Apocalypse Then: Shadow Warrior

On this day in gaming, in 1997, Shadow Warrior was released.

It used the same Build engine as Duke Nukem 3D, and gameplay wise was basically an Asian themed Duke Nukem 3D with many Asian stereotypes.

There were three expansion packs planned for Shadow Warrior, and were started before its release, but disappointing sales compared to Duke Nukem 3D led the publishers to drop the projects. Twin Dragon and Wanton Destruction are available as freeware, and Deadly Kiss remains unreleased.

It was the last game developed by the now defunct 3D Realms to be commercially released before they ventured into the pitfall that is Duke Nukem Forever, which eventually led to the developer’s downfall.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
