“DESTROY THE ENEMY NINJA GROUP”
Heavily inspired by Namco’s Rolling Thunder, SEGA launched its cool, ninja-based response 35 years ago, in 1987. Leon, Michiel, Rich and returning guest Ben Cartlidge shimmy to the Shinobi groove, examining AM1’s walk and slice platforming action. The panel also discusses the differences between the original coin-op and the official Master System conversion, and takes a quick look at the other versions and conversions released from 1988 to 2020.
