NIS America will publish Nippon Ichi Software’s role-playing game The Witch and the Hundred Knight on PlayStation 3 on March 25, 2014 in North America. The game will launch in Europe a few days earlier on March 21.
I really wish we’d get more information on this game because I really dig Takehito Harada’s designs/art and the game looks like it’d be a lot of fun. I know it got delayed in Japan (which ultimately means its probably gonna take forever to get over here). Pre-orders on sites are saying March 18, 2014 for us but I really hope that is a placeholder date and not official.
Found it! Unedited, along with some other new art too! These are apparently art for card sleeves for that new NIS card game we kinda heard about, though was more us boggling at the huge group picture of swimsuits. (Which seems to be the shtick of this card game maker.)
The Witch and the Hundred Knights will come to North America and Europe in early 2014 as The Witch and the Hundred Knight (plural dropped), NIS America has announced.
According to the publisher, the title for the game was updated to better fit with the events of the story.
Find the game’s story set and feature set summarized below.
Fed up with being unable to travel beyond the borders of her swamp, the witch Metallia forges a contract with the legendary Hundred Knight to help her realize her ambition of spreading her swamp throughout all of Medea. As the Hundred Knight, your mission is to do whatever your master, the Swamp Witch, commands. Explore the world, destroy Pillars built to prevent her swamp from spreading, and wreak indiscriminate havoc. However, in the back of your inhuman mind, you begin to wonder… What prevents Metallia from leaving the swamp? Why do the other witches shun her, and how can she survive in a swamp that is notorious for how poisonous its fumes are? Is Metallia really a witch to respect, or is she one to fear?
Dark fantasy melee: Equip up to five different weapons at a time to build diverse, guard-breaking combos!
Be thee dexterous?: Use the Mystical Dodge feature to slow down time by avoiding an enemy’s attack at the last moment!
Enemy chowdown: Remain in Metallia’s service longer by consuming your foes when your Gigcalsare is low!
Magical metamorphosis: Switch between different “facets” to best clobber your enemies and explore this dark fantasy world.
Sinister is the name of the game: Enjoy the tale of one girl’s vengeance against the entire world—and “mercy” is not in her vocabulary!
Dual Audio galore: Players have the ability to switch between and enjoy both the English and Japanese audio tracks whilst adventuring!
