Indie Spotlight - Shadow Blade: Reload


Our weekly Indie Spotlight articles highlight one indie game that we feel is worth your attention. Every game listed has a planned console release for the Xbox One and/or PS4.

Shadow Blade: Reload

Developed by Dead Mage, Shadow Blade: Reload is the enhanced version of the previously released Shadow Blade on Mobile platforms. Currently available on Steam, Shadow Blade: Reload is a side-scrolling action platformer where players take on the role of Kuro - the blade of shadow.

Reload includes a full campaign featuring 7 chapters with a comic book style story. There is also a challenge mode to test your skills and compete for leaderboard positions. The Steam version includes a full blown level editor where you can create and share levels with friends.




"Shadow Blade is an action-platformer set in a visually striking world where the ancient teachings of ninjas and samurai clash upon a modern landscape. Sprint through stages littered with traps, slaying enemies along your path without hesitation as Kuro, the blade of shadow!
Story"

"Darkness and chaos are once again creeping into the world of man. The covenant made in a time almost forgotten has failed, the three clans now in a violent struggle for dominance. The medallion is almost made whole again and it falls upon Kuro?s shoulders to restore balance. All his training has led up to this one moment, where the fate of the world will rest in his blood-stained hands."


Key Features

Epic NINJA Platforming: Test your skills in fast-paced platforming, mastering the skills of the ninja to breeze through challenging levels.

Vicious NINJA Combat: Kill your enemies with extreme prejudice through the mastery of the katana, shurikens and kusarigama!

Shadow Ninja: Attack the guards before they see you and alert all other mobs.

Story Campaign: Fully voiced motion comics tell the story of Kuro's plight to restore balance!

More than 50 Challenging Levels: Environmental hazards, rifle-toting warriors and many more challenges await a hardened warrior.

Ninja = Hardcore: Cleared the normal campaign? Prepare for the ?Hardcore? variation and if you dare, the ultimate ?Master Class? version awaiting only the foolhardy.

Challenge Modes and Leaderboards: Feel the need to gloat? Challenge yourself in these specially crafted stages only for the masters. Compare your stats with friends and other players as you fight for the top of the leaderboards!


Shadow Blade: Reload will be heading to the Xbox One and PS4 at a date yet to be determined. For more information you can visit the official website, or follow the developers on Twitter and Facebook.
