Everybody's favorite ninja is back, and this time he'll be hacking and slashing in three whole dimensions! SEGA announced today that Shinobi will be heading to the Nintendo 3DS in September of this very year!
"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."
Developed by Griptonite, Shinobi will tell the story of Jiro Musashi, the leader of the Oboro clan and father of Joe Musashi, the hero of the first Shinobi games. This game will have a brand new combo system that switches between melee, ranged and acrobatic attacks. And don't forget the ninja magic!
Shinobi will also include Street Pass functionality, although at this point, little is known about what exactly that will entail. We'll see if we can't dig up more about it at E3 for you guys.
