After 15 long years, the sequel to Duke Nukem 3D was finally released in 2011. Now, one of 3D Realms' lesser-known games is about to get a sequel, too. Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports that there's a new Shadow Warrior game in development—and we now have a glimpse of it in a teaser video and some screenshots.
The video is only about a minute long. It shows what appears to be an in-game rendition of a Japanese temple, some mutilated bodies, and puddles of blood.
Well, that looks intuiguing. I'm getting kind of a Kill Bill vibe from it, although that may be because I haven't seen the movie in a while. Either way, the choice of music seems weirdly appropriate.
As for the screenshots, you'll find them in the gallery below. They depict some of the game's ugly-looking bad guys posing angrily in various settings.
I remember enjoying the original Shadow Warrior quite a bit, although looking back, some of the racist stereotypes in that game were a little overdone. I hope the sequel retains the satisfying first-person slashing gameplay and introduces some better jokes. I guess we'll find out soon enough. Developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital are quoting a fall release time frame for the game.
