Ninja Gaiden lookin' The Messenger is still fire

Footage from E3

Usually when you hear about a cool looking indie joint it's at least five years away. AT LEAST! And maybe it just hit its Kickstarter goal.

Not so for The Messenger, which was announced in January of this year and is still set for a 2018 window on PC and Switch. It looks a hell of a lot like the Ninja Gaiden NES series, which is a-ok with me, but it also includes a mechanic that swaps from 8 to 16-bit -- which is even more okay. Oh and at that point it changes from a platformer into a Metroidvania. I need it!

Catch 12 minutes of gameplay straight from the developer below.
