Nidhogg 2 Coming To PlayStation 4 Next Year

The recently-announced Nidhogg 2 features a very divergent art style from the first, with fewer insane clouds whizzing by and more monstrous-looking fencers and giant worms.

On the Official PlayStation blog, Kristy Norindr, co-founder of developer Messhoff LLC, announced the game will also be available on PlayStation 4 sometime next year. 

Norindr also spoke about the decisions to change up the game's art style for the sequel. "We wanted to flesh out the world of Nidhogg and for us that meant a total graphical refresh," she said. "Since there is a lot of back and forth within each game, we wanted the details to slowly emerge while you’re playing."

Our Take
I'm not sold on the art style yet, but I get the decision to move away from the original's art. Messhoff wants the game to feel more like a place, whereas the original's art style felt more like an abstract expression. But no matter how it looks, I'm hoping Nidhogg 2 is as good a party/fighting game as the first one was, because I loved it quite a bit.
