After a year and a half long wait or so, Nightdive Studio’s Shadowman Remastered will be finally releasing on Nintendo Switch next month. On January 17th, players will be able to return to Deadside as Mike LeRoi, a man-turned-voodoo warrior who must fight evil souls who have escaped to the world of the living, and return them to the land of the dead.
Shadowman Remastered is an enhanced version of the classic Nintendo 64/Dreamcast/PC title. Nightdive Studios have worked tirelessly to bring this game to modern gaming platforms and adding vast visual, audio and gameplay improvements, whilst keeping the core elements of the original game in place.
