Who’d have thought a pixelated 2D fighting game would be successful? Well, it is. As part of its games showcase at this year’s E3, Sony invited Nidhogg 2 creators Mark Essen and Kristy Norindr to play Nidhogg 2 and play they did!
Watch over 18 minutes of Nidhogg 2 gameplay where we get to see the new environments, animations, new weapons and more. Below is the official Nidhogg 2 game description straight from Sony:
The next installment of the epic award-winning dueling tug-of-war is coming! Stab, shoot, slice, or stomp your opponent to gain control of the screen, then book it to your side of the arena. Before long, a new opponent will appear in your way. If they kill you, they get control. Get all the way to your end of the arena to win–and be devoured by the Nidhogg. Enjoy new monstrous visuals by artist Toby Dixon and bangin beats from Mux Mool, Daedelus, Doseone, and more!
Nidhogg 2 is set for release this summer 2017 on the PS4.
