SEGA has provided more details regarding the next entry in the SEGA Ages series, Sega Ages: Shinobi. The iconic game is due out soon via the Nintendo Switch eShop like previous entries in the lineup. It will be coming to Japan first and is simply listed as “coming soon.” However, here’s what you need to know about the Nintendo Switch version of the game:
Additional Options Unique to Sega Ages
The Sega Ages version of Shinobi also includes the western version of the game. Additionally, difficulty settings and the ability to select your favorite stages have also been implemented, allowing you to practice the stages you have trouble with.
Furthermore, for players aiming for the “Shinobi Bonus” obtained by clearing the stage without using any shuriken, the “Melee Attack” button can also be added. “HD Rumble” is also supported.
“Screen Mode” has also been updated. In addition to the familiar “Fit” and “Vintage” options, a new “Cabinet” option has been implemented. This option even reproduces the noise of the arcade, so you can get a sense of what playing at a game center feels like.
Other familiar Sega Ages features such as “Leaderboards” to compete for the high score against other players online in the arcade version, and a “Replay” feature have also been implemented.
