Cyber Shadow

Earlier this week, Yacht Club Games revealed their latest project, which isn’t Shovel Knight 2, or even a Shovel Knight game. Their new project is a game called Cyber Shadow, developed in collaboration with Aarne “MekaSkull” Hunziker (who has been working on it over the past decade, with the last year spent polishing it under the supervision of Yacht Club Games).

Cyber Shadow is a Ninja Action game, and it will be released on Nintendo Switch. We don’t have a release date for now, but we do have a price: $14.99.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and some pictures:

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 in Cyber Shadow.

  • Dash, slice, and leap through masterfully designed levels filled with sharply honed ninja platforming action.
  • Authentic 8-bit presentation with hand-crafted sprites, a detailed pixel aesthetic, and perfect controls. Modern touches like fluid animation, multi-layered parallax backgrounds, and evolved game design.
  • Take down more than a dozen apocalyptic bosses, from enormous war machines to your synthetic clan rivals.
  • Relive the authenticity of classic 8-bit challenge or experience it for the first time.. with an added convenience or two.
  • Rescue your clan to unlock permanent Ninjutsu skills and abilities, combining them seamlessly as only the warrior of legend could.
  • Search for secrets as you explore the ruined world. Return to your old haunts to find supplies, items and upgrades.
  • Experience the gripping story, told both in-game and through animated cinematic story scenes between the action. Who can be trusted? How far will Shadow go to protect his clan and the one he loves?
  • Pulse-pounding soundtrack by Enrique Martin, produced by Jake Kaufman.

Heave-Ho

Devolver is on roll with Nintendo Switch announcements and releases, and today, they announced yet another game for the platform: Heave-Ho. It’s a physics-based local multiplayer adventure developed by Le Cartel, to be released this Summer in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots:

Heave Ho unites up to four players with a simple goal – don’t fall to your death. Grapplers will use their own two hands and the outstretched grip of their friends to swing, fling, and soar across each level on their way to victory.

Grab one another’s hands, climb across dangling bodies, and swing your pals to safety in a wobbly, dangly mass of limbs. Customize your character with all manner of stylish accessories and zany accouterment in a vain attempt to remember who you are and which of your hands is the only thing between you and the plummet of doom.
