Nidhogg 2's peculiar art style is a far cry from its pristine, pixelated predecessor, and I can't say I was a fan the first time it was revealed. Based on your comments from its announcement, it seems like most of you felt similarly. The series went from immaculate to revolting as disgusting Play-Doh creatures joust in a garish world of sentient trees and flying snakes with bulgy, bug-eyed faces serving as pure nightmare fuel.
UPDATE 4/11/16: Nidhogg 2 will also leap onto PlayStation 4 when it launches for PC next year.
The redesigned sequel was first announced just over a month ago. It'll come with an overhauled look, local and online multiplayer, single-player and challenge modes and a tasty soundtrack with tunes from Mux Mool, Dose One and Daedelus.
There's still no advance on the vague "2017" release date, however.
UPDATE 25/08/2015 5.46pm: Flywrench is out now on Steam.
In May we announced that minimalist sword fighting game Nidhogg would be coming to PS4 and it's now been revealed that it's set for Vita too.
Sony has revealed a dozen new games heading to PS4. Some are going multi-format too.
Mark "Messof" Essen's minimalist dueling game Nidhogg is coming to Steam on 13th January, the developer has announced.
