Grasshopper Manufacture has put out a fair amount of content over the past year. Between development for the likes of Lollipop Chainsaw, and digital endeavors like Diabolical Pitch and Sine Mora, they certainly have shown the capacity to do a lot at once. One title that has been known of for a while is Black Knight Sword, although little else about it ever came out.
Today however it was announced that the game will be out soon. How soon? It will be out next week on December 12th for XBLA. When digital games simply pop out of hiding to release like this it can be either a blessing or a curse. Let's hope word of mouth will remind players about it when it is finally out. Much like Sine Mora, this game was also developed via a collaboration between Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality.
What is Black Knight Sword? It is a 2D game which takes on a very fairytale book sort of world. The graphics look like drawings made of paper and seem to take place on a stage. What we don't know yet of course is how good it will actually be. Here's hoping the distinctive visual style isn't the only appealing aspect.
