Classic collectors rejoice: we’re teaming up with Limited Run Games to reprint some of Natsume’s classic titles on REAL cartridges! Dust off those classic systems – we’ve got some hot games coming your way, and pre-orders are open RIGHT NOW!
First up is the NES classic, SHADOW OF THE NINJA (also known as Blue Shadow in PAL territories). This is a working cartridge, playable on both classic NES systems and compatible clone consoles! Both a standard edition (click me!) and collector’s edition (click me!) are available to pre-order for just one month.
Shadow of the Ninja was one of the first NES games with a female character, including co-op multiplayer games! It’s 2029, and an evil emperor has taken over the USA! Join Lord Hayate and Lady Kaede of the Iga clan as they infiltrate his secret hideout to assassinate Garuda and end his evil reign for good.
If you haven’t experienced this tough-as-nails sidescroller, now you’ll have the opportunity to do so!
Second up is the spiritual successor released on GBC, RETURN OF THE NINJA! This is a working cartridge, playable on both classic GBC systems and compatible clone consoles! Both a standard edition (click me!) and collector’s edition (click me!) are available to pre-order for just one month.
It’s up to Lord Tsukikage and Lady Saiyuri to once again save the world! The once-honorable Iga clan, whom the mighty heroes of Shadow of the Ninja belonged to, has fallen to the side of darkness. Evil clan members have stolen a secret scroll and intend to use it to bring war upon the earth! Use ancient ninja techniques and master the five elements to be sure this plan never comes to fruition.
This challenging sidescroller had a small release back in 2001, but two decaides later you’ll have the opportunity to grab a real physical copy!
Pre-orders for both titles open Friday, November 27th and end on December 27th at 11:59pm Eastern Time. Curious about how Limited Run Games pre-orders work? We have a FAQ right here.
