Back in early August we checked out a trailer for Neon Shadow, an upcoming sci-fi first-person shooter from Tasty Poison and Crescent Moon. The trailer in question showed a very interesting same-device multiplayer mode on the iPad, which pitted players against one another face-to-face by each taking control of one half of the screen. It looked like it had the potential to be a really cool feature. Beyond just that, Neon Shadow looked like an awesome shooter overall, and I've really been looking forward to its completion. Well good news for me and anyone who felt similarly, as today Crescent Moon announced that Neon Shadow will be available next week on November 14th, and have released a brand new trailer.

Seeing as Tasty Poison created one of my favorite dual-stick shooters on the App Store, Pocket RPG [$4.99], I'm pretty confident they know what makes for a fun game and will translate that knowhow into the first-person shooter genre with Neon Shadow. I'm really loving the visual style and cyberpunk theme, so I'm hoping the controls and gameplay come through as well. At least it won't be long until we can find out, so keep an eye out for Neon Shadow to hit the App Store next week, and check out what people in our forums are saying about the game pre-release.

    wow

  • Pocketnova

    Yes yes yes. Instabuy.

    Game looks impressive I just really hope it supports upcoming gamepads. Especially the MOGA gamepads. I feel it would be interesting for the split screen iPad feature.

    All in all, can't wait to buy!

  • HansSatori

    Bring on the MOGA gamepad. This game looks legit.

  • jar0d

    I really like FPS on iOS. I will give this one a try. Single and Multiplayer. Awesome!

  • raviadso

    Looks pretty generic. Could be fun. Just promise me that the iAP will be bearable.

    • Josh Presseisen

      No IAP in this one.

        I love you guys. The hits keep coming!

        You should connect these developers with the Strike Wing author so we could run, gun, and fly around in spaceships, too.

      • Josh Presseisen

        now that - would be amazing!

      • Obidab

        Game looks fantastic! Just please add gamepad support!!

      • Josh Presseisen

      • Boris Nguetie

        Oh come on!! You could've leave some room for improvement!!!

      • raviadso

        Nice! Makes me more likely to buy.

  • dariusjr98

    This looks awesome. I've been kinda following it for a while, and it looks like it's shaping up to be a cool game. The graphics remind me of Bounty Hunter: Black Dawn, and with all the hype behind that game, I was still let down by it even though it was fun. I hope this doesn't disappoint.

  • PresidentZer0

    Hell yeah! Reminds a bit of unreal tournament :) online multiplayer? Mfi controller?

    • PresidentZer0

      I hope it will have 5v5 onlone minimum

  • Wave_Rider99

    Played on android, it's pretty good. I don't think many people play it on android as I was unable to find a multiplayer game

  • Gurney Halleck

    I hope this one actually has left-hand support, or adjustable controls?

    • H4nd0fg0d

      Lol, love the name. Love it's origins.

  • Echoen

    Same device co-op? :D
