The lights are on
Deep Silver and Devolver Digital have announced a partnership that will see one of Volition's most iconic Saints Row weapons in the hands of Lo Wang. If you've played Saints Row: The Third or Saints Row IV, you know this melee weapon by its euphemistic name: The Penetrator.
That's right. If you own Saints Row IV on Steam and you purchase Flying Wild Hog's Shadow Warrior reboot, you'll get access to the giant purple marital aid on Lo Wang's bloody journey. Want to see what that looks like in action? Click here for a humorous animated gif.
Shadow Warrior is out on September 26. You can read our preview of it here.
Our TakeFor obvious reasons, we can't actually show you what a giant purple weapon of this nature looks like as it's cutting down demons. Suffice it to say that it's humorous and a clever cross-promotion.

That's pretty funny.
LOL, imagine if The Penetrator was the default weapon on every game!!!! I can already see people running around with this thing on CoD instead of tactical knife.
I like how the "censorship" really does nothing other than obscure the penetrator's texture. It's still blatantly obvious what it is.
Wouldn't it be crazy if a video game character actually used a *** for its intended purpose!?
Wang is cocked and loaded.
I swear that that Shadow Warrior is Reiner.
