GI Joe’s Storm Shadow Is Joining Arena Shooter Cyphers

By Eugene . August 10, 2014 . 5:00pm


Cyphers, the online South Korean shooter from Nexon, is adding G.I.Joe’s Storm Shadow to the game as part of an official collaboration with Hasbro. This is interesting since Storm Shadow is played by Korean actor Byung Hun Lee in the recent G.I.Joe movie.


While the game is billed as a shooter, most people inside straddle both long-range and short-range weaponry with tendencies for one or the other.



In Storm Shadow’s case, he tends to the close range, using leaping attacks, fast slashes and what appears to be an electric storm attack. From long range, he can also throw his shurikens.


Cyphers is out now on PC.

    Oh, it’s from Nexon. Don’t bother with it then.

  • Cool. I don’t know where this came from, but the Hasbro/Nexon deal is pretty neat. Those Transformers cameos in their kart racer was cool enough, but now I kinda just want to see Nexon make a full-blown online G.I. Joe game. Hey, it’s not like GI Joe has had a good game ever anyway.

    Ok, maybe the old NES one :)

      The recent one. The one most people quickly forgot about.

        A shame, because it was actually better than the first one, even if was still just a cumb popcorn flick.

        They’re working in the 3rd one too.

    They better have Snake Eyes as well.
