Devolver Digital and developer Flying Wild Hog have announced a new Shadow Warrior game is on its way, called Shadow Warrior 3. This new entry to the hit hit franchise sees the return of fallen corporate shogun Lo Wang. A new trailer can be seen below…
In this latest offering in the franchise, Lo Wang embarks on a mission to recapture an ancient dragon they unwillingly unleashed from its eternal prison. Accompanied by Orochi Zilla, his former employer and nemesis and now sidekick, and armed with a mix of blades and bullets our hero will travel uncharted areas of the world to discover the location of the ancient beast and ensure the apocalypse is pushed back yet again. Can he manage it with the mask of a dead god, a dragon’s egg, a touch of magic, plenty of firepower and some sticky tape?
“We are beyond excited to bring Shadow Warrior fans a completely fresh experience, and we can’t wait to show off the new features we have in store for them. We want to make sure that our fast-paced gunplay sequences, razor-sharp melee combat, and spectacular free-running movement, will get their adrenaline pumping and senses thumping,” remarked Game Director Kuba Opoń.
“But we never forget Flying Wild Hog’s roots and we hope that Shadow Warrior 3 will feel like a homecoming for those fans that have been with us since the beginning. And we can’t wait to introduce new players to Lo Wang, our quick-witted hero with a tongue as sharp as his katana! Shadow Warrior 3 will see him face a threat so huge it may be too big even for him to handle!”
Look out for a gameplay trailer of Shadow Warrior 3 coming later this month. In the meantime, the first two Shadow Warrior games are currently available on Steam at 75% off during the Summer Sale.
