Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master Is On iTunes


If you owned a Sega Genesis or have any interest in Sega’s 16-bit games, you’ve probably heard of the Shinobi series. Before it went 3D on the PlayStation 2, Shinobi was a series of fast-paced, side-scrolling ninja action games.


The last Shinobi game on the Genesis was Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master. This past week, Sega published Shinobi III on iTunes. In case you don’t already own it on the Virtual Console or as part of the Sega Genesis Collection on the PlayStation 2 or PSP, you can pick it up for $2.99.
