Cult Classic Shadow Warrior Coming To PS4, Xbox One In September

Flying Wild Hogs’ bombastic reboot of 3D Realms’ ultra-violent shooter, Shadow Warrior, is getting the next-gen treatment, as Majesco Entertainment announced plans to bring the cult classic to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this September.

Teaming up with Devolver Digital — publisher behind a litany of indie titles, including Hotline Miami — the distributing duo will shepherd the game onto current-gen consoles, where it will be priced at $39.99 in the States. As for other territories, it’s unclear whether Shadow Warrior will launch at a similar price point.

Nevertheless, in a statement, Jesse Sutton, CEO of Majesco trumpeted the rerelease as the perfect experience for fans of the 90s romp:

“Shadow Warrior turns the 90s nostalgia meter way up, delivering big guns, big blades and big attitude laced with humour. 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.”

Billed as the Eastern rendition of 3D Realms’ other gun-toting maniac, Duke Nukem, Shadow Warrior has carved out a niche following since it debuted for PC platforms in 1997. Fast forward sixteen years and Devolver reintroduced the game to PC audiences via digital distribution — namely through Steam and GOG — before it appeared through retail at a later date.

And now, 3D Realms’ ninja, mercenary and all-round badass, Lo Wang, is set make his console debut when Shadow Warrior launches across PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this September.
