Yacht Club Games (the devs behind Shovel Knight) will be taking up publishing duties for Cyber Shadow. Developed by Mechanical Head Studios, Cyber Shadow has you playing a tech Ninja Shadow, in a future world that has been taken over by synthetic lifeforms. Shadow will have to traverse the ruins of Mekacity to discover what led to this new inhuman world. Cyber Shadow looks like a hack and slash meets platformer, giving. strong Ninja Gaiden vibe.
The game was announced on the same day, as Yacht Club Games announced that a new Shovel Knights game was coming. Shovel Knights Pocket Dungeon will be a dungeon-crawling puzzle game starring the titular Shovel Knight, and other popular characters such as King Knight. Pocket Dungeon is somewhere between a rogue-lite and a puzzle game, Yacht Club said, but you can check out the trailer below and make up your mind.
While the new Shovel Knight game called Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon seems to be taking a different route from its predecessors, Cyber Shadow seems to borrow the same 2D 8-bit aesthetics, that was signature for Shovel Knight.
Cyber Shadow is scheduled to be released in fall 2020 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC via Steam, and Xbox One. It will be available via Xbox Game Pass on both PC and Xbox One. On the other hand, we don’t know what platforms Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon will be arriving on, though from the trailer it does look it will be mobile-focused this time around.
