Black Knight Sword
Suda 51's Black Knight Sword Bringing Chivalrous Brutality to XBLA Next Week

View author's profile

Strange and fanciful, Suda 51's Black Knight Sword is set to head to the Xbox Live Arcade next week. A nutty side-scrolling platformer-cum-hack 'n' slasher from Sine Mora devs Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality, Black Knight Sword has you battling to rid the world of an evil Dark Princess.

Set on a stage with bizarre Brothers Grimm-inspired art, the game is certainly an intriguing and curious title, featuring bloody dismemberment as the Black Knight cleaves his way through disembodied heads and all manner of weird and wonderful enemies.

Black Knight Sword is set to release on XBLA from December 12th. A price has yet to be confirmed, but you can read our hands-on preview to find out more about the game and check out two new screens below.

@1 - STFU! You may be getting all hard over your 'first', but I'm really, really, really surprised that you were first in the sperm race all those years ago. It baffles me.

This game does look interesting - very reminiscent of NIN2-JUMP - so I think I'll give it a go.

Does not look too promising to be honest, but I'll try out the trial since it's Suda 51. Hopefully I'm wrong and it's great.

It's been a long time since there was a new Arcade I would even consider buying. This looks better then most recent releases, but trial should help me decide if it's for me...

Is it anything like the side-scrolling sections of Shadows of the Damned?

That's exactly what I was thinking.

OT: I enjoyed the last Suda51 game I played (Shadows) and this looks interesting as well. Hopefully it's 800 but doubtful

suda/grasshopper definitely make interesting games. i can't wait to see more on this one. if it's half as fun as lollypop chainsaw, this should definitely be worth checking out.
