The Shinobi series last made an appearance in 2003 with Nightshade for the PS2. Needless to say, a new entry is long overdue. Not only will the series return this September with Griptonite Games’ Shinobi for the 3DS, but it’s a prequel of sorts, focusing on the father of the series’ original protagonist Joe Musashi. As Jiro Musashi, players will be able to utilize a new combo system that includes “melee, ranged and acrobatic attacks” as well as a bit of magic.
Ah, what would a ninja do without magic? Probably not explode as much.
