Ninja Scrolls is not a Skyrim sequel.

Celebrating the launch of the stealthy ninja platformer ‘The Messenger’, Sabotage and Devolver Digital have released the ‘Shinobi No Kikan’, a short film directed and produced by Imagos Films that mixes live action, animated sprites, and gameplay into an abridged story of the game’s hero as he sets out on his seemingly impossible quest.

Tasked with carrying an all-important ‘Ninja Scroll’ a nameless ninja warrior must battle a demon army (always thirsty for fresh ninja scrolls) and deliver it to its recipient if he is to save his clan and village. Although sounding like a standard trip to the post office on a Saturday morning, this ninja action adventure is set to slash its way onto your console.

The Messenger is out now on Nintendo Switch and PC.
