    SEGA has announced that a new Shinobi game will be coming to the 3DS this year. Developed by Griptonite Games, Shinobi 3DS is a 2.5D platformer (sidescroller with polygonal graphics) with a rather striking art style. Shinobi stars Jiro Musashi, leader of the Oboro clan and father of Joe Musashi, previous Shinobi player character. This new Shinobi will implement a brand new combo system which will require you to alternate between melee, ranged and acrobatic attacks. Jiro also has access to various magic powers during the game. The first gameplay trailer can be seen below, along with the original official PR below that. Though not pushing the 3DS very much graphically, the game has a slick art style to compensate and is action packed. [/p]

    Now that looks good.
    Also, I didn't realise I played the game before, but I have.

    it seems a lot of classic will be revived with the 3ds so we may see many snes/genesis titles continuing on the 3ds...
    *Gets revelation* chrono..... trigger....

    Personally I'd like to see a full 3D remake on the consoles, but that's just my opinion.

    If this would have been for nintendo DS, it would have been great!

    This game looks so simple for what the 3DS can handle.

    This video is no longer available due to a copyrights claim by SEGA of America.

    I remember playing one of the Shinobi games on the Genesis when I was younger, it was on one of those 5-in-1 carts. Really fun, but I never made it too far. Streets of Rage on the other hand...

    Oddly enough, the response to this news has been very pessimistic over on NeoGAF, but I think it looks great. I'm excited.

    The graphics.....I've seen DS games with better graphics than this, I hope they have some explanation into giving a crappy looking game.

    At first, I was like "wow, shinobi is coming back"

    Then, I saw the trailer, and was disappointed by how the game looks... It looks very stiff.. why? [​IMG]

    So sad to remember how great the Shinobi games were...I cant believe how sega let the series die so miserably...Revenge of Shinobi and Shinobi 3 on the Genesis was the pinnacle of the series, and it was ages back on the good ol' Genesis....I still have my Revenge and Shinobi3 carts lying around....

    I wouldn't say it's worse than DS, give me a DS game using fully 3D graphics that looks on par or better than this (not an insult, if there exists one, please show me) and i'll concede that you're right. Looks like an early gen PSP game or something. Certainly not up to spec with 3DS hardware, but at least the art style covers up SOME of the ugliness. Still disappointing that some developers always choose the easy way out.

    Fixed the video with another one. Hopefully won't be blocked.

    While I did grow up with Revenge, Shinobi 3's better in my opinion. The movement of Revenge were just terrible, made it a lot harder that I was expecting as a kid, but 3 was more fluid and controllable (and just downright cool).

    Shinobi is excellent on the Master System and Genesis, so this game should probably be 2.5 times as good due to the 2.5D graphix! [​IMG]
