'Aragami' (ALL) Shadow Edition For Nintendo Switch Delayed Until 2019

by Rainier on Nov. 12, 2018 @ 11:25 a.m. PST

Aragami: Shadow Edition is a 3D stealth game in which you control a warrior with the power of Shadow Control.

Players will control Aragami, an undead assassin with supernatural abilities summoned back from the grave by Yamiko, a mysterious girl with ties to Aragami's past. Yamiko is being imprisoned by Kaiho - The army of Light - whose warriors guard the heavily fortified citadel of Kyûryu.

Using his newly acquired Shadow Powers, Aragami can manipulate darkness to become the ultimate ninja assassin. Players will need to use all their supernatural powers, wit and cunning to defeat their enemies.

Aragami is a game heavily inspired by old-school stealth games like Tenchu and Metal Gear Solid, and more recent gems like Mark of the Ninja and Dishonored. Use your powers to play as a Ghost, remaining undetected and getting to your target without a whisper. Or you can play a total Demon, slaying everyone in your path and using your powers to wreak havoc on those who would stand against you.

Aragami: Shadow Edition for Nintendo Switch includes the original base game, the Aragami Nightfall expansion and all the available DLC. The game and expansion both support full two-player online co-op that is compatible cross-platform with PC and Xbox.

Aragami Nightfall is a 4-chapter prequel that takes place right before the events of the base game and fills key narrative points left open in the original game. 2 new playable characters, all-new deadly shadow powers, and an expanded storyline that can all be played in single player or cross-platform online co-op are all coming soon.

Aragami: Nightfall is designed around the idea of offering new challenges and more complex scenarios to experienced Aragami players. The success of the original game, with over 400 000 copies soldso far has led to substantial fanbase whose feedback of the original game helped guide the team on how to develop the additional content.

Originally planned for this fall, Lince Works and Merge Games have decided to push the Switch version of Aragami into 2019. There is no rush so it's been decided to take some time polishing and testing it more, especially the cross-play support. 

“The work done by our porting partners, Stage Clear, so far has been truly fantastic. But we all agree that with more time for testing and polishing we could ensure a much more solid experience. We're in no rush so it’s best we just move our release by a couple of months. Plus, most of you are all still busy playing that new cowboy game anyway. :P– David Leon, Studio Director, Lince Works

Key Features:

  • Control the shadows – Use your Shadow Powers to become the ultimate stealth killer. Cast shadows on any surface and use your Shadow Leap to move around undetected.
