The ninja retro platformer Cyber Shadow will be arriving on Xbox systems next month, as well as being included into Xbox Game Pass on January 26, 2021.

Cyber Shadow received a new trailer during a Nintendo Indie Showcase earlier this week and was one of the most notable games of the presentation. Its retro style and gameplay lends a heavy resemblance to the fantastic title The Messenger, and is looking to be a tightly crafted action platformer.

The official description reads:

“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.”

Judging by the trailer, multiple stages will demand quick reflexes and superb skills against the many platforming gauntlets and elaborate bosses, all presented in stunning 8-bit glory. Sounds great!
