How do you lure a ninja out of hiding? Release it on the 3DS Virtual Console, I guess.
Ninja Gaiden for the 3DS Virtual Console will be available for purchase on December 6. The title, originally released for the NES in 1989, carries a price tag of $4.99. It was originally scheduled to arrive on the 3DS on November 8 according to an October press release.
Ninja Gaiden is known for its difficulty and early use of cinematics. Players control Ryu Hayabusa, and attempt to stop a madman's attempt to destroy the world.
The series most recently surfaced with Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge for the Wii U.
