It was announced last night that forthcoming title ‘Honourbound‘ developed by Irish Indie, Digital Furnace and published by Heads Up Games (those would be the publishers behind titles like Limbo and Dustforce) has been renamed. The side scrolling action adventure that caught my eye a few weeks ago for it’s sharp animations and detailed artwork has been renamed; OniKira: Demon Killer.
“Onikira: Demon Killer is a 2D side scrolling beat ‘em up set in a fantasy feudal Japan where the player takes on the role of a samurai fighting to prevent the forces of the Japanese underworld from breaking through into the world of the living.”
Personally I like the new name, it seems to fit the tone of the game a lot more! ‘You can stay up to date with the game here!
