Shadow Warrior 3 Electrifies in Motoko’s Thunderdome

Electrifying Fun in Motoko’s Thunderdome

Shadow Warrior 3 | Motoko's Thunderdome

On May 13, 2021, Devolver Digital showed off yet another new stage of Shadow Warriors 3 called Motoko’s Thunderdome. While it’s easy to assume the titular Motoko was the latest boss reveal, they’re actually something else. Though not directly shown, they aid you with lightning strikes that hit foes. Which is good, since Motoko’s Thunderdome is full of enemies that want to murder you.

Though this trailer doesn’t include a new Gore Weapon, it did show off the lovely Grenade Launcher. It was put to especially good use on frozen foes, shattering them to bloody pieces. The stage also seemed to feature bosses from previous Shadow Warrior 3 reveals, such as the Gassy Obariyon.

Want to know more about the game itself? Check out this blurb from Shadow Warrior 3’s Steam page:

“Fallen corporate shogun Lo Wang and his former employer turned nemesis turned sidekick Orochi Zilla embark on an improbable mission to recapture an ancient dragon they unwillingly unleashed from its eternal prison. Armed with a punishing mix of blades and bullets, Lo Wang must traverse uncharted parts of the world to track down the dark beast and push the apocalypse back yet again. All it will take is the mask of a dead god, a dragon’s egg, a touch of magic, and enough firepower to hold off the impending cataclysm.”

Although there’s no set release date for this hotly anticipated title, Shadow Warrior 3 is slated to launch sometime this year for PlayStation, XBox, and Steam. Want to learn more about Motoko’s Thunderdome? Excited to see it in action for yourself? Of course you are — you can watch the trailer below, since it’s short and sweet. And be sure to stay tuned to HPP for more news from amazing developers Flying Wild Hog and indie publishing powerhouse Devolver Digital!
