Players take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa, a rising warrior in his family's clan whose main role in the world is to protect the Dark Dragon Blade from falling into the hands of evil. Ryu travels to America to seek vengeance for his father's death. Players fight their way through 14 challenging side-scrolling levels while defeating gangs of street thugs, battling evil ninjas and fighting barbarian bosses by using the deadly Dragon Sword, ninja skills and Ninpo (ninja magic). Players can run, crouch, jump and climb as they make their way through each stage and collect items to gain points, strength and weapons.

Gaiden can mean side-story or letter. For most games, Gaiden is used to denote that the game is a side-story in a series of games; not necessarily cannon or even part of established timeline. However, in the case of this game's title is actually means Letter. The story kicks off when the protagonists finds a letter written by his father who was recently killed in a duel.
