Maru’s Mission introduced the Ninja Jajamaru series to North America, but if you glanced at the game you wouldn’t know it had anything to do with ninjas. The North American cover art has Ash Ketchum with a hoodie and walkman fighting a green monster. In Maru’s Mission, you’ll beat up legendary monsters like Dracula, the Wolfman, and Medusa.
Fun fact: Ninja Jajamaru inspired the Robot Haggleman mini-games in Retro Game Challenge. Now you can try one of the original titles from the series by downloading Maru’s Mission for $3 off the Nintendo eShop.
