Shinobi III Enhancement Hack

Hack of Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master

Description:

This is an enhancement patch for the American version of Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master.

One of the biggest features this patch provides is the ability to emulate a “no-shuriken mode” as used in Shadow Dancer. You can lock and unlock the ability to throw shuriken in the pause menu at any time. In addition to adding interest to an already excellent game, this feature makes it much easier to get the more elusive bonuses.

Other major features include six-button-controller support and more flexible Hassou Shuriken (depicted in some of the screen shots below.)

  • Region lockout disabled.
  • Resetting the game no longer disrupts the display.
  • The Sega logo can now be skipped by pressing Start.
  • Minor textual changes, some ambiguities removed and non-standard spellings corrected.
  • Shuriken lock option added to pause window (press up/down).
  • Shuriken burst now respects the actual number of Shuriken remaining.
  • Shuriken burst is now configurable.
  • Ninjutsu selection is no longer blocked when out of Ninjutsu.
  • A couple of sound effects were put back into the options menu.
  • Character Editor reinstated, albeit with a different activation mechanism.
  • A real soft-reset feature was added to the Character Editor.
  • Six-button controller support enabled.
  • Added a code to raise the amount of Shuriken allowed in-play simultaneously.
  • A fix was added to emulate the European version when in PAL mode.

Please see the readme file for more information.

Best Shinobi 3 Hack! One of the Best Hacks Period!

Reviewed By: ShinobiWannabe on 21 Oct 2017

Best Hack of Shinobi 3! If anyone re-released this game I would want something like this! Extremely well done hack. I highly recommend this if you like this game!

You can also use the slash move to destroy most projectiles which is something you really cannot take into account normally but with this you can.

The only thing I would want modified would be if you could hold any of the attack buttons and then it would block like normal. Since holding the attack button does nothing anyway. Instead of having to move a finger it would be on the same position.

Just uploaded a run on this to Youtube on Expert. Breathed new life into a game I love. Thanks!
