Namco Bandai has announced that last week's unveiling of Knights Contract also pertains to us knaves here in North America, where the game will launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2011. It stars Heinrich, a medieval knight tasked with guarding the resurrected witch that he once killed and who now has him under her spelll. It sounds like a bum deal, to be honest.

The first trailer for the game portrayed Knights Contract as a Bayonetta-esque action-adventure game. Have a look at the screenshots in our gallery below, but know that they're quite gory -- not Killer Clowns from Outer Space gory, but like Kill Bill gory. You've been warned!
