Shadow Warrior screenshot of some demons

The Humble Store is currently running a sale on anime-themed Bandai Namco games, and in order to drum up a bit of excitement they have decided to start off the event with a free game. As you might imagine from the title alone, the game in question is the modern reboot of Shadow Warrior - a game that's all about high-octane action and terrible Wang-related puns.

Shadow Warrior will be free to grab for only two days, so if you have even an inkling of interest in fast-paced shooters of old makes sure to head over to the Humble Store as soon as you can. And while you're there you might as well check out the currently ongoing sale as it features some pretty damn good games, as long as you're into JRPGs anyway.

As for whether Shadow Warrior is even worth your time and effort, I think I can safely say the answer is a resounding "yes". Its fast paced, the weapons are all awesome to use, and slicing up hordes of demons into tiny little pieces is something that will never, ever get old. What might come as the biggest surprise, however, is that this Shadow Warrior genuinely has a nice story hidden behind all of the puns! So if you're up for an extremely cheap and extremely enjoyable callback to the oldschool FPS games, then by all means give Shadow Warrior a try. And finally, here's the launch trailer just to give you an example of what I mean. Enjoy!
