Ninja Gaiden III - Restored

Hack of Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom

Description:

The US version of Ninja Gaiden 3 is inferior to the Japanese version in 3 ways. Unless you really want a challenge I suppose. Greatly increased damage from all hazards, limit of 5 continues, and no password system. My previous patch addressed the first two problems, fixed the damage and you never run out of continues. This patch finally tackles the final piece, passwords.

The US version had all password program code removed. So I started from scratch and devised my own password program code. It works well, and the passwords match the Japanese version’s passwords. This finally is the definite version of NG3 to play. The original US release and Ninja Gaiden Trilogy release all have drawbacks to the Japanese version, and this patch is on par with the Japanese version, or better since it is in English.

A hack that transform the difficulty from Hard to Normal Mode

Reviewed By: Cupshadow on 07 Feb 2021

Seeing how the developer release the USA version next month after the original release in Japan. I can see how they made it much harder.

If you have a problem with the damage and other item placement in this game, Then this hack will fix the damage on this game. However, Spike damage still deal 6 damage instead 3 damage.

Another thing that they change is the limited continue which only has 5 chance to continue. Although there’s a cheat to fix it that grant you 99 continues.

While the checkpoint and other aspects is not restored, It’s not a big issue since having the checkpoint could make the game a bit easy.
