I couldn't watched the video right now in my office,
but is it more complete than the Harcoregaming101 article?
Since the article even included the two Asian mobile version games.

Edit : Just watched it. Ok, it's more complete since it contains  The LCD version of Shinobi.

Indeed. It would have been cool to have a two-pack that contained the original arcade Shinobi and the arcade Shadow Dancer for the Genesis, or to be arcade-perfect, the Saturn.

The Master System version of Shadow Dancer is actually quite faithful to the arcade version. Unfortunately it omits some of the stages, probably in order to squeeze it into a two mega cartridge. But the sprites and backgrounds seem to be adapted directly from the coin-op.

Honestly, I'd never heard of the game 'Shadow Dancer' until the spring of 1990.  I first learned of Shadow Dancer's existence
where I read a question about it published in EGM's Interface: Letters To The Editor.
