Alex Kidd in Shinobi World © 1990 Sega Enterprises, Limited.
Alex Kidd's girlfriend has been kidnapped by the spirit of Hanzo. But after being inhabited by a ninja spirit, Alex goes on a journey which has him fighting various enemies.
This game is the very last Alex Kidd game which features him as Sega's Mascot, months later, Sega would create Alex's successor, Sonic the Hedgehog (who would be promoted in conjunction with the japanese pop group, Dreams Come True).
This game originally was going to be titled "Shinobi Kid", which was going to be a parody of the game Shinobi, and one of the bosses (who would be known as Kabuto) was a direct parody of Nintendo's own Mario character known as Mari-Oh (which included Mario's signature mustache).
