Sabotage’s “The Messenger” is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC on Aug. 30, 2018.

To celebrate confirming the release date, the developer has revealed a new trailer showcasing the retro 8- and 16-bit action platformer and its SNES-inspired visual design.

In “The Messenger” you play as a young ninja seeking to deliver a special scroll to reverse a demon army’s hold on his village. The classic 2D adventure game will include branching paths, new abilities, upgrades, and hidden levels, too.

Devolver promises “dynamic, acrobatic gameplay and ultra-tight controls worthy of an epic ninja adventure” and a “memorable cast of offbeat villains, bosses, and associates”.
