So considering this was called Ninja Princess in the arcades and in this port a male ninja is now heading to the castle to rescue the princess, can we then assume that this is actually a sequel? The plot (that scrolls way too fast!) at the start certainly makes a point about emphasizing how the princess was previously captured, so it would make sense then for us to go through the exact same places looking now for her. While it would have been cool to see a female lead right from launch (sorry, Alis) it is kind of cool how SEGA made it possible for the arcade version to have existed before this one in some alternate timeline.
I don't think it's a sequel, I think this is similar to the Monster Bash issue where they just wanted to make a slightly different game. It was just called Sega Ninja, by the way. As far as I know anyway.

It was called Ninja Princess in Japan. More fitting than Sega Ninja, really.
You know, I never thought much of the Master System launch, but when you consider the first wave of games had Fantasy Zone, Safari Hunt, The Ninja, Astro Warrior and Alex Kidd in Miracle World, that's a damn fine way to kick off the system!
"Enduro" is a symbolic journey through life via the media of a race.
I remember picking up that game around 1993 or something. I was at this game story and thought, on what game i should spend my money. I wanted at least a new master system game and i spottet that. The Ninja....well, ninjas were cool, Shinobi was a good game, so what could be bad about it? Happily as i was, whenever it got some new games (remember, i was 8 years old) i went home and played it. At first i thought it wasn't that bad, it played good and the invisible feature was great, but after the first level the difficulty increased and it became bad. I don't know what swear words i used back then, but i hated the game.
After some years, now i can say that the game isn't that bad at all. It still difficult, but i like games with a challenge and while neither the level nor the character design is something special i like it. It's a fun little game.
this games was great because it only cost £10 which ment I got on a weekend with my pocket money instead of getting games on birthday which was the norm as kid tryed so had to beat this game but got no where in fact it was the only game in which my brother was better than me at so I guess you could say I kind of love and hate this game at the same time but FOR £10 WHAT A BARGIN
