It’s a shame Shadow Warrior originally came out of 3D Realms and not id Software — a massive opportunity missed for a quad damage joke, I’m sure. Not that developer Flying Wild Hog needs to worry about failed wisecracks when Shadow Warrior 2 is hitting it out of the park commercially and critically, a fact well-evidenced by its “fourfold” sales boost over its predecessor.
The details can be found in a press release from publisher Devolver Digital and the studio, accompanied by the above video providing some “behind the schemes” information on the game’s creation.
There’s also mention of Flying Wild Hog’s plans for Shadow Warrior 2‘s future, including “free content drops” in the form the “Nobitsura Kage”, the signature weapon of protagonist Lo Wang; an “ultra-hard” challenge mode and co-op characters.
Everything is coming up trumps for these guys and honestly, it’s very much deserved.
