Fencing Game Nidhogg Is Getting A Sequel With A Very Different Look

Indie game favorite Nidhogg will look less abstract in its newly announced 2017 sequel. Developers Messhoff just revealed the game, titled... Nidhogg II, with a trailer and some PR-provided bullet points:

- Completely overhauled detailed environments and animations

- 10+ levels of fencing goodness

- Local and online multiplayer and tournament mode

- Play single-player against a series of AI opponents with occasional special challenge rounds

- New soundtrack featuring music by Mux Mool, Dose One, Daedelus and more!

The developers are promising “The same fast-paced hilarious stabby action you’re use to from the first Nidhogg, with more weapons, more music, more levels… and MORE FUN!”
