Ninja Gaiden III - Restored

Hack of Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom

Description:

The US version of Ninja Gaiden 3 is inferior to the Japanese version in 3 ways. Unless you really want a challenge I suppose. Greatly increased damage from all hazards, limit of 5 continues, and no password system. My previous patch addressed the first two problems, fixed the damage and you never run out of continues. This patch finally tackles the final piece, passwords.

The US version had all password program code removed. So I started from scratch and devised my own password program code. It works well, and the passwords match the Japanese version’s passwords. This finally is the definite version of NG3 to play. The original US release and Ninja Gaiden Trilogy release all have drawbacks to the Japanese version, and this patch is on par with the Japanese version, or better since it is in English.

Screw the original NTSC-U/C Release, this is the way to play Ninja GaideN III.

Reviewed By: Apocalypse612 on 07 May 2019

This is THE way to play Ninja Gaiden III. Excellent work, MottZilla.

The Japanese made this game so difficult for America is because of the rental business that was outlawed in Japan. They did this so people would do re-rentals, and thus make them more money. But, unfortunatly with a LOT of NES games, this practice made them WAY TOO DIFFICULT. This is one of those intances.

This patch makes the game much more like the original Japanese version, but in English! It’s a lot more enjoyable, too, but the Act 7 gauntlet is still relentless so be prepared to memorize patterns and create strategies!
