Shadow Warrior 3’s newest trailer is all about the firepower

Boom Shake the Room

Shadow Warrior 3 knows what its audience wants. Apart from those rare occasions when the marketing focuses on amazing-looking, psychotic, demon women, Devolver Digital mostly directs all attention to the sequel’s huge arsenal of ground-shaking weaponry.

This latest trailer is no exception, featuring a little over 90 seconds of explosive action featuring a wild range of pistols, automatic weapons, and heavy artillery — not to mention some pretty brutal melee weaponry for when things get up-close-and-personal. From the fast-firing six shooter “Outlaw”, to the dual-wielding SMGs “Sidekicks” and the land-leveling power of the “Crimson Bull”, Shadow Warrior 3 has the tools necessary to get the job done. Upgrades too? Give the bad guys a chance, man.

Lo Wang is going to need all the firepower he can get his hands on. Facing innumerable odds on his quest to defeat an ancient evil, our hero will run ‘n’ gun his way through Neo-Feudal Japan battling hordes of enemies and towering boss characters. The trailers to date have all displayed Shadow Warrior 3‘s love of incendiary violence and super-fast-paced action, much akin to the pace and power of id Software’s recent Doom releases. Mix in the series’ penchant for parkour, aerial assaults, and grapple hook action, and you might have one of the most breathless entries ever in the FPS cannon… er… canon.

Shadow Warrior 3 is currently in development for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
