Shinobi Coming To 3DS

It has been announced by SEGA that Shinobi, one of the original trifecta of flagship properties from the late 80’s and early 90’s that Sega had ((Alex Kidd and Sonic were the other two)) is ending a nine year absence – Nightshade doesn’t count –  from gaming to return as simply Shinobi 3DS. While no official release date has been given, September is flying round as the most likely time.

While not much information has been released, the gameplay looks nigh identical to the old-school Shinobi trilogy with updated graphics. From the trailer, it seems that the new 2.5 plane – 2D gameplay with 3D graphics – will be used to keep the feel of the game similar to nostalgic memories. Is this a game, alongside Ocarina of Time, that is enough to tempt you to buy a 3DS?
