SHADOW MAN VIDEO GAME GETS REMASTERED EDITION

I only really got into Valiant in its current iteration, but I've heard about the Shadow Man video game of old. I think the publisher even offered a copy during a Humble Bundle a few years back. If you haven't played it yet, you'll soon have a new chance as Valiant has partnered with Nightdive Studios to remaster the Shadow Man game for Windows PC via the Steam and GOG platforms, as well as the PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch consoles.

“As part of our continued growth into the video game industry, we’re happy to bring Valiant fans this immensely popular Shadow Man character as the next title we release,” said Dan Mintz, Chairman and CEO of Valiant Entertainment. “Using this platform allows the Valiant fans to experience and explore the universe creatively.”

The Shadow Man video game was originally developed by Acclaim Studios and published for the PC, PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and Dreamcast console back in 1999. Nightdive Studios published the game in its original form in 2014 for the PC. This time around, Nightdive is using its proprietary KEX engine to retsore the game across all digital platforms. It now features the below:

  • 4K widescreen display
  • Dynamic shadow mapping
  • Dynamic per-pixel lighting
  • Antialiasing, and other post-process effects
  • Higher density of particle effects
  • Refined art, audio, and assets
  • Refined gameplay experience
  • Reintroduction of missing content cut from the original game
  • Xbox, PS4, Controller Pro support
  • HDR Rendering

Stephen Kick, CEO at Nightdive Studios explained: “Our goal with the remaster is to give today’s generation of gamers all the features that they expect from a modern title while preserving the qualities that made Valiant’s iconic character and the original Shadow Man game such memorable classics to begin with.”

This news coincides with the upcoming Shadowman comic due out in May.
