One of Saints Row IV’s most hilarious melee weapons is making its way to Shadow Warrior.
Game cross-overs have become quite common in video games. They usually involve costumes or weapons or, in some cases, entire games. Today, Deep Silver and Devolver Digital have announced a cross-over that is completely crazy and nuts. A weapon from Saints Row IV will be making its way into Shadow Warrior. The weapon is the Penetrator.
“I’m sorry I can’t really hear you over the sound of all that money being thrown at screens around the world,” said Fork Parker, Devolver Digital CFO. “And I don’t know what to tell you other than you can now wield a giant purple dildo from Saints Row IV in Shadow Warrior. There’s your headline, nerds.”
Those who own a copy of Saints Row IV on Steam and then purchase Shadow Warrior will be able to use the purple Penetrator, which will be wielded like a Katana in the game. Hilarity is sure to ensue.
The Penetrator made its debut in Saints Row: The Third as the primary melee weapon. THQ, which owned the franchise back then, released a limited number of them in real life to select people. It then returned in Saints Row IV as a hidden weapon.
Shadow Warrior is a reimagining of the classic franchise. Like the original, it is still silly and doesn’t take itself seriously. This makes it perfect for the Penetrator.
Saints Row IV is out now on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Shadow Warrior releases on Steam for PC September 26.
