Shovel Knight developer Yacht Club Games recently teased a new game that would be revealed around PAX East time. Interestingly, it’s a title that the studio is publishing, and not developing. That game is Cyber Shadow, an 8-bit platformer developed by Mechanical Head Studios. Check out the first gameplay trailer below.
The setting sees our hero Shadow fighting through a world overrun by machines. He’ll have to slice and dice through Mekacity to rescue his clan-mates. With over a dozen bosses and new skills and abilities to learn, Cyber Shadow promises tons of secrets and a “gripping story” told in-game and via animated sequences.
Much like Yacht Club’s approach with Shovel Knight, Cyber Shadow seems to deliver on old-school action platforming with modern movement options. It doesn’t currently have a release date, but it will be coming to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4, and PC for $14.99. Stay tuned for more details on it in the coming days.
