Get Ready For Knights In The Nightmare

By Spencer . February 11, 2009 . 1:17pm

kitn_screens_02 Atlus is bringing it here on June 2 for $34.99. Yeah!


Knights in the Nightmare blends strategy RPG elements with bullet dodging to make a unique game. You control a wisp – not units – with the stylus that activates soulless knights by touching them. More than 100 fallen knights await to be revived in Aventheim. Gather them and, if you desire more power, sacrifice their souls to boost another knight’s stats. Kind of sounds devilish when described that way. While you’re flying around the screen directing knights enemies fire bullets you need to dodge as if you were in the middle of a shooter.


Knights in the Nightmare is a tough game to explain. It’s something you have to see or try for yourself to get. I hope Atlus pushes it by releasing a demo over the Nintendo Channel like Sting did in Japan.


Small update: Here’s the opening movie from the Japanese version and another gameplay video.

    June 2 !?! … I will never understand why Atlus always waits till the last minute to announced new titles. It would be nice if Atlus released the Knights in the Nightmare DHE Series Special Pack. Can’t wait to get back into the Dept. Heaven saga.

    Now where the hell is Draglade 2 Atlus !!!

    • Volcynika

      Last minute? That’s almost 4 months from now…

    • EX_Zephyr

      More than four months isn’t enough for you?! Look at how many freaking games they’ve been putting out lately.

  • ShadowYuri

    This isn’t the last minute, I think there is plenty of time before seeing its release. But this is one game I am really looking forward to, more thant Devil Survivor, actually. Hope Atlus USA offers a soundtrack along with pre-orders.

    Day one!
    Can’t wait to play another fine Sting game :)!

  • Pichi

    Atlus is trying to get me broke, I swear! So happy this is coming!

  • Nekobo

    Bullet hell SRPG? Another quirky Sting game? Sign me up!

  • Sounds weird. I see Sting/Atlus are utilizing their Yggdra Union assets for this, so it’ll at least look pretty nice. I’ll sit on the sidelines and wait for a bit more info.

    Is it just me, or is Sting channeling a very “Quest” vibe these days?

  • Joanna

    Not to sound ungrateful, but why is Atlus suddenly pricing all their DS games at 34.99? (unless this one comes with some nice bonus that we are just not aware of) Still, I very happy to learn it’s being released, hopefully I ‘ll be able to pick it up before I’m gone for vacation :3
    But, oh my the gameplay looks hectic…..hopefully it’s a fun type of hectic :D
