Blending strategic gameplay with a brutal, calculated touch, each weapon in Die by the Blade defines the moveset of the diverse roster of customisable characters. From the fine precision swing of the Katana, the fast, tactile maneuverability of the Wakizashi, to the heavy, brutal rhythm of the Nodachi, each weapon offers diverse playstyles in tense 1v1 battles across online and single player modes. 

Bringing together a team studded with gaming veterans, including the co-founder of Codemasters, developer of NBA Jam and other senior executives, Kwalee’s ambitions in the PC & Console space has led to the establishment of a veteran department experienced in Premium Indie (III) and AAA chart-topping hits, with Die by the Blade set to be an exciting addition to Kwalee’s forthcoming catalogue of PC & Console games. 

“Triple Hill Interactive are a fantastic development team and, as a huge fan of Bushido Blade back in the day, I could not be happier that Kwalee is partnering with them to bring the savage, one-hit-kill game Die by the Blade to PC & Console gamers next year.” highlighted Max Everingham, Head of PC & Console Publishing at Kwalee. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Kwalee as global publisher for Die by the Blade”, commented Peter Nagy, founder and CEO of Grindstone. “It’s exciting to work with a partner who shares our vision and excitement for the game and with their publishing expertise we look forward to a worldwide multi-platform launch in 2022” 

With 7 playable characters, all with their own unique backstories, alongside a wide range of customisation options, players have the chance to tailor their cosmetic style before testing their mettle across game modes including tournaments, ranked online modes and more (to be revealed soon!)

Having gone from strength to strength as a publisher with 700,000,000 downloads of hit mobile games such as Draw It, Shootout 3D and Object Hunt, Kwalee is ecstatic to be working with the hugely talented Grindstone and Triple Hill Interactive teams, with much more news on the game to be arriving soon!
