Are you ready to become more than just a messenger? Jump into the shoes of a young ninja as he ventures through a cursed world filled with demons. The task at hand, to deliver a scroll that’ll grant his clan hope of survival. Developed by Sabotage Studio and published by Devolver Digital, The Messenger was originally released last year (August 2018) on PC and the Nintendo Switch. The game will now grace the PlayStation 4 on the 19th of March.
After watching the trailer, it is clear to see where the game draws its inspiration from. A side-scrolling action platformer inspired by the infamous Ninja Gaiden. And if you’ve ever played Ninja Gaiden before, you’ll know exactly how challenging and rewarding it is at the same time. The game also features some cool 8-bit tracks for the ‘past’ scenario levels. Along with 16-bit audio and visuals for the ‘future’ scenario levels. Both give it that nostalgic blast!
