This one passed me by back in the day – if I’ve ever seen Tecmo Knight, I probably just assumed it was Golden Axe.
After all, the visuals are very similar, but while Golden Axe remains a warm memory for many, Tecmo Knight (1989) seems to have been forgotten. Which is why you might want to check it out on Nintendo Switch or Sony PlayStation 4 thanks to the Arcade Archives, which has faithfully reproduced the game while providing adjustable difficulty settings and arcade-authentic display options.
“TECMO KNIGHT” is an action game released by TECMO in 1989.
Take control of two demon messengers who are determined to face fire-breathing beasts, shaking ground, and demon-inhabited wastelands, and face the cursed battles that unfold furiously.
