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

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