The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release of Shadow Warrior has been delayed to October 24, Bandai Namco has announced. The game was previously scheduled to release in September.

The new date was revealed in a revised release schedule issued to this afternoon.

"Bringing Shadow Warrior to PS4 and XB1 has proven to be a challenge for us as we want to make sure the player experience is perfect. In play testing we have been focusing in on the controller inputs and response," said Flying Wild Hog in a statement.

"We recognized that we needed more time to improve this as Shadow Warrior is an old school FPS and this demands perfection. Sadly this means a small delay in the release date, but Lo Wang needs to be at his best on these shiny new consoles".
