Dennation, the developer behind Hotline Miami, announced that it will donate one of its weapons to the Shadow Warrior remake that will release on September 26, 2013 for PC. To fit the latter’s oriental style, the slashing katana from Hotline Miami will become available to those who preorder their Shadow Warrior copy as the special edition.
Steam has the original Shadow Warrior available for free, with a deluxe version for a moderate price. However, the remake will come with sparkly new graphics and it’s being produced by Flying Wild Hog, which previously also made the shiny Hard Reset shooter.
Both Hotline Miami and Shadow Warrior have the same publisher, namely Devolver Digital. We’re absolutely a fan of more crossover events such as these occurring.
