La saga Shinobi, which will celebrate its 25 years next November, is a series that I particularly since its first episode on the Master System to the Saturn version kitchissime. I must admit that everything that followed these securities is relatively uninteresting for me.
Obviously the best for me are 3 episodes appeared on the Megadrive : The Super Shinobi (Revenge of Shinobi) and his unforgettable compositions Yuzo Koshiro, The Super Shinobi II (Shinobi III home) and Shadow Dancer.
BUT ! Do not forget the original, and especially very good episodes Gamegear the conduct “Megamanesque”.
The first Shinobi that I will present is nothing but a Hack GG Shinobi au format Master System.
This hack a game came from the Gamegear, part of a short list of titles have been literally carried on the console Sega 8bit Lounge (others are : Hook, NBA Jam, GG Aleste 2, Pacman, Rygar, Sonic Drift Racing, Sonic Triple Trouble et Woody Pop). Palette downgraded, hack you bouton start, fix bugs related to different screen resolution… it is far from simple conversion.
In the end I'm really happy to find this excellent GG Shinobi on my TV, because admittedly the Gamegear console is aging rather badly. Note that the jacket comes from GG Shinobi II which I hope will one day focused on SMS in the same way.
Then it is 2 Korean small acquisitions in recent months : Shinobi et The Super Shinobi en version Samsung !
Shinobi – Sinobi Samsung Gam*Boy
The Super Shinobi – Detroit Super City Samsung Super Gam*Boy (the cartridge contains a REV00 !)
To close this ticket, I would like to present a project carried out by a crazy Japanese : Gamegear console Salon ! Enjoy the attention to detail on the console and controller, and even the box was redone ! It is so beautiful that one would want to be well. Unfortunately they are not for sale.
