Grasshopper Manufacture’s latest action-platformer Black Knight Sword has launched on Live Arcade and PSN. The D3Publisher and Digital Reality co-published $9.99/800 MS Point download features The Black Knight on a quest to end a demented princess’ tyrannical reign in a Suda 51-directed tale of bloody pop-up-book-styled mayhem.
Perfecting the blend of traditional side-scrolling action with a one-of-a-kind bizarre world, Black Knight Swordpresents an unprecedented visual style. In this modern and interactive take on a classic fairy tale, Black Knight Sword is a throwback to the 16-bit era with simple, yet addictive gameplay within a stylized hand-drawn puppet theater world. As an intriguing “Interactive Kamishibia” (paper drama), Black Knight Sword unfolds similar to a virtual pop-up book filled with memorable creatures to encounter and addictive challenges to overcome.
