Square Enix’s ‘King’s Knight’ Is a Dungeon Crawler Vertical Shooter Hybrid at PAX West

While Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition was stealing the show when it came to mobile stuff in the Square Enix booth at PAX, the upcoming King’s Knight was nothing that we expected. It’s basically a strange combination of a dungeon crawling hack and slash type game that got mashed up with a vertical shooter, complete with gigantic bosses. Check it out:

As we discuss in the video, I sort of think a game like this is going to play way better on the smaller screen of the iPhone than it does on the giant iPad Pro they were running the demo on, but there’s definitely some really great potential here. We’re always fans of these sort of strange mashups, and it’s cool to see how well this one worked.
