Shinobi (PlayStation 2)
This game has a notes page
The PS2 Shinobi is the first 3D entry in the series. It was originally developed for the Dreamcast, being moved to the PS2 after Sega announced it was exiting the console market.
A decent-sized debug menu can be re-enabled with the below code. This allows you to select any level in the game, as well as toggle debug info and unlock various options. With the below code on, press L3 at the "Press START button" screen. You can also press L3 over the New Game option as well to access a quick start menu.

The game's code indicates that the debug menu would have been accessed with a series of steps, the last part of which involves Controller 2 (the final game doesn't acknowledge Controller 2 at all):
- Wait at the "Press START button" screen for the demo movie to play.
- Wait until the demo movie ended (or skipped).
- Back at the "Press START button" screen, hold R1 on Controller 1 and R2 + L2 + L1 + D-Pad Right + D-Pad Down on Controller 2.

Pressing L3 over the New Game option in the main menu will allow you to enter this menu. This allows you to quickly jump into a map based on story progression.
Using the "AREA SELECT" menu, you can easily warp to these maps. When selecting any of these maps, you will need to turn off the SE and Enemy options. These maps do not contain those files and will fail to load if the game tries to load them.

A test map which contains various colored floors and moving platforms.
Stage No. 10, Area No. 1
Another test map which contains various walls which you can traverse.
The Japanese and European versions have three difficulty settings: Easy, Normal, and Hard. The US version removed Easy, shifted the Normal-level collectables to Hard, and added an extra "Super" difficulty with the old Hard-level collectables (along with being the only difficulty where default character Hotsuma can't kill the later bosses in one hit).
