Record publisher Data Discs of London has restocked the Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master vinyl soundtrack album.

The music score to Sega's 1993 action title for the 16-bit Mega Drive is composed by Hirofumi Murasaki, Morihiko Akiyama and Masayuki Nagao. All audio is sourced directly from the Japanese Model 1 Mega Drive and captured in 24bit/96kHz.

Music tracks "Solitary" and "Ninja Soul" are streaming on the Data Discs' SoundCloud channel. The release includes a foldout poster decorated with archival Japanese artwork, licensed through Sega. Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master is included in the Sega Genesis Mini console.

From the product page:
Shinobi III is a relentless bass-driven soundtrack which, upon its release in 1993, pushed the Mega Drive’s audio capabilities to its limit. Its strong percussive elements are something of a technical marvel and, like all of the greatest soundtracks of the 16bit era, showcases the ingenuity and resolve of game composers when faced with extremely limited hardware.
