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!”

And here’s your author and the original game’s developers in 2011, just for kicks:

A press release for the new sequel states that Nidhogg II is “coming to PC and maybe some other platforms” next year.

Note: The original headline for this story described the game as a Jousting game when it’s clearly a Fencing game. The headline has been changes and the author has been properly skewered.
