Shovel Knight developer Yacht Club Games has formally unveiled Cyber Shadow, a Ninja-Gaiden-inspired 8-bit-style platformer from developer Aarne “MekaSkull” Hunziker.

Cyber Shadow sets players loose among the ruins of an enemy-infested, trap-laden Mekacity, and is described as an NES-style platformer with “the level design principles of Mario, the skills and action of Ninja Gaiden, the enemy designs of Contra, and the dark visual aesthetic of Batman.”

It promises “authentic 8-bit presentation”, “sharply honed ninja platforming action”, unlockable Ninjutsu skills and abilities, over a dozen bosses, and more. You can get a taste of all that (as well as a cracking ditty from Enrique Martin’s soundtrack) in the trailer below.
