The Messenger Gets a PS4 Port on March 19

Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Sabotage Studio have announced a PS4 port for The Messenger.

The throwback action platformer / time-traveling adventure game is coming to the Sony console on March 19th. A free expansion, “Picnic Panic,” is coming to all platforms sometime this summer.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


As a demon army besieges his village, a young ninja ventures through a cursed world, to deliver a scroll paramount to his clan’s survival. What begins as a classic action platformer soon unravels into an expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor.

Key Features:

  • Dynamic, acrobatic gameplay and ultra tight controls worthy of an epic ninja adventure.
  • Character upgrades, new abilities, hidden levels, and branching paths to discover.
  • Meticulously designed 8-bit and 16-bit sprites, animations, and backgrounds in the spirit of the classics.
  • A memorable cast of offbeat villains, bosses, and associates.
  • Original soundtrack by renowned chiptune composer Rainbowdragoneyes, handmade using Famitracker.

The Messenger has been available for Nintendo Switch and Windows PC (via Steam).
