Deep in the shadows a Ninja waits to strike...
War has engulfed Japan. It runs rampant throughout the land, and has even reached the province of Utakata. The Ichijo clan that rule over Utakata had done so peacefully under the protection supplied by the Asuka Ninja.
In an instant... everything changed. In a single night, the Asuka Ninja were wiped out. The warlords watching Utakata, waiting for an opportunity to attack, wasted little time. They now march towards Utakata, determined to make it their new battlefield.
Goh the Crow, the last of the Asuka Ninja, is the only hope. With no memory of the attack or any recollection of who he is, Goh must restore power to Utakata and put a new ruler on the throne. This will be no easy task. With rumours circulating about Goh's lost memory, many seek to use him to their advantage.
Who can Goh trust? Who destroyed the Asuka Ninja clan? Who will rule over Utakata?
This game is also known as Shinobido Imashime in Japan.
