DATA024: Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi
Originally released in 1990, Shadow Dancer combined elements of its arcade predecessor and the methodical hack and slash gameplay of The Revenge of Shinobi to create a different and grittier take on the Shinobi series, set in a New York City devastated and overrun by a demonic lizard worshipping cult. The score, composed by Keisuke Tsukahara, largely replaces the Japanese influences of The Revenge of Shinobi with an occasionally darker, more chaotic tone to compliment the dystopian western setting, alongside a few funkier, bass-focused tracks for which the series has become known.
Shadow Dancer is presented as a 180g vinyl edition, with audio sourced from a Japanese Mega Drive console, remastered in-house and cut at 45RPM. It is packaged in a heavyweight matt laminated sleeve and accompanied by a double-sided lithographic print of archival artwork and an obi strip. It is available in the following editions:
180g Translucent Teal with White Splatter (Limited Edition)
180g Translucent Teal
180g Classic Black

Due to the manufacturing process, some copies may show small traces of splatter on the labels.
