Knights Contract dated for February

Namco Bandai’s Knights Contract is all set for an early 2011 release, the company’s announced today. The medieval game of swordsmen and magic, developed by Game Republic, launches on February 22, 2011.

The game follows the story of Heinrich, an executioner immortalized by the resurrected witch, Gretchen, who he is now forced to work with in order to rid the land of the enemies that now lurk its surface. Just make sure Gretchen doesn’t die, as her “magical prowess and mortality is the key to the duo’s survival.”
