Feudal Cyberpunk Adventure “Shinobi Rising” Coming to Nintendo Switch, PC in 2023

W.R.K.S Games recently announced that Shinobi Rising is coming to PC and Nintendo Switch in 2023.

Shinobi Rising is intended to be the first game in the Katana-Ra Universe, which is inspired by both feudal Japanese history and futuristic Cyberpunk. The game is a side-scroller with both stealth and detective/mystery-solving gameplay.

Here’s the official breakdown of Shinobi Rising from W.R.K.S Games:

In Shinobi Rising, you play as a shinobi who must solve a murder mystery and discover the culprit behind the death of an innocent child heiress. Uncover clues and solve puzzles. Engage in stealth combat and use your ninja skills to defeat your enemies – or avoid them entirely. With stunning stylised graphics and an engaging storyline, Shinobi Rising is sure to keep gamers entertained and serve as a great introduction to our vibrant new game universe of Katana-Ra.

The entire game will play out in one single night of time, where the main character must solve a murder mystery and find the real culprit behind the assassination of the young heiress to the Kata Clan.

Shinobi Rising is planned to release on PC in February 2023 (via the W.R.K.S Store and Steam) and will come to Nintendo Switch later in 2023.
