Shinobi (PlayStation 2)
This game has a notes page
Shinobi for the PlayStation 2 is the first game in the Shinobi series to be in 3D. The game was originally planned to be released on the Dreamcast but due to the discontinuation of the Dreamcast was moved over to the PlayStation 2.
A decent sized debug menu can be re-enabled with the below code. This allows you to select any level in the game, as well as toggle debug information, and unlock various options. With the below code on, press L3 at the Press START button screen. You can also press L3 over the New Game option as well to access a quick start menu.

Normally this debug menu would have been accessed by the following methods but cannot be anymore because the game disables controller 2 inputs:
- 1. Wait at the Press START button screen for the demo movie to play.
- 2. Wait until the demo movie ended (or skipped).
- 3. Back at the Press START button screen, press and hold R1 on controller 1. While holding still, press and also hold the following on controller 2: R2 + L2 + L1 + D-Pad Right + D-Pad Down.
Doing those steps would have enabled the debug menu without the use of cheats.
This menu mostly lets you unlock various items in the game, such as items in the Extras menu.
This menu allows you to toggle various debug information on-screen.
This menu allows you to warp to any map in the game, assuming you know their correct map IDs. This also allows you to toggle various map settings on or off. Setting the PLAYER option to off will allow you to enter a free camera state.
Pressing L3 over the New Game option in the main menu will allow you to enter this menu. This allows you to quickly jump into a map based on story progression.
Using the AREA SELECT menu, you can easily warp to these maps. When selecting any of these maps, you will need to turn off the SE and Enemy options. These maps do not contain those files and will fail to load if the game tries to load them.

The game had the following difficulty settings in the Japanese and European versions: Easy, Normal and Hard. Easy was removed entirely in the US version, which shifted the collectables from Normal to Hard and added in an extra "Super" difficulty with the Hard mode collectables. Super is the only difficulty where default character Hotsuma can't kill the later bosses in one hit.
