3D Shinobi III, called 3D The Super Shinobi II (3D ザ・スーパー忍II) in Japan, is an enhanced version of Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master for the Nintendo 3DS and is part of M2's 3D Classics range.

The game is available internationally on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, or as part of the Sega 3D Fukkoku Archives compilation in Japan.

Additional Features

As with many games in the 3D Classics line, 3D Shinobi III comes with a number of features not present in the original Mega Drive release; namely stereoscopic 3D, a filter to emulate the look of older televisions, the choice of playing the Japanese or International versions, and a level select option.

The game also has customizable controls and an expert ninja mode, where the block and sword slash moves are mapped to their own buttons, instead of depending on context like in the original release.
