Fresh cuts: Shadow Warrior image dissects the game’s locational damage

A freshly-posted image from the upcoming Shadow Warrior remake by Flying Wild Hog makes a strong case for the game having locational damage on its enemies. Judging by how many slice points are available on this hapless armoured fellow below, your katana will be working overtime.

Asked whether all foes will have this number of damage/gore zones on them, Flying Wild Hog replied: “Not all of them will be the same and the larger enemies are tougher to take down. All will have copious amounts of gore though.”

The developers also note that some opponents will be smart enough to block your sword (not just with parts of their body,) so you might have to work hard to get those prime cuts.

Shadow Warrior is due to return later this year.
