Side-scrolling sword fighting game Nidhogg will launch on Steam on January 13th, 2014, developer Messhof has announced. The two-dimensional game was expected to come out last year, but was eventually delayed.

In Nidhogg, two pixelated challengers fight each other using swords. The trailer (embedded above) shows some of the game’s arenas, hand-to-hand combat and multiplayer, among many other features. According to Joystiq, Mac and Linux versions are expected to come out at some point in the future.
