During a Nintendo Indie World presentation today, publisher Yacht Club Games finally announced a release date for the 2D action-sidescroller, Cyber Shadow.
The title will release on Switch, Steam, PS4, and Xbox One on Jan. 26, 2021. It’s being developed by Mechanical Head Games and is a gorgeous retro-inspired platforming action game that takes a lot of notes from games like Ninja Gaiden.
During the presentation, it was also revealed that the Switch version of the game will have exclusive compatibility with Shovel Knight amiibo figures. If you scan one in, you can get some help from some familiar faces.

Here’s quick synopsis of the game from its official site:
In Cyber-Shadow, 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. Only you can unlock the secrets to your clan’s ancient powers in Cyber Shadow, the quintessential Ninja Action game.
