Shadow Warrior Reboot Announced

Flying Wild Hogs is working on a new Shadow Warrior reboot.

'Tis the season of classic gaming reboots. In the past two years alone, PC classics have been making a return with a vengeance. Syndicate, Deus Ex, Thief, SimCity, Duke Nukem Forever, Rise of the Triad… the list goes on and on. Now, Devolver Digital and Flying Wild Hog, the Polish developer behind first-person shooter Hard Reset, have announced a Shadow Warrior reboot.

For those of you who aren't well-versed in old PC classics, Shadow Warrior was a 3D Realms game developed back in the '90s. As you can imagine, based off of 3D Realms's pedigree, the original Shadow Warrior was criticized for being racist for its portrayal of Asian culture. Though there's relatively little to go off of with the new reboot trailer, the game's aesthetic shows that Flying Wild Hog is going to try and steer clear of the stereotypes.

Lo Wang is making a return on PC sometime in Fall 2013 and later on next-gen consoles in 2014. You can catch a glimpse of the game in its trailer, below:

    Do you want to wash Wang or do you want to watch Wang wash Wang?

    I dunno about looks like they're making a serious game. As the article says, there's no sign of the politically incorrect roots...
    Sure, the original was "offensive," but people need to lighten up. The ONLY reason I remember that game at all is because of how much it made me laugh. It was only a Duke Nukem port, so it's not like the game play gave it any independent place in video game history...

    Unfortunately from the sound of it, they'll be taking the wang out of lo wang.
    You want some wang, won't sound the same as WHO WANTA SOME WANG? :(  I wish people would just quit being PC pussies and get over themselves. Freedom Of Speech. I wanta some wang! :)  Controversy surely would sell more games anyway...LOL.

    I loved this game when it first came out. I'm looking forward to it and I hope they don't screw it up.
