Shadow Warrior 3 announced with a classic Shadow Warrior trailer

News by Matt S.

Devolver Digital and developer, Flying Wild Hog, have announced the third in the Shadow Warrior series, which Flying Wild Hog picked up and rebooted back in 2014. This announcement came with a trailer that is... well, classic Shadow Warrior stuff.

Shadow Warrior is irreverent, to put it nicely. The series has juggled some truly gorgeous production values with some excellent and fast-paced Doom-like action energy, along with some of the most low-brow, crass humour that you'll see in video games. And, we are talking about video games here. Gaining the award for the lowest of low brow humour is genuinely impressive. You'll see a bit of that in the trailer. It's juvenile and silly... but it's hard not to laugh at just how juvenile and silly it is.

From the description of the game: Shadow Warrior 3 finds Lo Wang and his former employer turned nemesis turned sidekick Orochi Zilla embarking on an improbable mission to recapture an ancient dragon they unwillingly unleashed from its eternal prison. Armed with a punishing mix of blades and bullets, Lo Wang must traverse uncharted parts of the world to track down the dark beast and push the apocalypse back yet again. All it will take is the mask of a dead god, a dragon's egg, a touch of magic, and enough firepower to tear down the encroaching Shadowlands.

There's no further details about the game just yet, but Devolver has a stream set for July 12 at 5:00 AM Australian time (July 11 for Americans). A gameplay trailer is promised there, and no doubt we'll get more information regarding release dates and platforms then.
