NES Game ‘Shadow of the Ninja’ Now Available for Wii U and 3DS Virtual Console

Last week S.C.A.T. was made available on the Virtual Console., but this week comes something a little less dirty. Shadow of the Ninja first came out in 1990 for the NES and featured solo and co-op ninja action. You’ll once again be able to slice, dice and shuriken all your opponents which range from soldiers to robots. Disappear into the shadows to evade enemy detection.

Shadow of the Ninja will be priced at 500 Wii Points. Check out the description and trailer below:

“Get ready for furious side-scrolling, platforming ninja action! The mad emperor, Garuda, holds the city trapped in his diabolical claws. Only two brave ninja warriors dare to stand against him. They move as silently as shadows in the snow, swift and graceful as the wind, and strike with the explosive fury of razor-clawed tigers!

Playing solo or co-op with a friend, you’ll slice, bomb, and shuriken your way through Garuda’s army of vicious soldiers, agile ninjas, and monstrous robots. Use your ninja skills to hang from moving platforms, leap over lethal pitfalls, and dodge diabolical traps. Collect deadly powerups to give yourself an edge against the overwhelming odds that face you…if you can hold on to them. It’ll take all of your platforming prowess to navigate the game’s thirteen intense levels and bring some old-fashioned ninja justice to Garuda!”
