are able to answer their prayers and bring this legendary series to the next level.”
