Cyber Shadow’s mix of traditional Ninja Gaiden and Contra has actually impressed us in the past (inspect our hands-on impressions from Gamescom 2019), so it’s amazing to discover that it lastly launches January 26th. Cyber Shadow originates from designer Mechanical Games and is released by Yacht Club, best called the designer of Shovel Knight. Players control Shadow, a ninja who is the last of his clan in a world overtaken by a wicked researcher’s artificial army. 

Players should nimbly pass through the hazard-filled environments utilizing accurate air dashes and wall-jumps, all while slashing the robotic enemies into ribbons utilizing their sword. Recusing captive ninjas bestows long-term ninjutsu abilities, such as a charge slash, parry, fireballs, and, obviously, great old made shurikens. You’ll require all the aid you can get to remove 12 difficult employers. Thankfully, Switch owners can get a help by scanning any of the Shovel Knight amiibos to summon fairy-like variations of those characters. 

Cyber Shadow will be readily available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
