Following a ratings listing earlier this month, Sabotage has confirmed that The Messenger will be coming to PlayStation 4 on March 19th, 2019.
The game puts players in the role of a young ninja who must carry a magic scroll across a cursed world to save his clan from being besieged by a demon army.
“While the game is considered fair compared to platformers of the early 90s, it still proves very challenging even to hardcore players with its 45 optional Power Seals to collect as well as its unique New Game+ system,” Sabotage co-founder Martin Brouard wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “We also designed The Messenger with the speedrunning community in mind from the beginning and we make a point to wholeheartedly support the scene in any way we can.”
Sabotage is also working on a free expansion for the game called Picnic Panic, which will see players heading to Voodkin Island to put a stop to Barma’thazël’s plan.
The Messenger is available now on Nintendo Switch and PC.
