Cyber Shadow was originally teased at PAX East 2019 and now has an officially secured a release date set for the end of this month. In a press release from developer Inti Creates, the studio announced that it would be teaming with Yacht Club Games as well as Mechanical Head Studios to bring the 8-bit ninja throwback to the Nintendo Switch. Cyber Shadow will be officially releasing digitally on the Nintendo Switch eShop on January 26th, 2021, for $19.99. With a PS4 and PS5 release to come along shortly after.
The 2D action side-scroller will have players assuming the role of Shadow as he slashes and dashes his way through hordes of synthetic artificial lifeforms, while on a quest to figure out what left Mekacity in ruins. With some major retro vibes that also bring to mind classics like Ninja Gaiden and Strider, with a healthy dosage of Metroidvania mechanics thrown in for good measure, Cyber Shadow aims to be the quintessential ninja action game. That is a tall order for any prospective game to want to take on but it looks like it’s well on its way to be a worthy contender for the title.
We’ve included further below the latest trailer and screenshots for Cyber Shadow.
We are delighted to share the fact that we are working with publisher @YachtClubGames and developer Mechanical Head Studios to publish Cyber Shadow in the Japan/Asia region on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5!
