Shinobi is Japanese for stealth, the perfect description of a Master Ninja. And that's exactly what you are! Armed with throwing stars and finely-honed battle skills, you must defeat the Ring of Five. Fight your way past mercenaries and karate thugs. Take out the meanest martial artists and rescue hostages. But these dangers pale in comparison to your ultimate challenge: A fight to the death against five evil Ninja Assassins whose mastery of the deadly ancient arts may well surpass your own!


Right-Most Tiles

In Sega System 16 titles the right-most column of tiles seems to be rendered a frame behind, resulting in odd tearing. This can be fixed by disabling Dual Core. Refer issue 10155. Fixed in 5.0-7714.


This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
