Black Knight Sword

Latest Trailer Looks Visually Stunning, Super Weird

Black Knight Sword is an upcoming downloadable title from Hungarian developer Digital Reality and cult favorite Japanese team Grasshopper Manufacture. If that sounds like a strange pedigree, you're right on target. This game looks bizarre in just the way I've come to expect and want from Grasshopper's releases.

Check out the trailer below to get a glimpse at the gory, side-scrolling, slash-em-up gameplay. That looks fine enough, but what seems especially appealing about Black Knight Sword is its unique puppet theater style, with shifting backgrounds and cardboard cut-out enemies.

Take a look for yourself below and then read Jeff Cork's impressions from Gamescom to get a little more info on our hopes and concerns for this title.

  • This looks strange enough to be interesting.
  • It does look peculiar. I like the diarama style of the game. I'm curious if there's a real story there, or if it'll be more focused on the side-scrolling action.
