Shadow Warrior out on PS4, Xbox One this autumn

UPDATE: Date confirmed, console-exclusive content announced.

UPDATE 29/7/14 11:00AM Shadow Warrior will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 26th September, publishers Namco Bandai and Devolver have announced.

Contrary to what Eurogamer was told just a few weeks ago, the console versions will include some exclusive features, as well as "high quality reshaped graphics".

There will be a new Arena mode for you to face waves of enemies with three environments to battle through. Extra weapons will be added, including Serious Sam 3's sledgehammer and Hotline Miami's katana sword.

Finally, there's new campaign content "featuring the head of the nefarious Zilla Corporation". How lengthy this will be is unknown.


UPDATE 9/7/14 5:00PM The PS4 and Xbox One versions of out-on-PC, retro-remake Shadow Warrior will be released this autumn.

You'll be able to buy it via download or in shops, at a suggested retail price of $39.99 / 34.99, so a bit cheaper than most new boxed console games.

There's no difference between the game on console and the game on PC, a spokesperson for Devolver told me this afternoon.

I'm double-checking final European pricing and will let you know soon.

Shadow Warrior was released, all fluid and gory, on PC last autumn. It seemed to pick up favourable reviews. Eurogamer didn't review it, sadly, because we had our hands chopped off.
