Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master™

Innumerable arcade games were released in the 80s. Many of them turned out to be huge successes. That is why many sequels were released to various games. These sequels provided the players with better gameplay than their previous versions.

“Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master™” is an action arcade video game released in 1993. It is the direct sequel of the 1989 game “The Revenge of Shinobi” and the 1987 game “Shinobi.” The sequel offers a higher level of difficulty and a different objective than the original game. The main character of the series is Joe Musashi, who fights against crime.

The Gameplay

The gameplay involves the player controlling the character of Joe Musashi to stop the evil crime syndicate Neo Zeed. Neo Zeed is threatening the world once more. The evil criminal—thought to have been vanquished two years earlier—has returned, headed by a man known only as the Shadow Master. Joe Musashi has felt their presence, and descends from the lonely mountaintops of Japan to face his arch-nemesis once more.

Compared to its predecessor “The Revenge of Shinobi”, the action in Shinobi III™ is considerably smoother, with less emphasis on difficulty and more on speed. In addition to the ability to run from place to place, Joe comes equipped with a new array of moves and techniques, including a mid-air dash kick, the ability to jump-scale walls, and a powerful running slash that renders him temporarily invincible.


Besides his regular assortment of moves and attacks, Shinobi has the ability to perform four special “ninjitsu” techniques. Only one can be used in each level, unless an additional bonus is picked up from defeating difficult enemy bosses throughout hidden spots in the level. The four ninjitsu techniques employed by Joe Musashi involve engulfing lightning as a temporary shield, summoning fire-dragons, boosting his vertical leap, and self-sacrificing.

Difficulty Levels

There are 7 levels in the game. The player has to defeat the boss at the end of each level to move on.

Interface and Controls

Use the arrow keys to move your character and a control button to perform various actions.

Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master™ is an excellent sequel. It is better than the previous games in the series which makes it a very exciting and enjoyable game to play.
