ININ Games has announced that Shadow of the Ninja – Reborn will come to PlayStation 4 and 5 in Summer 2024. The company originally planned to release the game in Spring.
Shadow of the Ninja – Reborn is a remake of the classic NES game also known as Blue Shadow in Europe and Australia. In the action platformer, players can assume the role of ninja Hayate or the kunoichi Kaede.
Besides the delay announcement, ININ and NatsumeAtari shared a comparison trailer. It shows how different the HD edition looks. It looks much more modern-looking and detailed than the classic game.
