The upcoming stylish platformer Lost in Shadows for the Nintendo Wii has been anticipated for some time now. The publishing is being left in HudsonSoft’s capable hands. The game touts a unique, heavily detailed visual style that makes it a very welcome addition to the Wii’s software lineup.
In Lost In Shadow, players are confronted with a mysterious tower in an alternative world. The tower is filled with moving shadows yet at the same time, casts a large shadow on everything beneath it. With the help of a winged sylph known as “Spangle,” players can move lights in the foreground to create new shadowy walkways to previously inaccessible areas. Unaffected by gravity while traveling through this medieval landscape, the shadow boy solves mysteries and fights off enemies who stand in his way. The game’s combination of light, shadow, background and foreground creates a unique blend of novel gameplay features, morphing landscapes and artistic visuals.
Announced today, the game will launch January 11th, 2011. Unfortunately, excited fans have several more months to wait for this ambitious new title. Until that time however, feast your eyes on these lovely new screenshots.
