Protect Me Knight sequel coming to Japanese 3DS eShop in September


Japanese indie studio Ancient revealed that a sequel to its retro-styled multiplayer party game Protect Me Knight will hit the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Japan in September.

Co-founded by noted game music composer Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage, ActRaiser), Ancient's previous credits include the 1991 Sega Game Gear version of Sonic the Hedgehog. The studio launched Protect Me Knight for the Xbox Live Indie Games service in 2010, offering a blend of multiplayer-focused action, tower defense, and character-building RPG.

The 3DS sequel, Minna de Mamotte Knight, introduces a pair of new playable characters, and translated details via NeoGAF indicate that the game will feature "about ten times" as much content as its XBLIG predecessor. Ancient hopes to release Minna de Mamotte Knight overseas, but a localized version has not yet been announced.
