The Messenger finally has a release date; it’s coming to PC and Nintendo Switch on August 30. Devolver Digital’s beautifully-rendered 8-bit/16-bit acrobatic platformer put players behind the mask of an unnamed ninja as they attempt to deliver a sacred to their village and save from an army of demons. It won’t be an easy delivery to make though; powerful demons and mysterious time portals stand in their way.
In order to reach the village in one piece, players will have to master their ninja’s deadly arts to smite enemies and navigate imposing, time-shifted gauntlets. There are many new skills to acquire and plenty of secrets to uncover, so it might just be worth it to take a side road or two. The village can wait, right?
