For a while now, people have been wondering Nippon Ichi Software’s The Witch and the Hundred Knights still existed. Fortunately it still did, and finally the game is done! We have news of a release date in Japan.

In this week’s issue of Japan’s Dangeki Playstation magazine, The Witch and the Hundred Knights is said to release at July 25th for the Playstation 3. There will be a regular edition and special edition, with the regular edition running at 7,140 yen, and the limited edition copies at 10,290 yen.

Another source writes that an “international version” for The Witch and the Hundred Knights “has been announced”, but says there are no clear western dates yet. According to a past interview with NIS President Sohei Nikawa, however: he was dead set in wanting to see Zillions of Enemy X — a trading card game —  released in the States, making a western release for The Witch and the Hundred Knights less of a far cry. Though all expectations still demand caution.

The Witch and the Hundred Knights is an action-RPG that puts players in the role as a knight who can turn into an army of cavalrymen to fight monsters and equip different armors. The game is developed by the same team responsible for bringing the Prinny platformers like Can I Really Be the Hero? and Dawn of Operation Panites Dood!

The game sounds almost like an interesting twist from mechanics seen in Disgaea, Phantom Brave, or Makai Kingdom, where the game looks more action than strategy. Definitely expect more details from us when there’s more to come.

    I remember seeing gameplay footage of this a WHILE back. Looks good. I wonder why they kept silent about it for so long.
    Oh well, good to hear that it hasn’t been abandoned.

  • I heard they were having trouble making this game due to lack of experience with action games.
