Shadow Warrior takes Hotline Miami references to Europe in this exclusive content on Sept. 26

Shadow Warrior is heading to both digital and U.K. retail stores on Sept. 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, distributor Bandai Namco confirms.

The new release is launching with content exclusive to the consoles, including a new wave-based arena mode, weapons including the sledgehammer from Serious Sam 3, the katana from Hotline Miami, the 'Zilla Enterprises Z45 katana and the classic Shadow Warrior katana, along with a new campaign featuring the head of the Zilla corporation.

"Our fans have been very vocal about bringing Shadow Warrior to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One so we're absolutely thrilled to be working with our friends at Bandai Namco to have Wang bring a sword to a gunfight," said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

Shadow Warrior was first released by Hotline Miami publisher Devolver Digital after being hinted at in a Steam Greenlight page for software named Blade Analyzer Pro. The purported blade-scanning program was 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.
