Ninjas are almost as overused as zombies in videogames. Not that I’m complaining, I love a good ninja. They lend themselves perfectly to the medium though. The stealthiness, the striking costume, the array of gadgets and deadly weaponry. It’s almost as if ninjas were always meant to be game protagonists.
Shinobi was one of the very first and now he’s sneaking back in the shape of this 3DS reboot from Sega.
Shinobi is out right now in the EU and will hit US stores on November 15th.
