Namco-Bandai has just released information about a brand new game that will be arriving internationally in 2011, the name of the game is Knights Contract. This information was revealed from the game’s own teaser website. Accompanying said website is a trailer and a couple of screen shots but not much else. However there is a countdown on the website promising a new video in 26 days. What said video will be revealing? Who knows?
This trailer however looks quite amazing and also introduces the two main characters of the game. The man with the giant Dante’s Inferno style scythe is Heinrich, an immortal man. While his compatriot is unfortunately not immortal and indeed can suffer from the terribleness of death, Heinrich is always by her side. While she is unplayable (though this could hint possibly at some co-op action) as the player takes control of Heinrich; Gretchen is a very formidable witch who will unleash her spells upon the enemies to destroy them while at the same time buffing up Heinrich.
Not a whole bunch of information revealed; however this is the very first media release by Namco-Bandai for the game and though things may seem a bit rough around the edges the game has an entire year for polish. Even though the hack and slash game play may seem a bit overdone lately; as in Bayonetta, God of War, Dante’s Inferno to name a few. None of these have had the ability for co-operative fighting, or even a computer partner to rely upon. Look to see more within the next month as the new video is released.
