    Default Shinobi?

    How many Shinobi games are there? I'm new to the series and only have the new Shinobi for the nintendo 3DS. How long has Shinobi been around?

    There's quite a few. The series has been going since 1987. Naturally with such a long running series some of the games are great, some aren't.

    It's hard to give an exact number on how many games there are since some of the ports of the earlier games play entirely differently from each other and one particularly bad GBA game shares its name (and nothing else) with one of the best on the Mega Drive.

    If you want to find out more about the series there's a three part retrospective on the Sega Blog and an excellent article about the whole series on HG101.

    1987? Really a long time ago.

    As far as I know...

    Shinobi (Arcade)
    Shinobi (MS)
    Shadow Dancer (Gen)
    Revenge of Shinobi (Gen)
    Shinobi III (Gen)
    Shinobi (GG)
    Shinobi 2 (GG)
    Cyber Shinobi (MS or GG)
    Shinobi (PS2)
    Nightshade (PS2)
    Shinobi 3DS

    I might be missing one or two, but I think these are the most important ones.

    There is also Shinobi Legions on (Sega Saturn), Alex Kidd in Shinobi World (if this one counts, SMS) and a scattered version on GBA (not very good) most of the other ones are at least 7 to 10 rated.

    To update Shihe's list

    Shinobi (Arcade) -9
    Shinobi (MS) -8
    Cyber Shinobi (MS or GG) -3
    Revenge of Shinobi (Gen) -9
    Alex Kidd in Shinobi World (MS) -7
    Shadow Dancer (Arcade) -10
    Shadow Dancer (Gen) -10
    Shinobi (GG) -8
    Shinobi III (Gen) -10
    Shinobi 2 (GG) -8
    Shinobi Legions (Sat) -7
    Shinobi (Game Boy) -3
    Shinobi (PS2) -7
    Nightshade (PS2) -8
    Shinobi 3DS (havent played it)

    That should be all of them....
