Ringo walks a path of honor (when not chilling under a tree) with the new Shogun Ringo skin, available in our next update alongside the mysterious “skins system.”
IN-GAME MODEL CLOSEUP & LORE
It is said there was once a shogun named Ringo who hunted the golden jungle dragon. He spied it in the distance, took careful aim and shot the dragon straight through its heart. However, when he crept forward to confirm his kill, gun drawn, he discovered that what he had shot was not a dragon, but a golden rock.
Carnies near and far spoke of his legendary shooting — for Ringo’s bullets could pierce solid stone. But when he tried to repeat his feat, Ringo’s bullets bounced off the golden rock again and again. Ringo’s beliefs shaped his reality, and once he knew a new “truth,” the golden target became impenetrable.
NEW RINGO LORE STORIES:
THOUGHTS FROM SUPER EVIL ART DIRECTOR CHAINSAW
Super Evil art director Chainsaw explains Shogun Ringo’s origins.
“The original idea of Ringo is the ronin. For Shogun Ringo, I answered the question: What if he were a pure samurai, with a purpose?
“Original Ringo fell from grace when he lost his arm. Shogun Ringo decided to be of service rather than being self-serving. He is more traditionally heroic than cynical.”
