Nightdive Studios announced today that Shadow Man: Remastered, the remake version of the 1999 classic, will come to PC on April 15 on Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store. Its console version (it is also confirmed for release on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch) has not received a release date yet, although it also aims to be released this year. Those responsible for the project will give more information about it later.
Shadow Man: Remastered is coming to PC on April 15
This project was announced in March last year. This game will support resolution up to Ultra HD 4K and more details in the shadows and texturing, as well as anti-aliasing and HDR. Shadow Man: Remastered is being developed with the KEX engine, the same tool used to create System Shock: Enhanced Edition.
Extra content and comic book re-release
In addition to graphical improvements, Shadow Man: Remastered will also feature additional content that was not present in the original game. Valiant Entertainment, the comic book imprint responsible for the franchise, will release a re-release of the Shadowman #1 comic book on April 28.
When this remaster was announced, Stephen Kick, the CEO of Nightdive Studios, explained that the studio’s vision is to keep the original creative vision largely intact while updating it to make it accessible to new audiences: “Our goal with the remaster is to give today’s generation of gamers all the features that they expect from a modern title while preserving the qualities that made Valiant’s iconic character and the original Shadow Man game such memorable classics to begin with.”
Shadow Man is an action-adventure originally released by Acclaim for Nintendo 64, PlayStation, Dreamcast, and PC in 1999. We play as Michael LeRoi in the game, a hero with supernatural powers who faces an army of demons trying to invade the Earth.
