Kwalee has teamed up with Grindstone and Triple Hill Interactive to release Die By The Blade on Nintendo Switch next year.
Taking inspiration from games such as Bushido Blade, Way of the Samurai and the Dark Souls series, the developers have looked to deliver “a fresh take on the fighting genre where every move counts.”
With seven playable characters that each have their own unique backstories and customisation options, the gameplay experience promises “a unique fusion of fast-paced, sword fighting action with dynamic one-hit-kill combat, diverse weapon playstyles and online multiplayer.”
Each weapon that you can wield defines your character’s moveset, whether that be the “fine precision swing” of the Katana, the “fast, tactile manoeuvrability” of the Wakizashi or the “heavy, brutal rhythm” of the Nodachi.
“Triple Hill Interactive are a fantastic development team and, as a huge fan of Bushido Blade back in the day, I could not be happier that Kwalee is partnering with them to bring the savage, one-hit-kill game Die by the Blade to PC and Console gamers next year,” explains Kwalee head of PC and console publishing Max Everingham.
Grindstone founder and CEO Peter Nagy adds: “We are thrilled to welcome Kwalee as global publisher for Die by the Blade. It’s exciting to work with a partner who shares our vision and excitement for the game and with their publishing expertise we look forward to a worldwide multi-platform launch in 2022.”
Die By The Blade will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2022.
