The Revenge of Shinobi joins SEGA Forever

The Revenge of Shinobi comes to SEGA Forever’s mobile line-up. This is a new “censored version” that has been around since the SEGA Vintage Collection era, which changes Joe Musashi’s face in the title screen due to the face basically resembling Sonny Chiba. Some hardcore fans take issue with this change because the original ‘Sonny Chiba copied face’ seems angry and bold while the edited version of Joe Musashi looks rather sad. Its also funny to note that the SEGA Forever trailer above even makes a joke about it being changed.  You can see bothf faces below (Left original, right the new one):


The Revenge of Shinobi isn’t new to censorship, considering that the game has been heavily changed in the past due to copyright infringement on popular IPs such as Godzillia, Spiderman and even Batman. The Revenge of Shinobi is considered to be one of the best sequels of all time, adding much more depth than the original arcade Shinobi ever had. The Revenge of Shinobi also featured a critically acclaimed soundtrack by Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage series) which should be enough to download and try it. The only thing is, have they fixed the audio in the emulation? Like all SEGA Forever titles, the game is free to play with ads and $1.99 to keep ad-free forever.

    I’ll be honest, I can’t IMAGINE getting used to that double-jump on a touch screen, but I’ll definitely download and fumble my way through it as a show for support.

    Love the concept, but we’re still running off the fuel of promise rather than reality at this point.

    I checked it out and it’s extremely laggy with audio popping and also when moving. I’m using an iPhone 6s, so I don’t know if that’s the problem or it’s all-around.

    I would so love to see Shinobi in a video game style just like the 1st and 2nd Ninja Gaiden games that recently came out a few years ago, but it would have to be Joe Musashi in the game.
