Undead Knights is an unusual crossover between Dynasty Warriors and Pikmin, if the latter had zombies instead of walking plants. In addition to attacking their former allies, zombies are used for light puzzle solving.
Back at E3, Tecmo showed me how to make a zombie ladder, which sounds just like what it is — a ladder made of zombies. Zombie ladders allow players to climb over walls and enter bases. You can also order zombies to siege bases and fling them like undead graves.
Conceptually, Undead Knights sounds like a fun twist on the hack and slash genre. We’ll find out for sure when Tecmo releases it in Japan on October 15. A North American release is scheduled around the same time. We’re also getting the game this fall.
Along with the announcement Temco gave us a step by step illustration of knight to zombie corruption. Enjoy!
