Grasshopper unveils Black Knight Sword

Stylish platformer on PSN/XBLA next year.

Grasshopper Manufacture has added another title to its burgeoning release slate – stylish downloadable platformer Black Knight Sword.

The quirky 2D side-scroller is being co-developed by German studio Digital Reality – which is also collaborating on Grasshopper's Sine Mora shoot 'em up.

Planned for release on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade early next year, you can get a taste of its stylish pop-up book aesthetic in the off-screen footage below.

Grasshopper – the studio run by No More Heroes/Shadows of the Damned man Suda51 – currently has four announced titles in development. This, Sine Mora, Kinect shooter Codename D and the recently unveiled zombie/cheerleader dust-up Lollipop Chainsaw.
