Black Knight Sword from Suda 51 hits XBLA next week

Thursday, 6th December 2012 20:39 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Black Knight Sword from Suda 51 will release on Xbox Live Arcade Wednesday, December 12. Much like the Black Knight in Monty Python’s Holy Grail, the fella is missing arms and legs, – wait – no, it looks like he has both sets of appendages in the screenshots posted below. Bummer. Anyway, he can still bite your legs off if he feels froggy enough we reckon. The knight must partake in an adventure through a strange spin on a classic fairytale, where he’s on a mission to defeat the wicked creatures of the night, and make the “super evil Dark Princess pay” some sort of penalty. Shots are below.

    XBLA games have a habit of popping up almost unnanounced. It’s a nice change from the retail game hype machine.

    Not sure what this game is.. some kind of sidescrolling beat-em-up or adventure?

    On the subject of absent XBLA games, what’s happening with LocoCycle?

    Black Knight Sword is the second colaboration between Digital Reality and Grasshopper after Sine Mora, so expect the game to show up on everything else in a few months.

    It looks stunning. The background scrolls instead of the character, so its like a shadow play.
