Publisher Kwalee has announced that Die by the Blade, a cyberpunk-themed samurai fighting game, launches for PC and consoles in 2022.
Developed by Grindstone and Triple Hill Interactive, Die by Blade takes inspiration from Bushido Blade, Way of the Samurai and Dark Souls. Previously been funded via a Kickstarter campaign last October, Kwalee has now secured publishing rights.

Promising a "unique fusion of fast-paced, sword fighting action," Die by the Blade takes a different approach to traditional fighting games. Focusing instead on one-hit kills, that promises "diverse weapon playstyles" alongside online multiplayer.
Outlining what to expect via a PlayStation Blog entry, Triple Hill Interactive's Chief Designer, Peter Adamondy, called development a "rollercoaster ride over the past year" and wanted to provide an update.
