Merge Games and Lince Works have announced that Aragami: Shadow Edition’s release on Nintendo Switch has been delayed into 2019, allowing “more time for testing and polishing.”
“The work done by our porting partners, Stage Clear, so far has been truly fantastic. But we all agree that with more time for testing and polishing we could ensure a much more solid experience,” Lince Works studio director David Leon explained.
“We’re in no rush so it’s best we just move our release by a couple of months. Plus, most of you are all still busy playing that new cowboy game anyway.”
Taking inspiration from old-school stealth games like Tenchu and Metal Gear Solid, the third-person action stealth hit has been built around two contrasting playstyles that players can freely change without punishment.
You can choose to use your powers to play as a Ghost to remain undetected and reach your target without a whisper, or you can play as a Demon, slaying everyone in your path and using your powers to wreak havoc on your enemies.
The Nintendo Switch release will include the original base game, the Aragami Nightfall expansion and all available downloadable content, that all support two-player online co-op that is compatible cross-platform with PC and Xbox One.
Aragami: Shadow Edition will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in early 2019.
