Shadow Warrior 3 was unveiled today as publisher Devolver Digital released a 17-minute “glorious” gameplay video.
Unfortunately, the video wasn’t recorded in 4K, but it still looks great.
The next game of Flying Wild Hog will appear on PC via Steam next year, and what we already know is that Shadow Warrior 3 will be a much more focused experience than the previous part, which only had extra content procedurally generated during gameplay.
About the game:
Fallen corporate shogun Lo Wang and his former employer turned nemesis turned sidekick Orochi Zilla embark 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 hold off the impending cataclysm.
Bring a Katana to a Gunfight
Conduct a symphony of death with each Shadow Warrior 3 encounter by mixing overwhelming firepower with devastatingly precise katana strikes as you dash in and around the demonic hordes.
Flow between nimble movement techniques including air dashes, wall running, double jumps, and the fancy new grappling hook busts your combat and movement options wide open in every battle.
Execute Then Annihilate
Execute spectacular finishing moves to claim a piece of your conquered foe and unleash its powers back on the horde in a burst of unstoppable fury and powerful magic.
Dynamic Combat Arenas
Each environment in Shadow Warrior 3 is lined with hazardous structures and devices that can be activated to add another layer of creative choice to the offensive strategy.
Neo Feudal Japan
Trek across a mythic Asian land infused with the magic and technology of ancient samurai, now overrun by the demonic yokai from Japanese folklore.
Brace for expertly delivered one-liners from Lo Wang, pointed banter with Zilla, and an intense thrillride of absurd predicaments on the way to turning doomsday into a new day.
Shadow Warrior 3 is only one of the announced Flying Wild Hog projects in 2020, at least based on an interview with team CEO Michał Szustak.
