"Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya..."

If there's one thing Sony's system's are sorely lacking, it's games about fencing that feature giant cosmic worms which devour the inferior player. Luckily, Nidhogg is here to fill that hideously underrepresented niche. The inventive indie joins recent PlayStation Plus freebie Sportsfriends as an example of smaller developers making compelling couch multiplayer experiences.

This particular title sees you and a friend duking it out in fancy fencing attire, and also attempting to gain territory while forcing your opponent back. If this sounds like your cup of tea, you'll be happy to hear that the title will launch on PS4 and Vita in North America on 14th October. What's more, it will be cross-buy. Huzzah. Unfortunately, no release schedule has been announced for Europe yet, but we suspect it won't be too far behind.

What do you make of Nidhogg's stylish blend of action and strategy? Does it look like the type of game that will destroy all your friendships in the best possible way? Raise your rapier in the comments section below.
