The F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch release date information is great news at the moment as the 2D Metroidvania-style platformer finally has a target set in stone.
After initially being announced last July as a PlayStation 4 game, and claiming a few months later at The Game Awards 2020 that it would come to PS4 and PS5 in Spring 2021, it now seems it's full sail ahead for F.I.S.T. to finally release in the fall.
F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch Release Date Information
During PlayStation's State of Play livestream Thursday, the F.I.S.T. trailer revealed that the action game will release for $29.99 on Sept. 7, 2021 for PS4 and PS5.
Although F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch will also release on PC, as those on Steam can still add it to their wishlists, there's no official word on if the September PlayStation release date would cover this too.
Spearheaded by the efforts of developer TiGames and publisher bilibili, F.I.S.T. is a single-player, dieselpunk Metroidvania action game where the animals of Joffre Street are fighting back against the Mechanical Legion machines that have taken over their world.
In addition to combos, finishers and switching between three weapons highlighting its arcade-style combat, F.I.S.T. invites players to explore its puzzles and overcome "challenging platforming" as Rayton, a rabbit who has been hiding for the last six years since the Mechanical Legion invaded and colonized Torch City.
Rayton, a former soldier in the resistance war, has just decided to reclaim his mechanical fist and save his friend who was forcibly arrested. Little does Rayton know, however, that he is soon to fall into a bigger scheme between the Legion, the Resistance, and the Rat Gang.
