N64 Divider game is now available on Nintendo Switch
Everyone on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch OLED, and Nintendo Switch Lite can now download a divisive N64 game that’s a cult classic for some, but for others it’s best left in the past. A few weeks ago the Nintendo eShop leaked that a remaster of this game was coming today, and it was released today.
In 2020, Nightdive Studios and Valiant Entertainment announced The Man in the Shadows Remastered, but until today it was only released on PC. Two years after its initial announcement, it’s now available on Xbox One and PS4, as well as the Nintendo Switch, where it costs $19.99 and requires a pretty hefty 5.5GB.
So far, no word of the game is coming to the platform via Nintendo Switch Online, which means if you want to play this game on Nintendo Switch, buying it directly is the only option. Also, if the game is added to the Nintendo Switch Online library, it will be the original version of the game, not via the remaster.
Published by developer Acclaim Studios Teesside and publisher Acclaim Entertainment, Shadow Man debuted in 1999 via Nintendo 64, PC and PS1. After its initial release, it then came to the Sega Dreamcast a few months later. To some, Shadow Man is a cult classic and one of the best games of its year, but as mentioned, many would disagree with that. In other words, it’s a divisive game.
As for the remaster, it not only improves and enhances the game, adding modernity where needed, but it also contains a substantial amount of new content.
“He comes to hunt down criminals in the spirit world and in the real world,” reads an official blurb for the game. . Shadow Man is coming, dragging evil from Liveside to Deadside. To stop an apocalypse. To save your soul.”
As of press time, none of the parties involved have commented on this leak. For now, we only have unofficial information. If this changes, the story will be updated accordingly. In the meantime, take everything here with a grain of salt for now.
