Shinobi (2002) available for download on US PlayStation Store


The 2002 PlayStation 2 continuation of the popular Shinobi franchise has been released today on the North American PlayStation Store for 10 USD as part of the PlayStation 2 Classics lineup of games. Although part of the same world as the legendary SEGA series of games, the story and setting focus on the character Hotsuma in a much darker, story-driven plot and are unrelated to the games featuring Joe Musashi, although he is an unlockable playable character.

Considered one of the hardest games SEGA released last console generation, Shinobi was released earlier this year on the European PlayStation Network. A sequel titled Nightshade exists, but SEGA has not commented on if it will see a release on the download platform.
