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.

Need to make control point improvements like the Japanese version

Reviewed By: edwinmusic on 22 Jul 2019

There is still a difference with the Japanese version, this patch does not restore the control points, in the area 1-1C and 1-2A after dying, it returns to the area 1-1A, same in all the levels, it returns to the beginning of each level after dying. They should do it!
