    Four Times as Much Wang: Shadow Warrior 2 Quadruples First Week Sales over 2013’s Shadow Warrior Reboot

    Developer Flying Wild Hog’s Fourth Game is the Studio’s Biggest Launch Yet; New Video Goes Behind the Scenes as Studio Prepared for Launch

    Polish independent studio Flying Wild Hog and co-dependent publisher Devolver Digital announced today that the recently launched hit game, Shadow Warrior 2, saw a fourfold increase in its sales through one week after launch over the 2013 Shadow Warrior reboot. Lauded by both gamers and critics, Shadow Warrior 2 is Flying Wild Hog’s and Devolver Digital’s largest launch ever.

    We could not be happier with the reception of Shadow Warrior 2,” said Michal Szustak, Studio Director at Flying Wild Hog. “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.

    A newly released video takes fans behind the scenes with Flying Wild Hog as they wrap development on Shadow Warrior 2. The video covers a variety of topics, touching on game design decisions, artistic liberties, motion capturing bunny rabbits, the Polish game development boom, ramen, and the occasional day drinking.

    Flying Wild Hog is currently working on the game’s first set of free content drops for the community that has made Shadow Warrior 2 such a success. The first piece is the introduction of the first game’s ultimate katana and fan favorite, the Nobitsura Kage, into Shadow Warrior 2. Coming updates to Shadow Warrior 2 will include new missions and an ultra-hard challenge mode along side new weapons, items, and co-op ninja characters.

    About Shadow Warrior 2:
    Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang. Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world he inadvertently corrupted.

    Remarkably bigger in every way than its predecessor, Shadow Warrior 2 has been designed as an open, vertically scalable world to explore. Each new unique environment is jaw-droppingly gorgeous and hosts a procedurally generated loot system so no two playthroughs will ever be the same. The game features up to four-player co-op because hacking someone to death in the face is more fun with friends.
