Developer Halberd Studios with publisher Freedom Games will be releasing the side-scrolling metroidvania 9 Years of Shadows in late 2022. The game follows the halberd-wielding Europa as she tries to undo a curse that took hold over the world nine years prior to the start of the story by traveling to its source. Fortunately for Europa, she will not be alone, as the ghostly teddy bear Apino will assist her with his support abilities. Europa can don different elemental armors to gain new abilities and skills as she traverses the depths of Talos Castle.

A new trailer was released during Summer of Gaming 2022:

9 Years of Shadows is a game that Metroidvania fans might want to take special note of! The title is going to be released in Q4 2022 on PC, with a Nintendo Switch release planned at an unspecified time. Stay tuned to RPGFan for further coverage.
