Shinobi isn't just a wonderful throw-back to the classic, painfully hard Shinobi of the '80s, it's also a game with a surprisingly long, surprisingly humorous list of achievements.
Here's a few I jotted down following a play session with the upcoming 3DS game.
Two left feet: Fall into a pit. Not in the face: Killed by a melee attack. Ninja reflex: Parry and attack. All fun and games: The best way to avoid being killed is to not block with your face. Quit poking me: Jump into fire or spikes. Die hard: 100 deaths. I have the power: Discover ninja magic The One: Parry 100 attacks Jumped the shark: Did you just jump over a shark? Thanks you're the best: Watching the credits. Float like a butterfly: Complete a level without any parry. S is for shinobi: Achieve an S rank in all levels.
