NIS America has announced today that The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 will be getting a western release, with the game set to come to North America and Europe in 2018 on PlayStation 4. The game will be getting both a physical and digital release, as well as a limited edition version that costs $79.99 and comes with the game, the official soundtrack, a hardcover art book, a two-disc original soundtrack, a Hundred Knight stress ball, a set of nine label pins, and a collector’s box.
As for what the game is all about, players once again control the Hundred Knight as he journeys through a witch-ravaged world where young girls are contracting illnesses and awakening as witches. This leads them to wreak havoc across the region of Kevala, and it’s up to Hundred Knight to restore order to the world. He won’t be alone for the journey, however, as two sisters named Amalie and Chelka who will be coming along for the ride.
Hundred Knight will once again be journeying through dungeons and landscapes that are overflowing with monsters he must bring down, all while leveling up and obtaining better equipment to take down the increasingly-difficult foes. The following is a breakdown of the game’s key features:
- Adapt to Your Surroundings – Switch between the Hundred Knight’s six Facets to turn the tide in battle! Gather Tochkas, the indispensable minions, to aid you in your exploration.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse – Use Ope Time to deal damage to enemies and replenish your GigaCalories! Trigger your Third Eye and unleash the full power of the Hundred Knight for a brief time. Leave enemies to tremble before your boosted speed, power, and skills!
- Temper Your Strength – Forge new weapons with items from the field at your base. Pass Witch Petitions; granting you access to new Tochkas and other benefits!
