Just over twenty years after its initial debut, the Game Boy Advance title Ninja Five-O is returning with a new Switch release. Limited Run Games is involved and will be releasing it thanks to its Carbon Engine.

Hudson Soft originally developed Ninja Five-O for its 2003 launch. It stars Joe Osugi, a ninja who goes on a mission to put an end to a terrorist group tainted by the Mad Masks.

More information can be found in the following overview:

One of the most sought-after titles for the Game Boy Advance, Ninja Five-O (also known as Ninja Cop) is an action platformer game that tasks hero Joe Ostugi with eliminating a terrorist group corrupted by a set of mystical masks.

Over 20 years after its initial release, the Carbon Engine team at Limited Run is bringing this title back to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation platforms. This re-release features the true-to-release controls and playability that the Carbon Engine is known for, along with rewind features to put players in control of the game.
