Yacht Club Games announced a brand new title last week. In partnership with Mechanical Head Studios, the ninja game Cyber Shadow is bound for Switch. Rather than working on the game directly as it did with Shovel Knight though, Yacht Club has more of a role as a publisher.

The company was apparently “the only team” considered to help bring the project to fruition. Yacht Club also won’t be a traditional publisher since the company is “deeply involved in giving design feedback – imparting some of the lessons learned from the Shovel Knight saga along the way.”
