Saigo no Nindou is a ninja action game by Irem, conversion of their own arcade game. Almost like a true 'Ninja Tradition', the game features a fearless ninja with mystical beast-powers on a mission of revenge against the fearsome army of demons that killed his brother. Tsukikage, our hero, has four weapons to choose from and can switch from one to another at will. They include the traditional katana blade, the fast throwing stars, the powerful hand grenades and a neat hook type weapon. Those weapons greatly expand the range of available options and the player is often challenged with situations where a specific weapon has to be used. Those weapons can also be upgraded by collecting special bonuses left behind by red colored Ninjas. Other special items, such as shields or multiple-shadows can also be collected. The game offers an Arcade and PC-Engine modes, the later gives the player five lives (or hits) instead of one.
