Shadow Complex is an upcoming side-scrolling action-adventure video game developed by Chair Entertainment and published by Microsoft Game Studios for Xbox Live Arcade. The game uses the Unreal Engine 3. The game is said to be heavily influenced by Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Super Metroid and Castelvania:SotN… considering the source material I’d say I’m getting VERY excited.

Cliff Bleszinski, a representative of the game’s publisher Epic Games, indicated during an E3 interview that the game is based on the Orson Scott Card novel, Empire, and that the game will dovetail with a sequel to the book due out in the Fall of 2009.

Here is that e3 video:

It has been one of my dreams for Konami to remake SotN with updated graphics. I have even talked to my friends about redoing the classic side-scrolling genre with current-gen graphics. Guess what beeotches, DREAMS come true.

Here is the official trailer:

I’m really surprised that not a lot of people know about this game. I also haven’t really seen any ads online or any marketing at all. The game looks like its going to be awesome and yet I feel that it hasn’t gotten enough exposure. Don’t worry Chair Entertainment, we got your back.

Here is the last video from
They featured the game on GAME NIGHT.

The best thing about this game is that it is coming out in exactly 1 MONTH.

Wait wait, its also only $15…I can’t wait.

So what do you all think? Do I need to relax?  Does the game look good?
