More details of Nippon Ichi's upcoming RPG have been unveiled.
Last year, Nippon Ichi showed off glimpses of iyd latest project, called The Witch and the Hundred Cavalrymen (or Majo to Hyakkihei), which is its first foray into action role-playing game territory. The company recently announced that the game will be out on June 28 in Japan this year, according to a recent article in Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation.
The recent article also revealed further details about the game. Players can select up to 10 different weapon types for their playable undead cavalryman. Gamers can also take a break from the main dungeon-crawling action by heading down to a gambling area where they can play an assortment of minigames to earn in-game currency or new equipment.
The Witch and the Hundred Cavalrymen is about a witch named Metallica who plans to overthrow her forest witch rival by using a sole undead cavalryman that can be accompanied by 99 other soldiers as temporary helpers. Check out GameSpot's gamespace for more details of the action RPG exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
A witch named Metallica. Then I'm expecting some of the helpers for your character in the game to be the Master of Puppets, the Phantom Lord, the Harvester of Sorrow, the Creeping Death, the Unforgiven, King Nothing, Prince Charming, St. Anger, Cyanide, and the most powerful helpers of all the Four Horsemen name James, Lars, Kirk, and Robert. :P
You had me @ "dungeon-crawling action" I'm very pleased to see the revival of the console action-rpg (Sacred 2, Torchlight, Dungeon Siege III, Kingdoms of Amalur, LoTR WITN, etc). Keep making more quality games like this and we will continue to buy them,
