Cyber Shadow is an upcoming 2D retro-like action platformer developed by Mechanical Head Studios and published by Yacht Club Games. During Nintendo’s Indie World game showcase, it was revealed that Cyber Shadow’s official release date is January 26th for Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
During this presentation, Nintendo also revealed that the Switch Edition for Cyber Shadow would have exclusive compatibility with Shovel Knight amiibo Figures.
The game is about a dystopian future in which an evil genius has taken over the world through his robot army. Shadow, the character you’ll be playing is on a journey to take down this synthetic army and save his Ninja Clan from treachery.
Cyber Shadow features beautiful pixelated 2D levels and design, along with different kinds of unique enemies and weapons. The game looks heavily inspired by older, highly successful 2D platformers like Metroid and Mega Man, and it’s something we don’t get to see too much nowadays.
