January 30, 2019, Manchester, UK — Merge, an independent video game publisher and distributor, and Lince Works, the dev-team behind the third-person action stealth hit Aragami, are delighted to announce they have joined forces again to bring Aragami: Shadow Edition to the Nintendo Switch. Selling over 500,000 copies to date, Aragami: Shadow Edition gets set for a digital and physical release for Nintendo Switch on Feb. 21, 2019.
Aragami casts you as an undead assassin with the power to control the shadows. By manipulating the darkness you will be able to teleport via the shadows, create new paths to reach your targets, materialize weapons and abilities and even summon shadow beasts to dispose of your foes. Heavily inspired by old-school stealth games like Tenchu and Metal Gear Solid, and more recent gems like Mark of the Ninja and Dishonored, Aragami puts an emphasis on bringing back the challenge these games ought to offer.
Aragami is built around two contrasting playstyles, which players can freely change between without the game punishing them for doing so. Use your powers to play as a Ghost, remaining undetected and getting to your target without a whisper. Or play as a Demon, slaying everyone in your path, using your powers to wreak havoc on your foes.
