The Ninja (忍者) is a Sega Master System run and gun game developed and published by Sega. A redesigned port of the 1985 Sega R&D 1 arcade title Ninja Princess, it was first released in Japan and Europe in November 1987, and was later brought to the United States the following month.

Version differences

Though similar in design and overall gameplay, the Sega Master System version of Ninja Princess features a different soundtrack, re-arranged stage layouts, and most notably, a new, male protagonist.
