Shadow Warrior 3 Is Delayed To Next Year

In a move that will surprise no one, in a time where game companies are pushing back games due to development and pandemic-related reasons, the next Shadow Warrior game is delayed.

Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Flying Wild Hog are pushing back Shadow Warrior 3 from its 2021 release window to 2022. The game will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Shadow Warrior 3 pits you as ninja warrior assassin guy Lo Wang who is tasked with recapturing an ancient dragon that escaped from its eternal prison. He, together with ex-boss-slash-nemesis-and-now-sidekick Orochi Zilla, is tasked to stop the impending dragon-led apocalypse through oodles of fantastical stages and levels, using his swords and guns to take care of business.

Here are the game’s features at the “back of the box”:

  • Bring a Katana to a Gunfight – Conduct a symphony of death with each encounter by mixing overwhelming firepower with devastatingly precise katana strikes as you dash in and around the demonic hordes.
  • Fancy Footwork – 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 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.
  • Funny Business – 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.
