Black Knight Sword Trailer: Bizarre But Intriguing

Black Knight Sword is a collaboration between Suda 51's Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality. With Grasshopper Manufacture being previously responsible for the excellent No More Heroes series, and the upcoming Lollipop Chainsaw, expectations were already quite high about this next venture.

Black Knight Sword combines a side-scrolling hack and slasher with plenty of bizarre enemies and quirky level designs. The officially released gameplay video shows the pop-up scenery and puppet-like characters animate on a curtained stage. This idea of playing through a what appears to be a puppet show is what makes the game so much more intriguing. 

Suda 51 are known for their crazy games, and it although it may be too soon to fully judge this, it appears that Black Knight Sword will be adding to their long list of oddities. 

Black Knight Sword will be released on the Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network sometime in the winter of 2011. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.


  1. Suda 51 is a legend. Shadows of the Damned is bat-shit crazy but really quite underrated - and Lollipop Chainsaw is likely to be just as mental.

    Great post, by the way.


  2. Yeah I'm looking forward to giving a demo a go when it's released!

    Glad you liked the post. :D
