Available to download on October 24.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth developer Nicalis has announced its new horror-themed game, Knight Terrors, which will be released for Nintendo Switch on October 24.
This arcade-style side-scroller, which is being developed by Nicalis and FreakZone Games, sees players control a mysterious suit of armor known as The Knight, who battles with a sword and can fly with his blood-red wings.
In Knight Terrors, players will race through countrysides to battle all sorts of ghouls, flaming skulls, and plenty of other ghastly enemies in procedurally generated levels. For a look at the game in action, check out the trailer below:
Knight Terrors features simple two-button controls, sprite graphics, power-ups, high score tracking, and multiple unlockable game modes. You’ll have to avoid spiked pits, and it’ll be “game over” for the player if The Knight takes three hits or allows three enemies to pass.
The game will be available to download via the Nintendo eShop in both North America and Europe on October 24. A price has yet to be announced.
