The brilliant fencing game is set to launch on PS4 and Vita
We are super stoked to announce that Nidhogg is coming out on PS Vita, and will simultaneously release with the PS4 version! Also, it will be Cross Buy, so if you buy one, you get both versions. How dope is that?!
If you haven’t heard of Nidhogg yet, that’s cool. It’s been around the PC game world for a while, and at super awesome parties around the world. It’s a two-player fencing/fighting game with the ultimate goal of getting eaten by a massive pink dragon, called the Nidhogg.
Nidhogg is pretty much the ultimate party game, but you can also practice with the single player mode against the AI or play with friends or randos online. When you inevitably have a Nidhogg party, there is a built in tournament mode for 3-8 players. We had some crazy high stakes tournaments at EVO.
You can also toggle a bunch of different variants on and off, or combine them for endless weirdness (baby mode + spine swords?).
The soundtrack consists of four dynamic (epic!) electronic tracks by the world famous musician, Daedelus. The music track levels change based on the action onscreen so it is always (subtly!) changing. You’ll never hear the same exact version twice! Take a listen to the clouds level here.
PS Vita is a great way to play Nidhogg. You can play in single-player mode against the AI opponents, of course, but you can also connect to PSN over wi-fi and play against all the other players out there, whether they’re on a Vita or PS4. The PS4 version works online as well, and you can even play online across systems (Vita vs PS4!).
If you’re out of wi-fi range and you just want to play someone on the bus you can do that in Vita-to-Vita ad-hoc mode. If you just have one Vita and two people, you can still play! The left stick controls one player and the right stick controls the other!
Our company, Messhof, has been working with Code Mystics to bring out Nidhogg for PS4 and PS Vita and we can’t WAIT to share it with you! See you online!
