Oh boy, now this is fun. I'm currently in the process of reviewing Flying Wild Hog's reboot of Shadow Warrior (and having a shamelessly immature good time) so this news brightened my day. Devolver Digital, publisher of Shadow Warrior, is teaming up with Volition for a crossover that is...certainly unique. If you own Volition's Saints Row IV on Steam you will automatically unlock that game's "Penetrator" weapon as an alternative to the katana in Shadow Warrior. If you don't know what the Penetrator is I'm sure you can find plenty of gameplay videos on Youtube, but suffice it to say that with so much swordplay in Shadow Warrior, this crossover has a lot of potential for sophomoric laughs.
DEVOLVER DIGITAL AND DEEP SILVER BRING MORE WANG TO SHADOW WARRIOR
- Saints Row IV Penetrates Upcoming Shadow Warrior -
Austin, Texas – September 24, 2013
– Developers Flying Wild Hog and Volition, along with the publisher illuminati of Devolver Digital and Deep Silver, are excited to announce an unprecedented cross promotion between Shadow Warrior
and Saints Row IV
. Through this groundbreaking show of absurdity, owners of Saints Row IV
on Steam will unlock the legendary ‘Penetrator’ weapon in Flying Wild Hog’s reimagined Shadow Warrior
as a powerful-but-elegant alternative to the traditional katana. Yep, read that again.
“I’m sorry I can’t really hear you over the sound of all that money being thrown at screens around the world,” said Fork Parker, Devolver Digital CFO. “And I don’t know what to tell you other than you can now wield a giant purple dildo from Saints Row IV in Shadow Warrior. There’s your headline, nerds.”
Again, not sure what else to tell you all that hasn’t been summed up already. If you own Saints Row IV
on Steam and purchase Shadow Warrior
, you can literally use the big purple Penetrator in place of a katana in Shadow Warrior
to sever the heads off of demons. We know, and yet we can’t really believe it ourselves.
is set to launch via Steam for PC on September 26, 2013. Saints Row IV
is currently available for Steam, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
