Late last night, developer Nightdive Studios and publisher Valiant Entertainment released a brand new launch trailer for its remaster of cult action-adventure game, Shadow Man. That’s right, the dark and twisted third-person experience is now available to download on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, with a Nintendo Switch port coming next week on Jan. 17.
Behold the latest console launch trailer for Shadow Man Remastered down below:
As you can see above, Shadow Man remastered is an old-school action game from the days of yore. Originally released on the Nintendo 64 and the PlayStation 1 back in 1999, the game went on to become a bit of a cult classic thanks to its peculiar story, challenging difficulty and its uniquely ’90s blend of horror and comic book styles.
For those on PC, Shadow Man Remastered is already available on Steam and came out last April.
For more information about the game, here’s the gist courtesy of a press release we received recently:
Shadow Man is the brave and powerful supernatural hero who protects humanity from the sinister demons that lurk in the Deadside and spill into our world. The SHADOW MAN video game was originally developed by Acclaim Studios and published for the PC, PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and Dreamcast in 1999. Considered a “lost classic” for years, the PC version of the game was published again in its original form by Nightdive Studios in 2014. SHADOW MAN: REMASTERED was updated using Nightdive’s proprietary KEX engine, which has been used to restore classic video games across all digital platforms, including System Shock: Enhanced Edition, Turok, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, Blood: Fresh Supply, and Forsaken Remastered. SHADOW MAN: REMASTERED Key Features:
– 4K 60FPS visuals on PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S|X

– Gyro-aiming on Nintendo Switch
– Anti-aliasing and other post-processing magic
– A whole new visual experience with dynamic shadow mapping and per-pixel lighting

SHADOW MAN: REMASTERED retails for $19.99 USD on the respective storefronts for PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch consoles. The remastered game was initially released for Windows PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Game Store on April 15, 2021.
