The Cyber Shinobi is a Sega Master System game released in 1990 by Sega. It is a sequel to Shinobi, set in the future time of "2XXX", where the grandson of Joe Musashi must defeat the evil Cyber Zeed terrorist organisation who stole massive amounts of plutonium from world governments and threaten to start a nuclear war.
Game was not well received due to its slow gameplay and the large status screen that covers nearly 30 percent of the screen.
