While our review for Mugen Souls is right around the corner and we’re going to have quite a focus on NISA soon, I wanted to mention an upcoming title of theirs. The Witch and the Hundred Knights is a Nippon Ichi Software developed game with more wonderful artwork by Takehito Harada!
The game focuses on a battle between two witches. You’ll be playing as one of the one hundred knights that the Marsh Witch Metallica has summoned to fight her rival, the Forest Witch. Whether the Marsh Witches name survives translation is yet to be seen however. From what I gather Hundred Knights seems to be an action RPG and you’ll be able to summon other knights to assist you for a short time. You’ll still be leveling up and collecting loot.
Hundred Knights game world is an open explorable land viewed from a top down perspective. As you progress you’ll be able to use magic to clear away the darkness surrounding areas and expand places you can visit. The game is coming to North America in 2013 for the PS3.
