Now, if you're understanding of Ryu Hayabusa comes from him being the protagonist in Tecmo's classic Ninja Gaiden series then really, you don't need to read anymore - pick up a copy of The Messenger. A loving tribute to that game that also happens to feature time-travel - from the 8-bit NES era to time of the 16-bit SNES.


The Messenger from developer Sabotage and publisher Devolver Digital, deals in NES-style retro nostalgia – but it also manages to blend generations of classic games into an impressive package. Perhaps most surprising is that even after a few hours it continues to add layers in a way that feels modern. And more importantly, fun.

And when The Messenger time-travels from the 8-bit NES to the 16-bit Super Nintendo era, this more-than-a-visual-gimmick moment opens the door to much larger scope and ambition. One that shifts some of the tone and momentum away from the forward momentum and action of Ninja Gaiden towards something more in line with Super Metroid and A Link to the Past.
