Sneaking onto Switch this year
While we still don’t know the release date, we have confirmation that a physical Switch version of Shadow of the Ninja - Reborn - is on the way. This information popped up on Amazon, and you can check out the North American cover art above.
Over on the UK side of things, we see that Shadow of the Ninja - Reborn - will be priced at roughly $30 for the physical release. An Amazon UK listing also shows the game as launching on Dec. 31st, 2024, which is no doubt a placeholder date. Hopefully we get confirmation on the release date soon.
The original Shadow of the Ninja was released on the Japanese Nintendo Family Computer by Natsume Inc. in 1990. At the time, it was one of the most polished Family Computer action games and rated as one of the best two-player coop games. It was also the first of a series of titles that solidified Natsume’s reputation as a master of action games. Released as SHADOW OF NINJA in North America and BLUE SHADOW in Europe, this classic is finally returning in a completely new production.
The acclaimed 2D ninja action side-scroller with simultaneous two player gameplay returns in this new remake. Choose between the male or female character and work together to defeat challenging enemies. Incredibly detailed pixel art quality! The commitment to the 16-bit-style pixel art that was so highly acclaimed in our previous title, Pocky & Rocky Reshrined, will be on display again in this latest release. Enjoy the carefully crafted pixel art as it brings the game to life!
