I’m sure plenty of gamers may have seen this one coming following some not-so-subtle tweets from the Shadow Warrior Twitter account, but Shadow Warrior 3 has now officially been revealed by developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital. Check out the teaser trailer below:
Shadow Warrior 3 finds Lo Wang and his former employer turned nemesis turned sidekick Orochi Zilla embarking on an improbable mission to recapture an ancient dragon they unwillingly unleashed from its eternal prison. Armed with a punishing mix of blades and bullets, Lo Wang must traverse uncharted parts of the world to track down the dark beast and push the apocalypse back yet again. All it will take is the mask of a dead god, a dragon’s egg, a touch of magic, and enough firepower to tear down the encroaching Shadowlands.
“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!”
Shadow Warrior 3 will get a full gameplay reveal during Devolver Direct this weekend on July 11th, so those itching to see Lo Wang in action once more don’t have long to wait. Oh, and if you need to catch up, you can check out our review of Shadow Warrior 2 through this link.
