Shinobi Hits Late 2011 and CRUSH3D Early 2012

SEGA Europe Ltd. And SEGA of America today confirmed the release dates for two of their most anticipated Nintendo 3DS™ titles. Shinobi™ will be released on November 15, 2011, while CRUSH3D™ will be released on February 21, 2012.

Shinobi for Nintendo 3DS will put players in the shoes of Jiro Musashi, the father of Joe Musashi from the original 1989 release, offering a glimpse into Musashi family history. Sporting a vast story mode as well as an innovative, yet to be announced StreetPass™ mode, Shinobi will keep players coming back for more ninja action.

CRUSH3D is set in the mind of the young protagonist Danny, where he is testing out his friend's new invention C.R.U.S.H. When the machine falls in love with Danny, he has to work his way through mind-stretching puzzles that blend 2D and 3D elements to escape its clutches.
