Shadow Warrior is getting a console port in September
Shadow Warrior, the violent and goofy (what a strange combination) hack ‘n slash re-boot of the classic 1997 game will be available on the PS4 and Xbox One in late September. Devolver Digital and Majesco Entertainment have entered a partnership together to distribute the game to players. Devolver Digital will put the game up on the consoles respective online stores while Majesco handles the physical retail copies.
The launch trailer will immediately confirm if this is the kind of game for you. The katana swipes and ultra-violent blood immediately make me think of Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, and the music is a nice touch too. CJ reviewed the game back in October of last year, so feel free to check that out if you’re unsure of a purchase.
“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,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.
Shadow Warrior will be available for $39.99. Just don’t cut your Wang off.
