  • I don't really know but according to history opera in japan. The right position is winning position, I mean the hero stands on right side of the stage and the villain in left side and it's performing final attack. Maybe that's why final fantasy's player parties is on the right screen instead of left screen. I knew from akibaranger

  • I thought AVGN was being a little too harsh on this game. It was a decent port from the arcade version (including some NES /Famicom specific features) which was no small feat back in those days. Also, as some viewers have pointed out, the main use of the blade (Kunai) is to parry the throwing stars and sword attacks from the enemy ninja. The effects of parrying the enemy attacks felt pretty awesome back in those days, and coupled with the big jumps, it really made you feel you were acting out a badass ninja in a feature film. Yes, the game (and music) gets repetitive over time, but it was a game that I have fond memories of when games were a lot more simpler and intuitive.
