So glad SEGA are keeping this series alive. Griptonite have done some good stuff in the past; I just hope they give this the full treatment.
I am so GLAD that they're going for 2D gameplay with cinematic, 3D angles. This looks like it could be the Shinobi game we wanted Shinobi Legions and the Shinobi reboot to be. Personally, I think Revenge of Shinobi is the best Shinobi game of all time. I'd love to see that get remade on the 3DS or as an HD Live/PSN title. If Shinobi were getting an update with a fully 3D environment, it'd probably just end up being a God of War clone. This game, OTOH, looks like something that was made for the fans of the original game. That's always a good thing. I've been wrong before but I have a hunch we're going to be seeing some good reviews for this game, when it hits store shelves. The only thing I can think of that could make this game any more appealing is if they included co-op multiplayer. It'd be sweet to play a Shinobi game with a ninja buddy. And I hope it has the giant dinosaur boss from R.O.S.
Finally an awesome game from SEGA... it's been too long. They used to make all games awesome, but with the last few games aside from Vanquish which I only heard was great, most of them have tanked. If this is anything like Shinobi 3 on the Sega Genesis this it will be one of my favorite games of all time!! Fingers crossed that the game is like S3 and the video I just saw. SEGA's getting back to awesome. :)
