Fans of spiky blue hairdos rejoice: The Legend of the Mystical Ninja is coming to the North American New 3DS Virtual Console tomorrow!

An often underappreciated hidden gem of the SNES era, The Legend of the Mystical Ninja is an action adventure game built on a foundation of two different styles of gameplay: beat ‘em up brawlers and classic 2D side-scrolling platformers. Despite some odd localization decisions by Konami, the game is filled to the brim with personality. The colorfully attractive sprites, comical characters, and fantastic oriental soundtrack fuse together into one supremely addictive package.

The Legend of the Mystical Ninja will be sold for $7.99.
