Cult 90s action-adventure game Shadow Man is on its way back from the dead. Nightdive Studios' Shadow Man: Remastered is coming to PC in April, and will bring with it a bevy of new features, including content that was cut from the original experience. It's also coming to consoles soon.

What do we know about Shadow Man: Remastered?

It's worth noting that although the original Shadow Man is currently available on Steam, this isn't simply a re-release of that game. Rather, it's a remaster that comes with several new features. Shadow Man: Remastered will support 4K widescreen monitors, and will revamp the visuals of the original game by adding new features like dynamic shadow mapping, anti-aliasing, and per-pixel lighting. You're also getting a bunch of new content "cut from the original game". Unfortunately, we don't know what that content is yet, so you'll just have to grab the game to find out.

Shadow Man was a classic cult 90s action-adventure game released for PC, Nintendo 64, PlayStation, and Dreamcast back in 1999. It followed the adventures of Michael LeRoi, one of many people to hold the title of "Shadow Man". LeRoi must battle his way through several spooky locations including Louisiana, New York City, and the dark and dismal Deadside in order to prevent the supernatural from taking over the land of the living. Shadow Man: Remastered won't change the gameplay, so if you love the original's mixture of platforming and combat, you'll still love it now.

Shadow Man: Remastered launches for PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store on April 15th. It's also coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch sometime soon. You'll almost certainly be able to play it via backward compatibility on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S when the console versions do land. If you love all things Shadow Man, be sure to check out the upcoming Shadowman comic book series reboot, the first issue of which lands on April 28th.
