Joe Musashi returns in what is arguably the best ninja game ever
There’s a common assumption that a console’s best titles come towards the end of its lifespan. This is mainly because developers take time to get to grips with a new machine’s power and as a result you have to wait a couple of years before you see what each console is truly...
Ghouls 'n Ghosts and more!
Nintendo has just added four more games to the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive app for the Switch Online Expansion Pack service. The latest editions include The Revenge of Shinobi, Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Landstalker, and Crusader of Centy. The Revenge of Shinobi is no
“That wasn’t my suggestion”
Yuzo Koshiro is arguably one of the most famous composers of video game music in the world thanks to his incredible work on the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive and, more recently, for his sterling efforts on franchises such as Atlus’ Etrian Odyssey. While Koshiro’s tunes for titles like Revenge of Shinobi, ActRaiser...
"I wish we had more power..."
When you think of the Shinobi series, it's hard not to think also of the legendary composer Yuzo Koshiro – despite the fact that his music is only featured in a handful of the Shinobi games. Koshiro's soundtrack to Revenge of Shinobi / Super Shinobi remains one of the best on the Genesis / Mega Drive, which is made...
The complete history of Sega's nimble ninja
Sega's classic arcade game Shinobi wowed ninja fans back in 1987; with its addictive fast-paced action and great atmosphere it was only a matter of time before it got ported to pretty much every home format under the sun - including the NES and the Master System. The Revenge of Shinobi was released early...
Nintendo of America does a bit of catching up.
There's nothing really unexpected this week - Except for the fact that it seems LucasArts won't be releasing their Super Star Wars games in consecutive weeks, as there's no new one this time. Four of today's five new games have already been released in Europe, so we've already got reviews ready. The...
Peter Parker might have something to say about this!
Hardcore SEGA fans will no doubt be aware that The Revenge of Shinobi on the Mega Drive / Genesis had a few different incarnations during its lifetime due to copyright issues. It’s a proud person who still owns the original Mega Drive cart which features boss characters such as The Hulk, The...
Zoonami's hairdressing game is finally out, and it's accompanied by Sega's awesome ninja game. Oh, and some city maps.
After skipping a week, the Official Nintendo Magazine has once again revealed the Wii/DSi updates in advance. As promised a while ago, today finally sees the European release of Bonsai Barber. Accompanying it is a single Virtual...
Expect more Final Fight, Phantasy Star and Shinobi in the near future.
The OFLC had a decently-sized update today, in which they added some new games rated in the past few weeks. These ratings have revealed a few new VC games for future release in PAL regions. First up is Final Fight 2, the second in the Final Fight series which was, and still is,...
Even Japan seems to be getting less and less VC games - Only 7 games will be released in March! There's two surprises this time - One's a great game which was thought to be stuck in licensing hell, while the other's a legendary Japan-only game which is commonly thought to be one of the worst games ever made!
The full list is as follows: Famicom:...
