Trivia

  • Steve Ritchie returns to do the voice of the Black Knight, in Black Knight 2000.
  • Black Knight 2000 is the sequel to the popular Black Knight from Williams (1980).
  • There is an interesting story about the Black Knight 2000 launch party. Williams had a big-gala event with fancy attire, where the game was to be shown for the first time. Management had a fully decked-out knight on horseback ready to introduce the game. What ended up was a disaster, as the horse defecated on the stage upon the presentation!
