Developer Messhof Games have released a new trailer for Nidhogg 2. You can check out the gruesome clip below which features giant worms, spilling guts and stabbing galore.
The good news is that Nidhogg 2 is also now available to pre-order at a discounted 15% off price from the PlayStation Store. Nidhogg 2 is the sequel to the duelling game Nidhogg which released back in 2014. The art style is wildly different this time around with slobbering and colourful mutants taking the place of the stick figures from the first game. Creator Mark Essen explained the change in aesthetic in an interview with the PlayStation Blog stating:
“It seemed silly to use all this potential on pixelated stick figures. So, instead of minimalism, why not try out some maximalism? Animated faces, sweet outfits and hairstyles, bustling environments – the doors had swung wide and Nidhogg 2’s visual style was born.”
Nidhogg 2 comes to PC (Win/Mac) and PlayStation 4 on August 15th.
