A revamped version was to be released for the Nintendo 64, with a 3D perspective aimed at exploration, similar to Tomb Raider
and one-on-one fights geared towards Tekken
. The game was ultimately cancelled.
Some game boxes came with a free color poster featuring an enlarged picture of a Samurai and the caption "the power of bushido will be yours..." followed by the company's logo and address.
The game's name is a deliberate play on the popular Last Ninja series
In the SNES version several pictures in the intro, a bloody sword on the title screen and burger/coke power ups in the later levels were removed. Additionally all human enemies were replaced with demons. A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com
