Shadow Warrior 2 was first announced in 2015. The game is a direct sequel to 2013's Shadow Warrior, which itself was a reimagining of the 1999 game of the same name. Shadow Warrior protagonist Lo Wang has returned for the sequel, which continues the story from the previous game. Shadow Warrior was positively received in GameSpot's review, earning a 7 out 10 for its well-executed humour and high-energy, colourful shooting action.

Earlier this year, we spoke to writer and narrative designer Slawomir Uliasz about the game's comparisons to Doom, the challenges of writing jokes that align with the game's trademark humour, and more.
