'Total reimagining' of Shadow Warrior coming from Hard Reset dev Flying Wild Hog

Hard Reset developer Flying Wild Hog is working on a "total reimagining" of Shadow Warrior, the 1997 first-person shooter from 3D Realms, Flying Wild Hog announced today on its Facebook page.

Shadow Warrior will be released by Hotline Miami publisher Devolver Digital, which hinted at the new game yesterday with a Steam Greenlight page for software named Blade Analyzer Pro. The purported blade-scanning program is said to be made by Zilla Enterprises, which was the fictional syndicate that Lo Wang, the original game's protagonist, fought against after quitting his job as a bodyguard there.

Shadow Warrior is yet another mid-90s first-person shooter to be brought back in recent years; other publishers have resurrected similar titles like Duke Nukem 3D (Duke Nukem Forever), Rise of the Triad (the remake, Rise of the Triad), Doom (Doom 4) and Wolfenstein (Wolfenstein: The New Order).

Details on the Shadow Warrior remake are scant, although there's an official website here with the image above. We've reached out to Devolver Digital for more information and will update this article with anything we receive.
