Majesco Entertainment and Devolver Digital Team Up to Bring Cult Classic Shadow Warrior to Next Gen Consoles This September

Bold Reimagining of Original Arcade First Person Shooter Coming to Xbox One and PlayStation(R) 4

EDISON, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, and Devolver Digital, kings of fun, today announced a retail distribution partnership to release the retro-inspired reboot Shadow Warrior on the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox One games and entertainment system from Microsoft this Fall.

"Shadow Warrior turns the 90's nostalgia meter way up, delivering big guns, big blades and big attitude laced with humor," said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco Entertainment. "This is a must have title for every kind of fan: those who loved the original game, FPS enthusiasts and players looking for a deep next gen experience at a legacy price point. We're proud to partner with Devolver to bring this highly rated game to the console audience."

"Our fans have been very vocal about bringing Shadow Warrior to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One so we're absolutely thrilled to be working with our friends at Majesco to put Wang in a box later this year," said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

Shadow Warrior is a bold new vision of the 1997 cult classic, reimagined with a blend of modern design, inventive combat mechanics, and a contemporary retelling of Lo Wang's comical rise to legend. The game tells the eccentric tale of Zilla Enterprise's corporate shogun, Lo Wang, who is ordered by his employer to track down and acquire a legendary blade. Forced into a timeless battle, Lo Wang learns of the blade's connection to ancient gods from another realm, pushing our world to the brink of destruction. Aided by Hoji, a banished spirit from this mysterious world, Lo Wang must use a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit to discover the truth behind the demonic invasion and banish the encroaching forces back into the darkness.

Developed by Flying Wild Hog, Shadow Warrior will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 on PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One in late September. For additional information, please visit the official game site at www.shadowwarrior.com.
