Rumour: Shinobi series set for Nintendo 3DS return

Branden Brushnett, an Environment Artist currently working for Griptonite Games, may have outed the return of SEGA’s popular Shinobi series with a forthcoming Nintendo 3DS title currently in development.

Within his LinkedIn profile, Bushnett lists the following as his most recent experience:

Environment Artist
Griptonite Games
Privately Held; Computer Games industry
November 2010 – Present (7 months)
Shinobi 3DS, and an Unannounced title

Griptonite Games, based in Kirkland, Washington, has most recently worked on games based upon Marvel Comics properties across multiple platforms, as well as Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines for Sony’s PSP system.

It would certainly be fantastic to see the revival of Shinobi, although we’ll have to wait on some more concrete information to surface first.
