Indie games studio Mass Creation announced that their upcoming side-scrolling, ninja beat’em up, Shing! will launch on August 28, 2020, for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, as well as Windows PC, Mac and Linux via Steam.
To pull off a modern look and feel while staying true to classic beat ’em up style, the Shing! team worked to strike the best balance between complexity and accessibility. The result is a unique control style designed around the right analog stick, making it a breeze to pull off angled slices, counters, aerials and more in fast-paced combat. Your band of wisecracking warriors each have their own strengths, and you can swap between them in an instant in a rich 2D world brought to life with colorful 3D artwork.
