Nicalis bringing Knight Terrors to Switch, out on October 24

Posted on October 11, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News

Nicalis is keeping up its steady stream of Switch games with another new titles for the system – and it’s releasing very soon.

Knight Terrors is coming to Switch, Nicalis and FreakZone Games has announced. The game is launching on October 24 on the eShop in both North America and Europe.

Here’s an overview:

Knight Terrors depicts the horrifying adventures of a mysterious suit of armor known only as “The Knight.” Armed with a mighty sword and equipped with blood-red wings that allow flight, the Knight desperately races through the countryside in the darkest of the night, never stopping for any respite or consideration. He must face and vanquish a never-ending onslaught of bloodthirsty ghouls, flaming skulls and unspeakable horrors while jumping over spiked pits and flying through small gaps. If he takes three hits or allows three enemies to pass, it’s “Game Over.”

Knight Terrors goes straight for the jugular, engaging players immediately with simple two-button controls, retina-searing sprite graphics and frantic neo-classical chiptunes. Special effects like screen shaking and time stopping magnify the impact of every enemy interaction. Once you’re hooked, the game keeps pulling you back in with earned power-ups, multiple unlockable game modes and high score tracking. What’s more, the procedurally generated levels ensure unlimited replayability—it’s a different game each and every time you play.

We have a trailer for Knight Terrors below.

    No hard copy ;_________;

      Why would a Flappy Bird knock-off deserve a physical release? That stuff should stay on mobile and maybe PC.

        Because…..aliens, that is why Addy!!!

    Oh look a Flappy Bird wannabe with blood and 8-bit graphics and sound to entice both those niches. Pass. You can snap up better publishing rights, Nicalis.

      Not my style of game but I’m not going to bad mouth them. I hope they have great success with it. The more success that indie devs have on the Switch, the better it is for us all.

      • I don’t know… this smells like shovelware instead of a quality release. I could do without heaps of lacklustre filler games cluttering the eShop, really. Success where success is due, I don’t think copying this kind of game is worthy of plentiful sales.

          Only time will tell and they can succeed with this game type if its a quality product. I’m not to going to hate on the game before its been released.
