Shadow Warrior Reboot Announcement
REIMAGINED SHADOW WARRIOR ON TAP FROM DEVOLVER DIGITAL AND FLYING WILD HOG
FOR PC AND NEXT GEN CONSOLES
- Who Wants Some Wang? -
Austin, TX – Independent developer Flying Wild Hog (Hard Reset) and rogue game
publisher Devolver Digital (Serious Sam 3: BFE, Hotline Miami, LUFTRAUSERS) are
thrilled to announce their collaboration on Shadow Warrior, a complete
reimagining of the 1997 3D Realms cult classic. Shadow Warrior is a bold new
vision of the 1997 cult classic, reimagined with a blend of modern design,
inventive combat mechanics, and a contemporary retelling of Lo Wang’s comical
rise to legend.
“The team here at Flying Wild Hog are longtime fans of the original Shadow
Warrior with its unique combat innovations and distinct setting not seen in
shooters at that time,” said Michal Szustak, Studio Head at Flying Wild Hog.
“The classic arcade-style shooter is a genre we genuinely love, so redesigning
the world of Shadow Warrior and the character of Lo Wang has been a fantastic
project for the team.”
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.
“If you read this far you should know that you tangle with twin female assassins
and slice off demon heads to use as weapons,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork
Parker. “It’s super fucking rad.”
Shadow Warrior is set to launch on PC via Steam and other digital download
service this fall with next-gen console release in 2014. For updated information
