I love Shinobi, the original 1987 arcade game, more than almost any other video game created since. Yes, I'm serious. So I'm probably atypically excited that Joe Musashi from Sega's arcade classic is unlockable in Griptonite's Shinobi for 3DS.
Ignore that this is a 3D game for Nintendo's latest portable. Ignore that it's been nearly a decade since we've seen a new title staring Joe Musashi. Embrace, instead, the fact that this is a Shinobi that fans of the 1987 side-scrolling arcade game may recognize and could come to love.
