According to wii.nintendolife, the NES games Shadow of the ninja hitting the virtual console service someday.

Sneaky sneaky

Classic Natsume title recently rated

Europeans may know it better as the Taito-published Blue Shadow, but North American readers will recognise Shadow of the Ninja from its 1990 NES debut.

OFLC, the ratings board for Australia, recently granted the game a PG certificate listing Nintendo as the publisher, all-but guaranteeing the game is on its way to Virtual Console.

Veterans of Shinobi and Ninja Gaiden may think they've seen it all before, but Shadow of the Ninja boasts full two-player co-op play, something that garner it a few more sales. We'll have more on this one as it unfolds.

A definite download for me.
