Cyber Shadow, a game we tried out at PAX East many moons ago, finally has a release date. Publisher Yacht Club Games and one-person developer Mechanical Head Studios have revealed that the upcoming game will hit digital storefronts on January 26, 2021.
The game is inspired by classic action platformers like Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania, and focuses players on counting pixels and timing jumps, and slashing away at enemies in between — just like the best of nostalgic 80s games. It could continue Yacht Club’s incessant (and welcomed) behavior of scratching that classic itch.
Look for it on Switch, PS4/5, Xbox 1/Series, and PC.
