Shadow Man: Remastered brings back the cult-classic Nintendo 64-era action-adventure horror -- with remaster specialists Nightdive Studios at the helm. With 4k widescreen support, remastered textures and improved visual effects -- plus some cut-content thrown in for good measure -- it's available now on PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store.
Here's the launch trailer.
Shadow Man is the brave and powerful supernatural hero who protects humanity from the sinister demons that lurk in the Deadside and spill into our world. The SHADOW MAN video game was originally developed by Acclaim Studios and published for the PC, PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and Dreamcast in 1999. Considered a “lost classic” for years, the PC version of the game was published again in its original form by Nightdive Studios in 2014. SHADOW MAN: REMASTERED was updated using Nightdive’s proprietary KEX engine which has been used to restore classic video games across all digital platforms including System Shock: Enhanced Edition, Turok, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, Blood: Fresh Supply, and Forsaken Remastered.
With Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation coming later this year, here's a breakdown of all the updates and changes.
