Bandai Namco and Devolver Digital have earlier today announced a brand new retail distribution partnership for the upcoming retro-inspired Shadow Warrior for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms.
For release on September 25th, 2014 and based on the 1997 classic, Shadow Warrior is a reboot of the original featuring a new modern design 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 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.
