It looks like Suda51 and his team over at Grasshopper Manufacture are taking a stab at a side scrolling “Metroidvania” game of their own with Black Knight Sword. Judging by the trailer the studio has just released, this 2D platformer will still have the twisted oddities the developer is known for.

Here’s what the developer had to say regarding what you can expect from Black Knight Sword:
