It's getting harder and harder to think of new ways to incorporate the word "Wang" into the opening paragraph of news stories about Shadow Warrior 2 trailers—in this case, a full 15 minutes of footage. I guess I could ask if you want to stick some Wang in your eyes and ears? No, that'd be weird. Stare fixated at more Wang? Hmm, possibly. Drool insatiably at the prospect of getting your hands on Wang? Yeah, that'll do.

Shadow Warrior 2 is out next year, so that's how long you'll have to wait before your grubby mitts are back on that Wang.

Four-player co-op and missions into procedurally-generated lands are the two biggest shiny new things Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] will bring, publishers Devolver Digital announced this afternoon following a teasingly short teaser campaign.

Lo Wang will return in 2016 as a mercenary murdering folks and swiping loot while trying not to be murdered by demons. This time he’ll have friends to help with that. Also guns, a sword, and magic powers, same as ever. Come have a look in the first trailer.

Less than a day after Shadow Warrior 2's teaser announcement, a full trailer has arrived. 

I can honestly say that it surprised me. At no point was I asked if I wanted some more Wang, which seemed like the obvious joke to make. I was, however, asked the less sequel-specific question, "Who wants some Wang?" So let's not go praising its restraint just yet.

Shadow Warrior, of course, was not a game known for its restraint. Judging from this CGI depiction of a demon samurai slicing a car in two, the sequel will be similarly over-the-top.

As hinted in the trailer, Shadow Warrior 2 will feature four-player co-op. It also promises "daring missions" across procedurally-generated environments, plus "new weapons, armor, and arcane relics of legend."

You'll be able to see the first Shadow Warrior 2 game footage at E3, on June 15 at 8.30pm BST, through Twitch.tv/twitch.

Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang. Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world. Battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in spectacular procedurally-generated landscapes to complete daring missions and collect powerful new weapons, armor, and arcane relics of legend.

Evidence points toward an official Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] announcement in the near future (and, hey, isn’t E3 in the near future?). I have collected the evidence in a small pile, along with some lint and pistachio shells.

UPDATE: The full trailer has been released, and four-player co-op announced. Head here for more details.

ORIGINAL: Prepare to carve baddies up with dual swords and even sometimes shoot them, because Shadow Warrior 2 has been confirmed. Publisher Devolver Digital confirmed the news today via Twitter, linking to an official Shadow Warrior 2 website containing absolutely zero information beyond the above teaser trailer. Given that E3 is next week, we'll likely hear more about the game then. But what do you need to know? It'll be a violent, fast-paced FPS with swords and silly jokes.

Shadow Warrior released in 2013 as a reboot of the classic '90s 3D Realms shooter. If you're keen to give it a go, it's currently 90 per cent off over at GOG.
