Devolver Digital and Sabotage have announced that The Messenger will release on Nintendo Switch next week, their hotly-anticipated ninja adventure.

You play as a nameless ninja warrior who must brave a cursed world on a mission to deliver a scroll that is paramount to his clan’s survival, as a demon army besieges his village.

While the adventure starts out as a traditional, linear 8-bit game, it soon turns into a time-travelling adventure that sees it become intertwined with a 16-bit universe.

Metroidvania exploration and secrets await in an experience that is accompanied by an original chiptune score from composer Rainbowdragoneyes.

The Messenger will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on August 30th, priced at £15.99 ($19.99).
