Shadow Warrior isn't slicing and dicing into consoles until October 24 in the UK, Bandai Namco revealed in a release schedule sent to Joystiq this morning. As VideoGamer reports, a statement from developer Flying Wild Hog suggests the delay to the PS4 and Xbox One ports is likely to be reflected stateside, while both Amazon and GameStop are now listing the US release for October 21.

"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," reads the statement to VideoGamer. "In play testing we have been focusing in on the controller inputs and response. 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."

Shadow Warrior was due to hit North America and Europe next month. We've reached out to publishers Devolver Digital and Majesco to confirm the North America release date.

The "bold re-imagining" of 3D Realms' 1997 shooter hit PC last year, combining FPS and swordfighting gameplay in a more modern, less stereotype-stuffed guise. The new console versions are set to bring a horde-esque arena mode to the table, as well as new campaign content and exclusive weapons.
