> The Sega Saturn's Shin Shinobi Den / Shinobi Legions (1995) was the last
Shinobi to reach consoles. As any Sega Fan knows, Sega is reaching
back into their archives for Shinobi, which originated on the Master System.
Given the simple title, it would seem that another new series is to begin
with this PSX2 installment. It's not Musashi anymore either... meet
> Set in a dark, futuristic Tokyo, your mission is revenge against a rival
ninja clan. Naturally, Hotsuma has an array of attacks at his disposal,
including Katana, Shuriken, and Ninjitsu. Stealth moves, lock-on
attacks, and wall clinging will be part of your ninja training as well.
Now all we need is a sweet soundtrack... Yuzo! Where are you?
Make sure to check out Hotsuma's radd ninja scarf in the pix below!
> I consider myself a Ninjitsu Master, as I've been enjoying ninja action
games on Sega consoles since 1986. The newest Shinobi looks great,
and might just get the massketeers thinking... I can't wait to play
Shinobi on PSX2.
