Shadow Royale returns this season. Take a trip in this terrifying twist of Trios, where any killed Legend respawns in SHADOW FORM. Shadows can run on walls, double jump, revive allies, and deliver extra melee damage. Other Shadows fall with one punch, and their living teammates aren’t far behind. Shadows, both friends and foes, endlessly spawn until their entire squad is eliminated.

This time around, Revenant haunts a new realm for your nightmares. A blood moon hangs over the city in the sky. Walk through the dark streets, Fight in the FRIGHT NIGHT arena, and banish legends to the shadow realm in OLYMPUS AFTER DARK.
