New game blends Sonic with Shinobi

Over the years, Sonic has influenced a great deal of titles such as Aero the Acrobat, Awesome Possum, and Bubsy.  Independent developer Open Emotions has stated their intentions to release Ninjamurai, a game they describe as “Shinobi meets Sonic“.  Players take control of a ninja samurai as he battles his way through the game’s four zones. The game is due out this May on the PSP.

I definitely notice Sonic’s speed and Shinobi’s combat.  Is Ninjamurai a game that might hold you over until a new 2D Shinobi game is released?

    Was this trailer made using a camcorder because it’s a PSN game and yet it looks like it was video footage from the iPhone. Either way, it looks kind of cool.

    At first glance it doesn’t look too impressive, but then I remembered that I’ve played through Shinobi on the Master System MANY times and loved every bit of it.

    So maybe it’s worth shaking a stick at

    Good eye! Lol. According to Open Emotions’ Youtube page, parts of this trailer were shot on an iPhone.
