Stepping into the light next week
Publisher Freedom Games prepares for an adventure-filled November: 9 Years of Shadows, the resplendent pixel art Metroidvania from developer Halberd Studios, illuminates on Nintendo Switch on November 9.
In 9 Years of Shadows, navigate the labyrinthian Castle Talos as Europa, a young warrior determined to bring color back to a world plagued with gray hues. Alongside her mysterious (and adorable) newfound companion Apino, map the mechanical citadel to locate the source of the land’s corruption and destroy it to call forth vibrant chroma once again.
Discover and master ancient elemental armor with special abilities that allow passage through the castle’s diverse chambers, and grant powers to defeat massive bosses. Overcome the most fearsome enemies to a soothing soundtrack composed by legendary melodists Michiru Yamane (Castlevania series) and Norihiko Hibino (Metal Gear Solid series) for a dazzling experience for the eyes and ears alike.
9 Years of Shadows will be available on Thursday, November 9 on Nintendo Switch for $19.99 USD with English and Spanish language support.
