Why Shinobi non Grata is joining the SLG catalog
As far as recreating the 80s/90s gaming experience goes, Shinobi non Grata is up there as one of the great ones. Combining the graphics, sound and gameplay of the time, not to forget the difficulty, turns them up to eleven. You won’t find level-ups or upgrades to ease the pain, and rushing in without a plan will lead to certain death. You have to manage your resources and ninja tools to their full effect and learn the patterns of the game, especially during the impressive boss battles. This aspect will surely not only appeal to players who grew up with these kinds of games, but also fans of the modern SoulsBorne sub-genre, which follows a similar philosophy. We are really happy to be able to bring this title which combines old in new in such a spectacular way to everyone in physical form.
