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.
