'Shadow Warrior' (ALL) Gets PS4/XOne Date - Screens

Shadow Warrior is a bold new vision of the 1997 cult classic, re-imagined with a blend of modern design, inventive combat mechanics, and a contemporary retelling of Lo Wang’s comical rise to legend.

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.

Shadow Warrior on PS4 and XOne will benefit from high quality reshaped graphics and boasts exclusive content to make Lo Wang’s adventure even more sanguinarily thrilling:

  • New Arena mode where Lo Wang faces off against waves of enemies in three custom-designed environments
  • All-New Campaign content featuring the head of the nefarious Zilla Corporation.
  • Exclusive weapons including the sledgehammer from Serious Sam 3, the katana from Hotline Miami, the "Zilla Enterprises Z45 katana" and "classic Shadow Warrior katana"

"Our fans have been very vocal about bringing Shadow Warrior to PS4 and XOne so we're absolutely thrilled to be working with our friends at Bandai Namco to have Wang bring a sword to a gunfight" Fork Parker.Devolver, CFO  at Devolver Digital.

“To follow-up with its tradition of distributing very high quality games to the market, Bandai Namco Games Europe teams-up with Devolver Digital to bring a highly-praised game onto the new generation consoles! Thanks to Devolver Digital savoir-faire and Bandai Namco Games massive distribution channels, we are aiming to make this new release a huge success for the upcoming years”. Alberto Gonzalez Lorca, VP 3rd Parties and Business Development at Bandai Namco Games Europe.
