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.
