NIS America has finally confirmed the Western release date for their upcoming Playstation 3 exclusive action RPG, The Witch and the Hundred Knight. The game was set for release sometime this year, but has seen delays into next year. Anxious fans can expect to pick up the title on March 25th in America and March 21st in Europe.
Check out the full official story synopsis and features 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?
