Grasshopper Manufacture teases Black Knight Sword

Grasshopper Manufacture, the company of wacky auteur Suda51, continues its partnership with Digital Reality as they work on a new project named Black Knight Sword. A downloadable game for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, the story follows a black knight who has teamed up with a sword spirit to take down a beautiful but evil princess. Seems pretty straightforward, until you remember that Grasshopper Manufacture is making it.

Black Knight Sword is a sidescroller framed as a play, with colorful graphics that look like cardboard cut-outs. Since Digital Reality is from Hungary, there's some European art design in there too. Former Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka seems to be in charge of the sound, so that's always a treat.
