"Over-the-top gunplay" combined with katana sword play.

Devolver Digital, Hard Reset developer Flying Wild Hog, and 3D Realms are bringing back cult classic Shadow Warrior in a brand new game for next-gen consoles and PC this fall.

The indie game label promises to combine the predecessor’s “viciously over-the-top gunplay” with the “elegant precision of the powerful katana” for an “imaginitive take” on the classic arcade shooter.

Watch the debut teaser trailer below. View the first screenshots at the gallery. Visit the game’s official website here, and its Facebook page here.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    Really hope the game doesn’t take itself too seriously. It doesn’t have to be an obsolete, offensive and irrelevant work that tries too hard to imitate the original, but I REALLY want to put my faith in Flying Wild Hog for this.

    Just give this game Metal Gear Rising‘s combat style and Stranglehold‘s gunplay and I know that I will never be able to let go of my controller.

      It’s probably just going to be Painkiller with katanas.

    Teaser looks pretty good

    Cool teaser.

    Hard to believe 3D Realms is still up and running… That aside, it was quite an interesting teaser. I’m curious about the song playing in the background.
