Is F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch coming to PlayStation Now?

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. Here's the breakdown of whether or not F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch will be coming to PlayStation Now.

Is F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch Coming to PlayStation Now?

Although F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch will be releasing on PlayStation consoles, it does not appear that there are any plans for the 2D Metroidvania-style platformer to be offered on PlayStation Now.

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.

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.

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.
