Cyber Shadow: A Promising Retro Ninja? [VIDEO]

Yacht Club Games (who happened to strike gold with Shovel Knight) will be the publishers of Mechanical Head Studios‘ game, which seems to be a modern reimagination of the original Ninja Gaiden trilogy on the NES…

„The world has been taken over by synthetic lifeforms. A desperate plea for help sets Shadow on a journey to uncover what started the path to perpetual ruin. Slash through the techno hordes, leap past traps, and nimbly navigate the ruins of Mekacity,” the press release says.

Hand-crafted sprites, a detailed pixel aesthetic, and perfect controls? Modern touches like fluid animation, multi-layered parallax backgrounds? More than a dozen apocalyptic bosses? A gripping story, told both in-game and through animated cinematic story scenes between the action? A soundtrack by Enrique Martin, produced by Jake Kaufman (Shovel Knight, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero…)? All will be present in the game. Oh, and our character will evolve as we progress, too.

Cyber Shadow made a very solid first impression, and recently, The Messenger also had the same vibes. It seemed to be a Ninja Gaiden-like game, but it turned out to be a surprisingly decent Metroidvania with not a blood-boiling difficulty. Cyber Shadow might repeat history…

We don’t know the release date yet, but it’s confirmed to come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, for fifteen dollars.
