Just as promised, Sega is continuing to port their classic Mega Drive and Genesis original gaming console titles to the iDevice platform. This week, Sega released the iOS version of the 1993 ninja fighting sequel Shinobi III: Return Of The Ninja Master.

Of course, this port contains the same semi-transparent virtual D-pad and buttons overlaid on the original graphics, audio, and gameplay as every other Mega Drive game to make its way to the App Store.

Shinobi III: Return Of The Ninja Master features:

• D-pad or accelerometer controls to run, wall jump, swing and even ride a Jet Ski and stallion!
• Use of weapons like shuriken, swords, stage items, and fierce ninja magic to counter Neo Zeed’s forces
• 28 stages of bio-ninjas and bosses to punch, kick and somersault your way through
• Access to either Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master or The Super Shinobi II (Japanese release) by switching the language to Japanese

Even though Joe Musashi thought he had defeated his sworn enemies, the Neo Zeed, they return once more. The Shadow Master and his followers hold the city captive as they bring fear upon the citizens. Musashi must fight his way through the bio-ninjas to endure another battle with his ancestral evil foe.

When you’re prepared to relive the fight, grab a copy of the iPhone and iPod touch compatible Shinobi III: Return Of The Ninja Master in the App Store for $2.99.
