Devolver and Flying Wild Hog have announced that Shadow Warrior 2 quadrupled its sales compared to the Shadow Warrior reboot from 2013. In addition, Shadow Warrior 2 is the biggest launch of Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital as it was highly praised by both critics and gamers.
Michal Szustak, Studio Director at Flying Wild Hog, said:
“We could not be happier with the reception of Shadow Warrior 2. We’re a small studio with only about 75 people, and each of us poured our hearts and souls into making a bigger, different experience for Shadow Warrior 2. That our fans and critics have largely applauded our efforts means the absolute world to us.”
Devolver released a new video that gives fans a look behind the scenes of Flying Wild Hog. The video covers a variety of topics, including the Game Design decisions, artistic freedom, rabbits in motion capture, and the ‘explosion’ in the Polish game development.
Flying Wild Hog is currently working on the first free content for Shadow Warrior 2. This free content is the fan-favourite katana, the Nobitsura Kage.
Last but not least, Flying Wild Hog is working on updates for Shadow Warrior 2 that will feature new missions, an ultra-serious challenge mode, plus more new weapons, items and Co-ninja pawn.
