#EGX PC INDIE SENSATION SHADOW WARRIOR AVAILABLE IN UK RETAIL FROM FRIDAY 4TH OCTOBER

LONDON, ENGLAND  – Independent developer Flying Wild Hog ( Hard Reset) and rogue game publisher Devolver Digital ( Serious Sam 3: BFE, Hotline Miami, LUFTRAUSERS) have teamed up with indie game publisher Mastertronic ( The Chaos Engine, Dream, Montague’s Mount) to make Shadow Warrior  available in a box through games retailers. Shadow Warrior is a bold new vision of the 1997 3D Realms cult classic, reimagined with a blend of modern design, inventive combat mechanics, and a contemporary retelling of Lo Wang’s comical rise to legend.

Shadow Warrior tells the offbeat tale of Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun, Lo Wang, who is ordered by his employer to track down and acquire a legendary blade known as the Nobitsura Kage. Forced into a timeless battle, Lo Wang learns of the blade’s connection to ancient gods from another realm, pushing our world to the brink of destruction. Aided by Hoji, a banished spirit from this mysterious world, Lo Wang must use a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit to discover the truth behind the demonic invasion and banish the encroaching forces back into the darkness.

“Shadow Warrior was one of the stars of the #EGX (aka Eurogamer Expo) so we moved like Ninjas to sign it so we can put it in a box and give it some traditional games retail love”, said Mastertronic  bod, Andy Payne. “If you want Wang, you’ve got it”.

Shadow Warrior will retail at £29.99 and will be available from GAME, Amazon and all good Indie Stores. For updated information, follow @_ShadowWarrior and @Mastertronic on Twitter or visit www.shadowwarrior.com.
