Sony Playstation 2 Shinobi SKUPS26

Sony Playstation 2 Shinobi SKUPS26 is a 3D action-adventure video game developed by Overworks and published by Sega as part of the Shinobi series. It was released for the PS2 console on November 10, 2002 in North America; December 5 in Japan; and May 15, 2003 in Europe. The game stars the ninja Hotsuma, who wields Akujiki, a sword that feeds on souls. He can also use ninja magic, shurikens, and special moves. Upon finding a golden castle after an earthquake, Hotsuma makes it his goal to defeat the sorcerer Hiruko.

The player guides protagonist Hotsuma through eight levels that each consist of two sections and a boss battle. Gameplay consists of quickly moving through levels and killing enemies. The game does not feature checkpoints, but allows the player to continue from the start of a boss battle should they die.

Combat is hack and slash-based,¬†involving large numbers of recurring enemies.¬†Hotsuma’s sword, Akujiki, is his primary weapon. Akujiki feeds on souls, initially devouring those of the enemies he kills, then that of Hotsuma himself if he does not kill any enemies for too long. This leads to an emphasis on killing all enemies in a battle as quickly as possible. To ensure that Akujiki’s hunger remains sated, Hotsuma can kill four or more enemies with no more than a few seconds between each kill to perform an exaggeratedly violent “TATE” attack that will release more souls for Akujiki. The mechanic of jumping from enemies after dispatching them adds an element of platform gameplay.

Hotsuma can also use shurikens to briefly paralyze his enemies. Three types of ninja magic are available to him: “Ka’en”, an area-based fire attack; “Kamaitachi”, a ranged shock wave attack; and “Raijin”, which grants him invincibility for a short period of time.
