16-Bit Gems #14: Legend of the Mystical Ninja

The first American release in the popular Japanese “Goemon” series, Legend of the Mystical Ninja was an early entry in the Super Nintendo’s lineup that unfortunately was ignored by many kids of the day. But those that looked past its strange qualities were rewarded with one of the best games of the 16-bit era. With anime, manga, and para para dancing all the rage now, perhaps the West is ready to give this gem another shot.
