Shadow Warrior Reboot Dated For Xbox One
Posted by Ken Barnes
Guess which month?
Devolver Digital has announced that their reboot of the classic 1997 FPS Shadow Warrior is all but complete, and will be released in - you guessed it - September.
The game is "bold new vision" of the original title, which has been "reimagined with a blend of modern design and inventive combat mechanics." Mixing up traditional FPS gunplay with some seriously bloody hack-and-slashery, Shadow Warrior allows you to unsheath your katana and go to town on the opposition whenever you feel like it. Magical attacks are also on the cards too, as well as an upgrade system to allow you to power up your skills, weapons, and magic, and an arena mode will see main character Lo Wang going toe-to-toe with waves of enemies in three different environments.
The sledgehammer from Serious Sam 3 even gets a look-in as an in-game weapon, as does the katana from Hotline Miami.
There's no word on price as yet, and while the game would probably be best-served as a digital download, it looks like this one is set to hit retail shelves when it's released on the same day as FIFA 15, September 26th.
