Black Knight Sword looks like an interesting computer game; not just because it describes itself as a dark fantasy. It also describes itself as “interactive kamishibai“. If you’re not familiar with kamishibai it’s paper drama theatre and in Black Knight Sword players control the figures. Historically, it was often monks who told the story.
Gameplay is a side-scroller but seems to look different enough to suggest it’ll not feel like an also run. I wonder if it’ll feel like LittleBigPlanet at all.
In the game the black knight isn’t the baddie. He’s the chap who must free the world from the evil princess. A nice twist. There are some screen grabs below the teaser trailer.
The game doesn’t have a release date yet but is slated for both the PS3 and the X360.
