Due for release sometime next year Flying Wild Hog's Shadow Warrior 3 looks to be a return the linear action roots of the first game versus the more open co-op loot-style RPG-ness of Shadow Warrior 2. As per this new, and lengthy, gameplay video we get to see Lo Wang and Orochi Zilla embark on their latest adventure. We also get to see the new and vibrant fantastical design found throughout the environments, weapons, and demons.
With plenty of grapple action too, and even more quips from Lo Wang.
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.
With the original Shadow Warrior from back in the days of Duke 3D offering melee combat in addition to gun-play it's cool to see that this side of the experience is getting an overhaul. The fast katana strikes in addition to the ninja-like traversal all look great in motion. Plus, the designs of the demons are both cool and outright bizarre.
Stay tuned to AusGamers though, as we'll be bringing you an in-depth interview with the team at Flying Wild Hog in the coming days.
