Shadow Warrior 3, the latest in the line of gut wrenchingly good ninja warriors, has been announced.
The news that Shadow Warrior 2 will get a follow up has just been dropped by Devolver Digital and the latest entry in the carnage that is the Shadow Warrior franchise marks the return of the fallen corporate shogun Lo Wang. Set to launch into the type of corporate takeover that makes billionaires weak at the knees, players will find Lo and his former employer turned nemesis turned sidekick Orochi Zilla heading off into the unknown to recapture an ancient dragon that is loose upon the world.
As outlandish and off the wall as it is violent, the Shadow Warrior series arms players with a mix of deadly weapons. Form sharp blades and explosive bullets to bare-knuckle ballet, Lo Wang and team will traverse uncharted parts of the world to track down the dark beast and push the apocalypse back yet again. Thankfully, you can get a glimpse of the upcoming fight to save the world in the teaser trailer, released alongside the reveal.
“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.”
While you’re busy checking out the action above, set a date in your calendar for Devolver Direct on July 11 at 12:00PM Pacific via Twitch, where Devolver will attack us with a full-on gameplay trailer from Shadow Warrior 3. While we don’t know when Shadow Warrior 3 will strike exactly, it looks like it’ll be worth the wait.
