SEGA Tunes: Shinobi III’s Idaten

Tonight’s tune is from Shinobi 3, one of the best games on the Genesis. You should check it out if you haven’t already. It’s got a lot of great action and an awesome soundtrack. Idaten comes from a stage anyone who’s played the game will surely remember: the one where you ride the horse and kill flying ninjas. Doesn’t this just make you want to play it again?

Also, just for the hell of it, I stuck something else below the fold, a little tune called Whirlwind. Take a listen.
