About The Game
Easy to play, hard to master: Shadow Dancer is the sequel to the original Shinobi arcade game and is one of the only games in the Shinobi series to feature true arcade-style gameplay.

This battle is not one Musashi must fight alone, as this is the first game in the Shinobi series to feature Musashi's ninja attack dog, Yamato, who will charge at foes on command and leave them open to attack. Use your mastery of ancient ninja techniques to topple the Neo Zeed crime syndicate and free the hostages in New York City.
Good luck, and may the ninja spirits guide you in your journey!
