Shinobi Slicing on 3DS - Debut Trailer, First Details on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Update: Official trailer now up! Classic arcade ninja game Shinobi is returning to the 3DS. Debut teaser trailer awaits your eyes!

Original Story:
According to Nintendo Power classic arcade ninja game Shinobi is returning to the 3DS. Leaked, teaser trailer awaits your eyes!

New Details - Via Nintendo Power:
The latest issue of Nintendo Power magazine sheds the first details of the forthcoming series revival on the 3DS.

Shinobi 3DS will be a 2.5D side-scroller much like the classic games - go from left to right using your sword to break through an onslaught of enemies. It's not all about your katana as there'll be throwing knives and magic. Combos, wall jumping and grappling hooks are all your favourite ninja-esque mechanics helping your warrior explore, attack and evade the most deadly foes. You can even ride a horse through a forest!

The 3DS tale begins in Oboro Village, a peaceful town suddenly attacked by a mysterious enemy. Temples burn and you must combat fellow ninjas, samurai against the burning backdrop. Sail down a river, ascend a waterfall, wander into caves, climb treacherous mountains and finally battle a female warrior - all within the opening minutes!

Breaking up the action there'll be a 3D throwing star minigame. Bonus content and StreetPass will also be available.

Original Story:
The project was unearthed in a recent resume from environmental artist Branden Brushett, who works for Griptonite Games. Brushett "created whole levels for 'Shinobi' on the Nintendo 3DS, including many props for use in a variety of environments."

Since then the cover for the forthcoming Nintendo Power magazine mentions Shinobi alongside Mega Man Legends 3 as part of a "Revivals" feature, with a trailer "leaked" earlier today.

It appears to be an internal cut that's unfinished and just as it gets into the 3DS reveal it conveniently cuts off. SEGA refuses to comment, but promises something more official soon.

All we know for now from Brushett is that the new Shinobi will feature "hand painted and photo referenced textures".

Shinobi was once considered the Ninja action game, spawning multiple versions and even touched down with The Revenge of Shinobi for GameBoy Advance back in 2002.

PLEASE LET THIS BE REAL!! With a Ninja Gaiden title being made & this Metal Gear Solid, 2 Resident Evil titles, remakes of FF 5&6 among other projects....aweMAN not even the most stubborn Psycho SOny Only can refuse getting a Nintendo 3DS!

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

An assumption based on 3&4 being remastered for DS. I think...

Add me on anything. I'm always looking for new friends/opponents/town visitors/chances to appear more popular than I actually am.

Yeah sorry no confirmation from Square on that yet. There are Final Fantasy titles being made for it & Im not talking about the Chocobo Racing game, but as far as what their numeral is...not sure but Id be suprised if FF6 wasn't in the works since that was the last numbered FF to appear on Nintendo.

Holy crap, man! You almost gave me a heartattack there haha. One of my big dreams is to see a remake og that game. The again only if they keep the charm and atmosphere intact. And the 3DS would be perfect... Smilie
