Nidhogg is FINALLY out today in the EU, and to our fans who have been jealous of the US release a few weeks ago, we really appreciate your patience. There were a few snags with QA, but all that is behind us now as Nidhogg is now available in the PAL region! Yippie!
If you haven’t played it already, it’s a stupid-fun two-player fencing-fighting game great for parties and awesome for online and offline play at home. The launch price is £11.99/€14.99/AU$22.95, and PlayStation Plus members get a 20% discount for the next two weeks.
The best part is that Nidhogg features Cross-Buy and Cross-Play; meaning, if you own one, you own them all, and you can play across platforms! If you prefer playing with your friends in person, you can throw a Nidhogg party, since there is a built-in tournament mode for three to eight people.
You can play in single-player mode against AI opponents, or you can connect to PSN over wi fi and play against other players, whether they’re on a PS Vita, PS4, or PlayStation TV! You can even play online across systems, such as: Vita vs PS4, Vita vs PlayStationTV, or PS4 vs PSTV. If you’re out of wi fi range and you just want to play someone on the bus, or on a long car trip with two PS Vitas, you can do that in Vita-to-Vita ad-hoc mode. If you just have one PS Vita and two people, you can still play! The left stick controls one player and the right stick controls the other!
Nidhogg’s soundscape consists of four dynamic songs by electronic music magician, Daedelus. The music track levels change based on the action on-screen, so you’ll never hear the same version twice!
We hope you are as excited to play Nidhogg as we are in bringing it to you — en garde!
