Knights Contract Works Its Magic This February

What witch doesn’t wish she had an executioner at her command? Slash down those calendar days, because Knights Contract has gone gold for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. Gamers can expect the title in-hand on February 22.

The action game follows Heinrich, an immortal executioner whose list of victims once included Gretchen, a now resurrected witch. With Heinrich under her control, Gretchen can enact revenge against the evil Dr. Faust, whose bidding caused Gretchen her life by Heinrich’s hand. Together they’ll work to vanquish supernatural foes and restore order across 17th-century Europe.

The duo’s success depends upon the player’s ability to keep the mortal Gretchen alive while unleashing a flurry of combos as Heinrich. Think the Prince and Elika.
