Shadow Warrior Revival Details

We now have an official press release to accompany the new teaser trailer from Flying Hog Studios' upcoming Shadow Warrior reboot, offering new details on the project. They confirm that the game is coming to PCs this fall, adding that a "next-generation" (*hic*) console release will come next year. We also have some screenshots and a fact sheet with new details on the game, saying: "Blending the viciously over-the-top gunplay of its predecessor with the elegant precision of the powerful katana, Shadow Warrior is an imaginative take on the classic arcade-style shooter." Here's word on the story: "Shadow Warrior tells the offbeat tale of Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun, Lo Wang, who is ordered by his employer to track down and acquire a legendary blade known as the Nobitsura Kage. Forced into a timeless battle, Lo Wang learns of the blade’s connection to ancient gods from another realm, pushing our world to the brink of destruction. Aided by Hoji, a banished spirit from this mysterious world, Lo Wang must use a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit to discover the truth behind the demonic invasion and banish the encroaching forces back into the darkness." Here's a feature list:

  • Shadow Warrior Reborn– A bold new vision of the cult classic Shadow Warrior, reimagined with a blend of modern design, inventive combat mechanics, and a contemporary retelling of Lo Wang’s comical rise to legend.
  • Brutal Gunplay – Utilize every gun in your formidable arsenal – from flashy revolvers and quad barrel shotguns to explosive-tipped crossbow bolts and laser-guided rocket launchers – to stop the invasion right in its demonic tracks.
  • Elegant Swordplay – Unsheathe your legendary katana to slice enemies apart with precisely targeted swings or unleash fluid combos and special attacks to cut down hordes of enemies with one swift blow.
  • Powerful Magic– Call upon mystical powers to protect yourself or paralyze your enemies and then use their own severed heads and still beating hearts to pluck the life from your foes and bring them to their knees.
  • Variable Upgrade System - Augment weapons, strengthen skills, and power-up magic through an upgrade system that rewards the violent dismantling of foes and cold hard cash found throughout the game.
