Currently available as a demo on Steam, Towaga Among The Shadows will be coming soon to the Switch.

From Sunnyside Games and Noodlecake StudiosTowaga Among the Shadows is a twin-stick shooter, with the emphasis on defensive gameplay.

In the game, you play Chimù who seems to be the last line of defence on his island; defending it via ground-based combat from a fixed position, up to the skies where you have a little more freedom.

Inspired by animation legend Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack and Dexter’s Laboratory if you didn’t know), Towaga Among the Shadows is a gorgeous looking game, and you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was a spin-off of an already popular animation in its own right.

We wanted to make a fluid arcade action game that made players feel simultaneously powerful and vulnerable

Ryan Granville, Producer at Sunnyside Games

With over 70 stages, there’s a ton of goodies to unlock such as spells, gear, outfit, lore diaries and doors. I added the latter because I’m being facetious. Also, XP allows Chimù to boost their damage-dealing ways, magic potency and health meter. 

Other than the narrative-based story mode, there are also Trial challenges and an Endless Mode for survival fans and boasters of hi-scores in Towaga Among the Shadows. Best of all, there’s over 60 unlockables and 50 achievements – take that time ‘I don’t have enough time in the day’.

Other features, in case I’ve missed ’em:

  • Immersive 2D graphics
  • Intense modes made for scoring
  • Challenging difficulty
  • Local multiplayer mode
  • Items, relics and spells to unlock
  • Various game modes
  • Mysterious back-story
  • Original blend between genres
  • Runs smoothly in 60 FPS

Trailer time?

Towaga Among The Shadows is available during the Steam Game Festival as a playable demo and will be out soon on the Nintendo Switch.
