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

DEVOLVER DIGITAL AND FLYING WILD HOG TEAM UP WITH MASTERTRONIC FOR PC RELEASE

LONDON, ENGLANDnbsp;ndash; 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, Montaguersquo;s Mount) to make Shadow Warriornbsp; 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 Wangrsquo;s comical rise to legend.

Shadow Warrior tells the offbeat tale of Zilla Enterprisersquo;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 bladersquo;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.

ldquo;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 loverdquo;, said Mastertronicnbsp; bod, Andy Payne.ldquo;If you want Wang, yoursquo;ve got itrdquo;.

Shadow Warrior will retail atpound;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.
