Hamster has released the latest  offering in its record-breaking Arcade Archives range. After a series of recent shmups we return to classic, side-scrolling action, as Jaleco’s Ninja Kazan makes its platform-hopping return on PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

Released in arcades in 1988 at the very height of the ninja gaming craze – which saw Tecmo’s Ninja Gaiden, Sega’s Shinobi, and Taito’s Ninja Warriors all hit in the same period – Ninja Kazan is hack ‘n’ slash platformer, following a young warrior’s inexplicable world tour, slicing and dicing his way through the U.S., Greece, India, Africa, and finally Japan, while on a quest to regain some stolen ancient scrolls.

Check out the action in the video below, courtesy of YouTuber SidMania.
