The Witch and the Hundred Knight to Release in 2014

The Witch and the Hundred Knight

NIS America announced that The Witch and the Hundred Knight will release in early 2014 for the PlayStation 3.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight was originally revealed in 2012 and scheduled for an early 2013 release in America.  In Japan the game was planned for a Summer 2012 release but was delayed, finally releasing on July 25. It is also worth noting that the game was originally titled “The Witch and the Hundred Knights” but was updated to better align itself with the events of the story.

In The Witch and the Hundred Knight, players take on the role of the legendary Hundred Knight. The Hundred Knight has entered into a contract with Metallia, a witch who is tired of not being able to travel outside of her swamp. As Metallia’s servant, the Hundred Knight will help spread the swamp throughout the world of Medea. Along the way players will discover why the other witches of Medea have shunned Metallia and other secrets behind her swampy kingdom.

Nippon Ichi Software, best known for the Tactical RPG Disgaea series, is developing the game. The Witch and the Hundred Knight is somewhat of a departure from the company’s previous titles. Unlike the Disgaea games, The Witch and the Hundred Knight focuses on 3D graphics, making it an ambitious undertaking for developer.

Players can expect many gameplay mechanics when the game releases. Up to five different weapons can be equipped at a time; doing so will help build combos to break the guard of enemies. By perfectly timing a dodge from an enemy attack, players will activate a Mystical Dodge that can slow down time. Eating enemies will ensure that players will also be active in battle for much longer by replenishing Metallia’s Gigcals. The game also features a top down perspective with many quests to complete.

While The Witch and the Hundred Knight is some time away, Nippon Ichi Software fans still have a few more original titles on the horizon to look forward to. Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness will release in October and The Guided Fate Paradox in November.
