Devolver Digital has announced that Flying Wild Hog’s Shadow Warrior remake will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this fall.
Shadow Warrior was released for PC last fall, and is a reimagining of the classic 3D Realms shooter. According to a press release, Devolver will handle distribution of the game digitally, while Majesco Entertainment will be in charge of the retail release.
“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,” Devolver explains. “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 turns the 90’s nostalgia meter way up, delivering big guns, big blades and big attitude laced with humor,” said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco Entertainment. “This is a must have title for every kind of fan: those who loved the original game, FPS enthusiasts and players looking for a deep next gen experience at a legacy price point. We’re proud to partner with Devolver to bring this highly rated game to the console audience.”
“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 Majesco to put Wang in a box later this year,” added Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.
Shadow Warrior will be available late September on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for $39.99.
