Ninja JaJaMaru-kun (Wii Virtual Console / NES)

Game Profile

Ninja JaJaMaru-kun (meaning 'determined little ninja') was originally released for the Japanese Famicom (NES) in Japan in 1985. This action game features a ninja called JaJaMaru, who uses his shuriken (ninja throwing stars) to defeat monsters and save Princess Sakura from the evil Lord Namazu Dayuu.

Use special items to aid your quest (including a giant frog that you can ride!) as you fight across multiple stages filled with uniquely Japanese ghosts and monsters. Now you can enjoy this classic action game for the first time outside Japan, here on Virtual Console.

This action game features a ninja called JaJaMaru, who uses his shuriken to defeat monsters and save Princess Sakura from the evil Lord Namazu Dayuu.

Of all the Japan-only games to be given new life on the Virtual Console, Nintendo, oddly enough, picked this one. While on the surface it looks like another not-very-good arcade game, it's actually quite fun.You play as red ninja JaJaMaru-kun whose goal...

All we can say for now is that the Australian Wii will get this game eventually as it is OFLC rated. Therefore Europe should get it and there is a good chance the USA will also.

Why are people reviewing games they haven't downloaded? A one star review from someone who hasn't played a game is worthless - don't bother posting it.

Pocketim, ninja related games was somewhat of a fad during the eighties. There are quite a number of ninja related games.

This one is fun for a few minutes and then begins to lose steam quickly. Very redundant and the hit detection could have been a lot better.
