Cancelled portThe Last Ninja (or possibly its follow-up) was being ported to the Tandy Color Computer 3, and even mentioned in Tandy's catalogues. The project facing difficulties, Steve Bjork was called in to help before the game was finally canceled. As a recently recovered development version shows, the CoCo port was already at an advanced state when it was scrapped. For information and pictures, refer to Allen Huffman's site.
Delayed portIn 1988, Marc Rosocha had an conversion of Last Ninja ready for Atari ST and Amiga computers. But this was not released until 1990 with Ninja Remix, with featured extended graphics and was completely programmed from scratch.
