Gamescom:Grasshopper Manufacture Has a New Downloadable Game

The madhouse that made No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned has quietly lifted the veil on a brand new downloadable title

As seen in the video here, Grasshopper Manufacture has officially (and rather silently) announced a brand new title at Gamescom: Black Knight Sword, a retro-inspired side-scrolling action-adventure game with a papercraft style that calls to mind the 2D segments from Shadows of the Damned.

With an aesthetic described by producer and composer Akira Yamaoka as inspired by "Eastern European animation," including the work of Czech stop-motion great Jan Svankmajer, Black Knight Sword is set to hit both PSN and XBLA. We'll keep you updated as we learn more about this slick side-scroller.
