The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition Hits PS4 March 1st
4 Author Replies

Last year our first 3D Action RPG, The Witch and the Hundred Knight, found its way onto PS3. For those of you who didn’t dip your toes in the swamp, you’ll now have a chance to get down and dirty because this witch is coming to PS4 in The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition on March 1!

If you didn’t spend any time in the swamp last year, this will be the perfect opportunity to get your toes sticky. For those of you who did a little mucking around already, this revival will come jam-packed with new features, shiny new graphics, and of course, the adorable little demon warrior whose name is bound to confuse you at least once, Hundred Knight, all for just $39.99. Now that, my fellow Prinny, is what I call a bargain for a PS4 game.

Oh, you’re curious about the new features I’m talking about? Well, let’s take a quick look!

If you were one of the Prinnies that hopped in and duked it out last year, you’ll be familiar with Metallia. In Revival Edition, you’ll finally be able to take control of the dastardly witch herself and raise Cain in Medea! She has some pretty awesome magic skills to do things like call down lightning, create a vortex to draw in enemies, or summon a massive sword to slice and dice her way through the Tower of Illusion.

Oh, that’s new too! The Tower of Illusion is a nifty way to challenge yourself and gain some sick loot! To enter it, you’ll have to sacrifice a weapon — the stronger the weapon, the more powerful your foes and the better the loot! It’s almost like you’re battling the weapon you sacrificed… Give up a little stick, and it’ll be easy-peasy, but give up a legendary Spear of Sins with some super strong catalyst upgrades, and you might find yourself a touch outclassed. But that’s the fun of a challenge, right?

Those catalysts I mentioned are new, too. In the Tower of Illusion, you’ll be able to gather catalysts like the Concentrated Mana Pearl, which you can combine in the new Alchemy system to boost the stats of your favorite equipment! You can only use a limited number of catalysts on each item though, so be sure to pick the right ones for your playstyle.

      I absolutely loved the original game, so much that I’ll probably pick this up too for the new features. Great to see it finally confirmed for western release, and at a good price point.

      I’m in Europe though, and this doesn’t seem to have been posted on the EU blog yet, but hopefully we’ll be getting it too? Either way, thanks for bringing it over to the west. (Also looking forward to getting Disgaea 5 here at the end of the week, the demo was super fun).

    • Already pre-ordered the Limited Edition! I’m so excited!

  • I saw the USK rating for this ages ago ;) Glad to have official confirmation!
