Shadow Man Remastered has PlayStation and Xbox consoles today

Shadow Man Remastered is a remake of the 1999 cult game that launched on PC in April 1999. The updated version comes from Nightdive Studios, the team currently working on the upcoming System Shock remake, and it’s making a surprise jump to consoles…today!

Developed by Acclaim, Shadow Man was released on August 31, 1999, for PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and PC, before making its way to the Sega Dreamcast later that year. Players control the titular Shadowman, a superhero from Valiant Comics whose series began in the early ’90s. In addition to possessing enhanced strength, agility, and durability, Shadowman has mystical voodoo-derived powers that you’ll use to fight otherworldly foes to prevent the end of the world. The game was a modest critical success and gained a cult following. You can watch the remake’s launch trailer below.

The remastered version features 4K visuals and 60 frames per second gameplay, with additional graphics features such as antialiasing and dynamic shadow mapping. The control system has also been modernized with mechanisms such as weapon wheels and automatic aiming. The Switch version, which launched on January 17, includes gyroscopic aiming. For existing fans, the remake also includes three new levels dropped from the original.

You can buy Shadow Man Remastered right now for $19.99 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
