I don’t know about you boys and girls, but I’ve always been a huge fan of old-school-like arcade games, and especially action/shooting arcade games. Well, it seems like the gaming gods were smiling at me today.
You see, I just found out that the indie games publisher and game developer Baltoro Games (“Urban Flow“, “Paratopic“, and “Fatum Betula“) is developing an arcade action/shooting game called “Knights and Guns”.
As a matter of fact, “Knights and Guns” is said to come exclusively to the Nintendo Switch sometime this year (2021):
“From the publisher of Nintendo Switch titles: Urban Flow, Paratopic and Fatum Betula comes a new arcade game. Coming in 2021, only to Nintendo Switch, Knights & Guns is an action shooting game for one or two players!
Inspired by the classics, developed for the modern audiences. We have decided to postpone the release to Q2 in order to make some more levels, so that we can give our players even more content!” – Baltoro Games via Facebook
However, as awesome as that may sound…Just recently “Knights and Guns” got postponed to Q2 2021…And to my knowledge, the only video footage that’s available for “Knights and Guns” at this time, is the videos that Baltoro Games has released via Twitter and Facebook.
Nevertheless, I’m still very interested and curious about “Knights and Guns”, as I like what I’ve seen of the game so far. That’s also why I’m going to keep a close eye on the development process of “Knights and Guns”.
As for here and now though, here’s what’s known about “Knights and Guns” so far:
Inside the game:
Fight awesome bosses on various stages!
Co-op campaign is the way to go!…
…but feel free to take on the challenge alone if you’re brave enough!
Conquer the non-linear world! Rush through over 150 stages, or enjoy the game at your own pace, looking for secrets and special routes!
60 fps gameplay! Try the different modes! Hunt the monsters! Survive! Play on small, big and narrow maps!
Check out all the awesome suits of armor and, of course, all the GUNS! Lasers, shotguns, grenade launchers, sniper rifles… They are all here!
Knights & Guns brings you to a dangerous world where you will fight, alongside your friend, against demons, ghouls & ghosts. Use shotguns, lasers and the power of chivalry to overcome every obstacle. Become the best version of a knight – one with a gun.
Inspired by PANG, Bug Butcher, classic DOOM, Cuphead, Monster Boy, Mushihimesama, Metal Slug and 19XX: The War Against Destiny.
Knight in shining armor, fight your way… with Guns!
