Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital announced today Shadow Warrior 2 would release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 19.

Those who purchase Shadow Warrior 2 from the PlayStation Store will also be handed a copy of the original Shadow Warrior.

Basically, those who purchase the game will be upgraded to The Shadow Warrior Collection, which includes a download of the original Shadow Warrior for PS4.

“Shadow Warrior 2 is Flying Wild Hog’s biggest game to date and we’re thrilled that it’s arriving on PS4 next week,” said the studio on the US PS Blog. “Our hope is that fans of the first game will appreciate how Shadow Warrior 2 takes everything to the next level and that new players will enjoy the free download of Shadow Warrior alongside their purchase of Shadow Warrior 2.”

As of press time, we can’t find information on whether the deal is the same through the Xbox Store.

We’ll send a mail, and once we find out either way, we’ll update the post.

Released back in October on GOG and Steam, second entry in the Shadow Warrior series has proved to be very popular with players, as was the original Shadow Warrior.
