Sega Reveals Shinobi For Nintendo 3DS
The way of the ninja, now in glasses free 3D.
Today, Sega made it official.
The company pulled back the curtain on Shinobi, the latest entry in the beloved ninja series, coming to Nintendo's system September 2011.
"For years the fans have been asking for a new Shinobi," said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing of SEGA West. "With Shinobi on Nintendo 3DS we are able to answer their prayers and bring this legendary series to the next level."
This new chapter, currently in development at Griptonite Games, follows Jiro Musashi, the leader of the Oboro clan and father of Joe Musashi, Shinobi's original hero. Players will switch between melee, ranged and acrobatic attacks, then unleash powerful ninja magic to destroy their foes.
In addition, the game will also have achievements and Street Pass support, though it remains to be seen how Sega and the developers plan to use this feature.
Based on the screens and short snippets of footage, the game looks surprisingly limited graphically. Watch the trailer and let us know what you think.
