The game was supposed to be released early, however, due to unknown issues, it has been delayed, and now it is scheduled for a release on platforms such as Switch and PC. The soundtrack of the game has been given extra attention to add to the immersion and it was composed by industry veterans like Norihiko Hibino (Metal Gear Solid) and Michiru Yamane (Castlevania).
The story of 9 Years of Shadow is just as generic as a fantasy story that you often get to experience as the world is engulfed in the deepest of shadows.

In her journey, she befriends Apino, a magical bear that possesses extraordinary support magic with healing, protecting, and cleansing the corruption of the darkness.
