Thirty years after it first came out, Square Enix today announced a new version of the classic scrolling game KING’S KNIGHT. The updated game KING’S KNIGHT – WRATH OF THE DARK DRAGON is available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad, and on Google Play for Android.
More information on the game as well as screens are below courtesy of their press release.
KING’S KNIGHT –WRATH OF THE DARK DRAGON– NOW AVAILABLE
KING’S KNIGHT –Wrath of the Dark Dragon– is the vertical scrolling shooter game that appears throughout the story of FINAL FANTASY XV. The title is based on KING’S KNIGHT, which was initially developed by SQUARE for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986 by Hironobu Sakaguchi and Nobuo Uematsu.
This modern version features a brand-new story and world where players must defeat enemies while simultaneously destroying obstacles in their path. The game includes more than 100 new quests, dozens of new obstacles, enemies and traps, job elements and co-op multiplayer support for up to four players. Fans and a new generation of players will be challenged by a level of difficulty that remains true to the original game.
Players can also join Noctis and others characters from FINAL FANTASY XV to vanquish giant enemy bosses by sharing to sites like Facebook and Twitter to reduce their HP in the FINAL FANTASY XV x KINGS KNIGHT Giant Boss social campaign. Running through September 29, fans can defeat as many bosses as possible to earn greater in-game rewards.

The title is now available as a free download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android. More information can be found on Facebook (facebook.com/kingsknightwrath) and Twitter (twitter.com/kingsknight_en).
