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.
Shadow Warrior 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.
