While we originally thought that Shadow of the Ninja - Reborn would be coming to Switch sometime in Spring, we’ve now learned the game has been delayed. There’s no specific release date associated with the title yet, but we know it’ll arrive sometime in Summer 2024. This announcement came with a new trailer as well, which you can check out above.

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!

I was disappointed with Cyber Shadow because it didn't include multiplayer. I am happy that we will be getting a proper Shadow of the Ninja game that does include it. I just wish it also had the option to play online co-op as well.
