Cyber Shadow Coming In January

The retro-inspired action game is coming in early 2021, and you can even get some more use out of your Shovel Knight Amiibo.


Cyber Shadow, the retro-style action game modeled after classics like Ninja Gaiden, is coming to Nintendo Switch on January 26. The release date was announced as part of Nintendo's December Indie World showcase.

As part of the presentation, publisher Yacht Club also showed off how your Shovel Knight Amiibo will be compatible with Cyber Shadow on Nintendo Switch. The gameplay showed the ninja summoning tiny familiars of Shovel Knight and Plague Knight.

Cyber Shadow is being developed by Mechanical Head Studios, and published by Yacht Club--best known for Shovel Knight and its offshoots like Shovel Knight Dig and Pocket Dungeon.
