Shadow Warrior Revival Planned?

A new website is now live at Shadowwarrior.com, a domain owned by 3D Realms since before the release of Shadow Warrior, their 1997 Build-engine first-person shooter. This is entirely one gigantic screenshot and no details, but the site is a mirror of this subdomain at Devolver Digital which also has this screenshot showing a dead yakuza. This suggests a more realistic follow-up to the first game, which was anything but, as the original Shadow Warrior was filled with tongue-in-cheek humor and goofiness which drew fire from some critics for being racially insensitive and promoting stereotypes, but 3D Realms defended at the time by saying the game was a send-up of bad kung fu movies. The site re-launch coincides with a Devolver announcing a Steam Greenlight campaign for Blade Analyzer Pro which seems to be a marketing spoof. Tying these together is that Blade Analyzer Pro is offered by Zilla Enterprises, which is the fictional evil corporation from the original Shadow Warrior. Thanks Kristian.

I just got confirmation from a Flying Wild Hog dev they are in fact developing Shadow Warrior.

Edit... looks like the website was updated http://shadowwarrior.com/

They are making the game more in line with the original concept to avoid being labeled as racist. I dunno, I thought Shadow Warrior was hilarious and fun. This will be a wait and see for sure.

Disappointing news if true. SW's appeal was its over-the-top nature, especially for Lo Wang.

I'm not too excited about this. . . Defense Grid 2, now that's another story. I know I played SW at the time but can't remember much about it. I know it was hotly anticipated after Duke 3D and nowhere near as good. I was surprised 3D Realms went with Shadow Warrior after Duke. They could have made a Duke sequel with the build engine that would have done well commercially no matter what, and probably would have been way better than SW. Of course all speculation... my gaming memories of that time are dominated by Quake 2.

Great game and some of the best quotes ever.

I am the Shadow Warrior." "You no mess with Lo Wang"; "Who wants some Wang?" "A ninja knows no fear." "I like nuclear weapons." "Pain is for the weak. You look like a stupid! I stick a firecracker in your ass.

"You want to watch Wang wash wang?"

The "vehicles" in that game were interesting.

Cool. I'm not sure they can keep all the racism and bad taste jokes intact in this day and age though...

Shadow Warrior had the most advanced engine of the Build games and was pretty damn solid overall. Blood is way better though and I also would rather have a remake of that! Jace Hall actually tried to get the project going a couple of months ago, but Atari said no.

Allegedly it's by Hard Reset developer Flying Wild Hog

I'd rather see the ROTT remake developers, Interceptor Entertainment, make this. Just the few trailers and Dev diaries released of ROTT proves they know how to modernize, yet stay true to the gameplay.

I think I'd prefer a Blood remake, as long as it isn't like Blood 2.

If they remake this, it has to be done in the ridiculous style of the original. There's no point otherwise.

I remember this fun game, DN3D style humour coupled with ninja weapons. Pretty fucking great, Im hoping it will follow the same style and wont be just another COD clone with ninja weapons.
