BANDAI NAMCO Games and Devolver Digital announced today that Shadow Warrior, a retro-inspired reboot of the 3D Realms' cult classic shooter, will be available this September on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Shadow Warrior is an ambitious reboot, reimagined with a blend of modern design, inventive combat mechanics, and a contemporary retelling of Lo Wang’s comical rise to legend. The game tells the eccentric tale of Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun, Lo Wang, who is ordered by his employer to track down and acquire a legendary blade. 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 next-generation consoles will benefit from a high quality reshaped graphics and boasts tons of exciting content exclusive 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 PlayStation®4 and Xbox One 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.

Shadow Warrior will be available on September 23, 2014 in North America and on September 26, 2014 in Europe for Xbox One and PS4. Check out the official teaser trailer and don't forget to subscribe to XONEHQ on Twitter, Google+, Facebook and YouTube for more Xbox One news.
