Shadow Warrior 2 confirmed for next year on PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Lo Wang returns

2013's Shadow Warrior reboot was pretty great. Developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital seem to think so too, as they have just announced a full follow-up, ingeniously titled Shadow Warrior 2. Like most third-party titles these days, it'll shuck the Wii U platform and be released on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2016.

This time, four player co-op ("online" is specifically mentioned) is included, as well as a procedurally generated mode. Customizable gear is in, as well as a level-up system of sorts that will allow you to change your main character's stats by way of "stone" items.

All of this sounds good, I just hope it doesn't get too ambitious. The reboot was excellent because it felt like an old-school experience. This has a lot of moving parts, but I don't have any real reason to doubt Flying Wild Hog.
