King’s Knight was first released in 1986 for Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), and Square Enix today announced the sequel at Tokyo Game Show 2016, King’s Knight: Wrath of the Dark Dragon. Other than being a mobile game, it is also part of the Final Fantasy XV’s expanded universe. The vertical combat aspect is somewhat retained, and there is also now an option for 4-player co-op.
It seems there are 4 main characters in King’s Knight: Wrath of the Dark Dragon, with more available to be recruited. According to reports, the game does not have a direct relationship with the lore of Final Fantasy XV, but one of the mobile games the main characters can be seen playing. Pre-registration is now going on in Japan, with a launch for iOS and Android devices scheduled later this year.
