Developer Bilibili and publisher TiGames’ F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch launched for PlayStation last September, followed by a PC launch shortly afterward, and though it wasn’t the most high profile release of the year, those who played it would tell you that it was an excellently-made game that all fans of Metroidvania experiences should check out. And soon, it seems, the game will become available to a wider audience.
As reported by Gematsu, F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch was recently rated for the Nintendo Switch by the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee. A Switch version of the game hasn’t yet been officially announced of course, but this isn’t the first time that an imminent announcement for a game has been preceded by a classification rating for it, so one may very well be coming soon.
In our review of F.I.S.T., we awarded it a score of 7/10, saying, “Aside from rigid combat and some visual hiccups, F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch delivers a unique world with an intriguing narrative and tight traversal.” You can read our full review through here.
F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch is currently available on PS5, PS4, and PC. Shortly after the game’s launch last year, its developers confirmed that work on new content was underway.
