Sega's Shinobi series, which has helped action platformer fans hone their ninja skills in arcades and a variety of home consoles since 1987, looks to be coming to 3DS.

An online CV of an environment artist at Griptonite Games mentions Shinobi 3DS as their current project. The resumé states that the artist has:

...created whole levels for 'Shinobi' on the Nintendo 3DS, including many props for use in a variety of environments.

Griptonite's previous projects include the DS version of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, the PSP title Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines and the upcoming Wii/DS/3DS game Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters.
