The game was released on December 11th, 2012 for {{PlayStation Network}} and XboxLiveArcade the day after. Has nothing to do with ''Black Knight'' staring Martin Lawrence. If you're looking for the trope of a knight in black armor, see BlackKnight.

From [[Creator/{{Suda51}} the mind]] that brought us ''VideoGame/SineMora'' and ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw'' comes ''Black Knight Sword'', a whimsically [[DarkerAndEdgier dark]] and [[WidgetSeries strange]] throwback to 8-bit and 16-bit 2D action platformers for UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 3}} and UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}}.

Added DiffLines:

* HarderThanHard: The dreaded Arcade Mode strips you of the ability to save your game and adds a strict time limit to each level, while the difficulty is set on Hard. Which means you have to play through the whole game [[ThisIsGonnaSuck in one sitting]].

Added DiffLines:

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: Stage 2 has this.


Added DiffLines:

* BrutalBonusLevel: Some of the completely optional missions in Challenge Mode are quite difficult.
* BulletHell: The White Princess loves to do this in her third phase, and does so a lot faster on higher difficulties.


Added DiffLines:

* NintendoHard: With the game being a throwback to 8- and 16-bit action platformers, this comes naturally. Even freakin' Easy Mode has its fair share of challenges.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfImposedChallenge: One trophy/achievement requires a MinimalistRun. Easy Mode is highly recommended.


Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedShmupLevel: Occurs at the very end of Stage 3.

* BookEnds: The game begins and ends the same way if you go through the credits after the True Ending: [[spoiler:the player character hanging himself in a lonely motel room.]]
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler:The White Princess is Black Hellebore's sister. The hate they felt for each other was so strong that it defied death itself and annoyed ''God'' enough that he sealed them in a storybook, which is the setting of the game.]]
