Pair up a game that has cultural or historical value with a developer suited to the task like Tecmo Koei and you’ve got a killer combination in the eyes of many at Digitally Downloaded. Based on that criteria, the last console generation’s criminally overlooked Bladestorm: The Hundred Year’s War became one of our absolute favourites, as you can read about in our review. It sure took its sweet time getting to digital platforms in 2013 after a release way back in 2007, but boy did that seemingly unceremonious re-release remind us how great a legitimate revival would be.
But then that theoretically revival was abruptly confirmed this summer in the form of Bladestorm: Nightmare on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One…in Japan, anyway. We got a decent glimpse of the game at this year’s Tokyo Game Show and its strategic action looked stellar to say the least.
But we can all finally stop thrashing about at night and dialing random sleep specialists in an inebriated frenzy as we demand details about a video game. As of today, we’ve got a pair of international release dates to print out and tuck against our collective digital bosom. North Americans will get to have their Nightmares on March 3 with Europeans following suit three days later. Bladestorm: Nightmare will run North Americans $59.99 USD for the retail versions on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. PS3 owners can pick up the digital version for a slight saving at $49.99.
