Release Date Announced for Shadow Warrior

By Andy Mills, 2 years ago
The last time we heard any details about Shadow Warrior, a vague release date of "late September" was given. Announced in conjunction with Bandai Namco Games Europe - who will be handling retail distribution of the game in Europe, the Middle East and Australasia - Devolver Digital revealed that Shadow Warrior will be released on September 26th, exactly a year after the PC version was released. So they were right when they said late September, I suppose.

In addition to the release date, there was also the news that there will be all-new content coming exclusively to the console versions of Shadow Warrior. This new content will take a few forms, including an Arena Mode in which Wang will face off against waves of enemies, an all-new campaign featuring the head of the Zilla Corporation, and some new weapons comprising of the sledgehammer from Serious Sam 3: BFE, the katana from Hotline Miami, the "Zilla Enterprises Z45" katana and the "classic Shadow Warrior" katana.

While there seems to be no set in stone release date for North America, standard video game release logic dictates that Shadow Warrior will probably be releasing the Tuesday immediately before the European release date, which will be September 23rd. We'll keep you up-to-date if anything changes on that front.
