Ninja Spirit, as many action games, was released in arcades and after becoming a success it was ported to home consoles, starting on PC Engine in 1990 (in arcades it was released 2 years before).
Set in a feudal Japan with mysterious spirits, Tsukikage, a young ninja, has to avenge the death of his father, who was killed by a strange ninja who escaped in the shape of a wolf.
Through the seven stages Tsukikage can use his katana and during his journey he will find power-ups like shurikens, bombs and even multiple ninja ghosts that can assist him.
The PC Engine version is highly praised for being a great conversion from the arcade, but generally it’s a great action game itself.
