So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:

  • Regional differences: Soundtrack completely redone by Richard Jacques for the European version.
  • Get a rip of the unused song listed here, and find out whether it still exists in Shinobi X.

Cheat Codes

Level Select


Pause during gameplay and press A, B, A, B, C to add the level number to the bottom left of the screen. Toggle it with Left and Right and press Start to go to the chosen level.

99 Lives

On the title screen, highlight "Game Start" and press A, Z, B, Y, C, X, Start.

999 Shurikens

In the Options menu, highlight "Shurikens", then hold L + R and press C, A, and B.

One-Hit Wonder Mode

On the title screen, highlight "Game Start" and press A, B, C, B, A, Start. If entered correctly, the player will begin the game with zero lives and an energy meter that is no longer split into separate parts.

View FMV Cutscenes

During the intro, press C, X, B, Y, A, Z, Start. Pressing Start again allows the player to toggle through the cutscenes. (This code only works in the Japanese and European versions.)

Regional Differences

Title Screen

Since the game has a different name depending on the region, all the title screen logos were adjusted accordingly.

  • In the European version, the in-game music was replaced with new music by Richard Jacques, though the cutscene music tracks were left intact.
  • English subtitles were added to the cutscenes in the US and European versions.
  • For unknown reasons, the opening cutscene was removed from the US version. As a result, this also makes the above FMV cutscene cheat inaccessible.
