Shadow Complex Remastered sneaks onto PS4 in May

Metroidvania comes to Sony's console

The high-definition remaster of Shadow Complex is coming to PlayStation 4 on May 3, according to the PlayStation Blog. First revealed in December, the PS4 release of Shadow Complex Remastered marks the 2.5D side-scroller's first time on a Sony console.

Microsoft and developer Chair Entertainment originally released Shadow Complex on Xbox Live Arcade in 2009. Chair announced it would launch a revamped version of the platformer on modern hardware — Xbox One and Windows PC along with PS4 — at last year's Game Awards. Before Shadow Complex Remastered arrived on consoles, however, the developer made the PC version available as a free download.

That offer has since ended, but both Xbox One and Windows PC owners can now purchase the Shadow Complex remake.

Watch the trailer below to see how the game has changed from its debut seven years ago.
