Reminiscent of 1997 PSone swordfighting game, Bushido Blade, publisher Kwalee has announced Die by the Blade, a fast-paced one-on-one fighter, featuring one-hit-kill combat, various weapon play-styles, and an online mutiplayer mode. Developed by Grindstone and Triple Hill Interactive, the game is due to release in 2022.
Demanding a calculated strategy, Die by the Blade lists Bushido Blade, Way of the Samurai, and even Dark Souls as inspirations, with every move you make mattering. The game will feature a roster of seven customisable characters, each with their own movesets and weapon, including the swift, precise katana; tactile and manoeuvrable wakizashi; and heavy, brutal nodachi.
With 1v1 battles in solo and online modes, including ranked matches, tournaments, and more, Die by the Blade will be coming to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2022. You can check out some of the game's deadly swordplay in the announcement trailer below.
