SEGA planning Shinobi revival?

Developer resumé outs 3DS game.

SEGA's classic Shinobi franchise is all set for a comeback, judging by a developer resumé unearthed today.

Twitter sleuth Superannuation spotted an online CV for an environment artist at Griptonite Games listing Shinobi 3DS as their current project.

The artist claims to have "created whole levels for 'Shinobi' on the Nintendo 3DS, including many props for use in a variety of environments."

Griptonite specialises in handheld versions of multiplatform releases, having worked on the DS version of Spider Man: Shattered Dimensions and Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines on the PSP.

We're asked brand owner SEGA for some clarification and will update if we hear back.

Debuting in arcades back in 1987, SEGA's ninja platformer has spawned a number of sequel and spin-offs over the years. It was last sighted on the PlayStation 2 with 2003's dismal Nightshade.
