With the recent release of Disagea 5 under their belt, Nippon Ichi Software has announced that The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition will be coming to the Playstation 4 on March 1st for $39.99. This will be taking the action RPG for the PlayStation 3 from 2013/2014 (depending on your region) and will not only have enhanced graphics, but will include new features for the revival edition as well. The game plays out similar to isometric action RPGs of the past, as the character is able to cycle between weapons to create combos and defeat enemies will getting through dungeons and attempting to get weaponry. There are some features that the original game had such as being able to attack NPC villages to gain items, but causing karma effects on the players where other NPCs may attack him on site. An announcement trailer can be seen here:
The new features included this time around involve the ability to take control of the character Metallia. She’s been a favorite for being an “awesomely dark” character who commits a lot of vile acts in her role as a lead anti-hero. She apparently has some dastardly magic under belt with the ability to create vortexes to draw in enemies, or summon massive swords to chop up enemies. And who doesn’t love summoning magic swords? While the original game didn’t get the greatest of reviews associated with it with scoring a 53 on Metacritic, hopefully the game can address some of the gameplay issues in this new edition while keeping the dark narrative that the original game had in tack. Many of the low reviews site its offensive story line, so for those who are willing to take a peak into the dark world Nippon Ichi has created, there may be something of substance here.
In addition, there’s the new Tower of Illusion, which allows the player to sacrifice a weapon to get foes as powerful as the weapon you’ve sacrificed. But of course, if you’re able to beat those foes, you’ll get even better rewards as a rewards. There’s also now a catalyst system, which you can gather catalysts to boost equipment on a limited basis. In a different kind of promotion, Nippon Ichi is allowing fans to vote on the game’s cover art over at their Facebook page.
