Shinobi (3DS)

Shinobi is the long anticipated return of SEGA's fan-favorite series, bringing to Nintendo 3DS the classic side-scrolling action gameplay players have loved since the original.

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.

Picked this up at Wal-Mart for about 5 bucks. Worth it. Interesting game, the 3D is actually utilized really well in this title. The game is unforgivingly difficult though, which I kind of like, if you screw up it's your fault and not the game.
