Welcome to the list of 15 best ninja / shinobi games. Frankly, ninja and shinobi are the same thing. Ninja is a Chinese word whereas shinobi is Japanese. Ninja is more popular in the Western world. However, I used the word shinobi in the title because of the Naruto… Hey, I’m not a weeb or anything! Ha ha.
A ninja or shinobi (one who sneaks) was a covert agent, mercenary, or guerrilla warfare expert in feudal Japan. – Wikipedia
They were mostly hired for infiltration, ambush, reconnaissance, espionage, deception, assassination, and later bodyguarding. Sounds fun. No wonder ninjas are widely used in movies, TV series, anime, and video games.
In Naruto, ninjas are dudes using magic but let’s not get into that today.
Best realistic Shinobi games:
1. Tenchu: Stealth Assassins
