Speaking of ninjas, this week I’ve chosen a song from a game that is one of the first examples one thinks of when hearing “ninja game” – Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master, easily considered one of the Mega Drive/Genesis’ finest. The song is called “Whirlwind”, and was suggested by Between Life and Games forum user Firion. It’s a great example of the Mega Drive/Genesis’ top-quality sound chip.
Composers: Hirofumi Mursaki, Morohiko Akiyama, Masayuki Nagao
Game: Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
