Knights Contract: “Bandai’s Bayonetta”

knights-contract

Bandai Namco have announced a new fantasy themed action game for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011, “Knights Contract,” and the title was instantly likened to Bayonetta, both for style of action and the presence of saucy sorceress.

Less flatteringly, the usual contrived macho character design seems to have crept in again.

Whatever the quality of the final game, at this stage it certainly appears to have failed in the originality department – a generic Xbox hulk and a Bayonetta clone combine in a staid dark fantasy setting looking rather similar to a dozen other recent titles.

Bandai has even gone so far as to emulate the awkward Japanese English naming of Demon’s Souls
