by Rainier on Jan. 13, 2021 @ 5:00 p.m. PST

Shing! brings back the arcade beat 'em up gameplay and supercharges it with crazy stylish action and intuitive stick-based controls.

Shing!’s unique control style is designed around the right analog stick, letting you pull off angled slices, counters, aerials and more with freestyle flicks and spins. Learning to block and parry effectively will help keep you alive in the heat of battle, while special buffs around the environment will give you incredible active and passive buffs to unleash on foes.

Your band of wisecracking warriors each have their own strengths, and you can swap between them at any time in an instant to extend combos, revive allies, or conserve power-ups for later use. Throughout the adventure, you’ll discover thrilling challenge rooms where you can test your skills and reflexes in ultra-hard scenarios. There are also special lore rooms where you can spend time getting to better know your party members, as well as the distinct world of anime-inspired visuals and music that is Shing!

Take control of four Yokai hunters – deadly warriors tasked with defending the realm from a sudden onslaught of mythical beasts . While trying to recover the legendary Starseed, they will trek through crowded cities bathed in neon light, ash-covered ruins of ancient civilizations, noxious swamps covered in mist and many other exotic locations.
