Knights Contract Screens Show Devious Traps

By Spencer . July 26, 2010 . 9:35am

Like a certain gun toting witch from Platinum Games, Gretchen also has an arsenal of magical traps. She’s the witch in Knights Contract that cursed Heinrich with immortality. While players can’t control Gretchen, she can make ethereal bear traps and guillotines appear to dice up demons.


With powers like these you may wonder why Heinrich is carrying Gretchen like a princess. Protecting Gretchen one of the key gameplay mechanics. If she dies in the jaws of a hungry demon, Heinrich dies too.

    For still screens these look ugly.

    Whats with Japan’s new fascination with huge manly guys with white hair. They must be hearing all the anti-weeaboo anti-JRPG ranting from the west and now are afraid to make more androgynous heroes? Japan just stick to what you know best. It’s not like the West tries to copy your anime (cough Avatar cough)

      Before I saw your post I thought this was a Western game. It’ll be interesting to see how this sells, if trying to be more Western pays off.

      It’s the アッー!!disease

      Well at least he’s well made, unlike that hulk from gestalt

        To be fair, the guy from Gestalt had a realistic looking body at least.
        Heinrich on the other hands looks like his mother has been feeding him steroids ever since he was a baby, like those guys from Gears of Wars.
        Not that I’m complaining, at least the guy can handle swinging that gigantic scythe.

    ahh geez, this game looks like one long escort mission and I hate those

  • I’m impressed with I have seen so far of Knight’s Contract. Here’s hoping for a stateside release…
