The Messenger will bring its ninja rap to PS4 on March 19

Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go!

The wait is over. Sony and Devolver Digital have finally announced that Sabotage Studios’ excellent retro-styled platformer, The Messenger, will be arriving on PS4 March 19.

Already available on PC and Nintendo Switch, The Messenger is a throwback to the rock-hard NES platformers of yore, particularly the Ninja Gaiden series. Our titular hero must traverse a series of hazard-filled stages in order to deliver a mysterious scroll. This simple premise soon unfolds into a paradoxical, time-warping adventure.

Released in August 2018 to very high praise from critics and fans, this PS4 release will allow a wider audience to experience this classy old-school tribute to a golden era of platform games. The Messenger launches on PS4 March 19. A new expansion is also expected to launch on all platforms this Summer.
