It has finally happened. Developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital have announced the newest installment of the Shadow Warrior franchise. Shadow Warrior 3 is the latest and greatest in the iconic offbeat first-person shooter.
In this newest game, Lo Wang, a fallen corporate shogun and his sidekick Orochi Zilla go out on an adventure to capture a dragon that was once trapped in an eternal prison. Our hero will scour different parts of the world equipped with a mix of bullets and blades to find the dragon and stop the apocalypse from happening. To save the world, he will need firepower, a dragon’s egg, the mask of a dead god and a little bit of magic.
Game Director Kuba Opon has this to say about Shadow Warrior 3: “We are beyond excited to bring Shadow Warrior fans a completely fresh experience and we can’t wait to show off the new features we have in store for them. We want to make sure that our fast-paced gunplay sequences, razor-sharp melee combat and spectacular free-running movement, will get their adrenaline pumping and senses thumping. 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.”
