Tidbits On Project D And The Witch And The Hundred Knights

By Spencer . September 11, 2012 . 10:40pm

laharlDengeki PlayStation has an update on Nippon Ichi Software’s mysterious Project D. The magazine has a special feature on the History on his Highness Laharl. Nippon Ichi hasn’t said much about Project D other than it’s a 20th Anniversary title.


The Witch and the Hundred Knights, an upcoming PlayStation 3 game from the Disgaea team, was shown in the magazine too with a new interface. The Witch and the Hundred Knights was originally slated for release in Japan in June, but Nippon Ichi delayed the game further and plan to release other titles like The God and Fate Revolution Paradox and Project D before it. NIS America announced it for North America, but haven’t set a release window for Witch yet.

    Sooo they actually didn’t have an update? That game has been in limbo for some time and that is a bad sign. It looks a bit like Grimgrimoire and I’ve a feeling it will sell just as bad as that game did.

    The witch’s design is awesome as hell though so I wish she was actually the focus and playable character of the game.

    •  Wait The Witch and the Hundred Knights looked like GrimGrimoire to you? 0-0 i’ve seen the screen shots…nothing alike unless u meant something else

      • Pretty sure he meant and I may be wrong since I’ve not heard of GrimGrimoire but maybe it was pushed back then released and sold poorly he thinks ‘Witch’ might too.

  • DesmaX

    Well, good luck for them. TWatHK is one of my most anticipated game for 2013, so I just hope it’s a good game (Especially since it’s 3D… NIS really don’t have any experience with 3D)

  • TheRealMalek

    New HUD ? my guess is that the delay was really needed so. Often when developpers are redoing the HUD from scratch it’s often that there are big changes behind. Maybe the game wasn’t fun ?

  • Mazdian

    Aww, new info on The Witch, but it’s bad news…

    Hopefully they focus on it a bit more in the future!

  • Somewhere in the Netherworld, Laharl’s gloating again.

    Because with this news, he knew that the role of being Main Character would be his again with the mysterious Project D.

  • Ravage27

    no pics of TWatHK? ;(

    I’m excited about Project D though :)

  • Herok♞

    As much as I love him I don’t want Laharl to be the main character this time, I want it to be the girl who won’t give up until she is the main character Asagi.

    • Anime10121

       While I wouldnt mind Laharl returning to the main character seat in the slightest, you’re right, Asagi would be an EXCELLENT choice for main character!  Asagi (one of her incarnations) deserves a main spot, especially since Makai Wars doesnt seem like it will ever come out!

  • Anime10121

    Cant wait to see Project D!  Hopefully its a new Disgaea game starring Laharl and crew again. While Mao and  Valvotorez (Valvy more so) were some awesome characters, they still lack the sheer insanity and insanely awesomness that Laharl possesses in spades!  Honestly I’ve always been more excited for project D anyway, as I’ve never cared for the whole Pikmin/Army Corps of Hell style send out little monsters to do your bidding style of game anyway.  The characters> look nice in TWatHK, but the gameplay concept never really grabbed me :(

    • Brimfyre

      I don’t know why Adell doesn’t get more respect.  His immaturity against women was annoying but he was way more a likable lead than Mao, the worst Disgaea lead.  Everyone seems to love Mao though. 

      Valvy is the best since Laharl I agree, but still not as good.

      • Anime10121

         Adell wasn’t a “bad” character per-say, its just he wasn’t nearly as great/memorable a character to me as Laharl, Etna, Flonne, Valvatorez, and Mao were. 

        • GibbRS

          I’d probably forget Adell even existed if not for his really useful DLC abilities in Disgaea 3 that allow him to leave enemies at 1 health, so other characters can finish them off.  I think he’s my highest level character in Disgaea 3 Vita.

          It’s kind of funny that NIS made such an incredible trio of main characters in their first game, that they haven’t been able to top it since.

      • Andres Pena

        the only thing i really find annoying about adell is that he keeps on denying that he is a demon when he is, i mean come on has he never looked underneath his hair and seen that he has pointy ears?!?!?

  • HassanJamal

    So its still on for 2013. Cool, as long as it isnt dead, im k with that. Take your time Nippon Ichi, your games are wicked awesome :)

  • SirRichard

    It’s been a while since they’ve talked about “Project D”, and frankly if they’re bringing Laharl back for it then I’ll all ears, I miss that gloating midget.

  • I really really want the God and Fate Revolution Paradox and hope it gets announced for localization as well =^_^=

  • GibbRS

    Something new with Laharl usually means Etna and Flonne as well (guilt by association).


  • Leonard Norwood Jr.

    Everyone here has a lot of suspicion and hopes about what Project D is. I’m up for the unveiling as well, as Nippon Ichi has done as much as possible to get fans of the East and West coming back for more. It would be a bit fun if Nippon Ichi will give us a clue or two for us to figure out.

    That’s just a thought, other than that I just can’t wait to find out what they’ve been working on which is a reason why there are producing more games to tide us over on what their big project is.

    I can’t wait for The Witch and the Hundred Knights. There’s something about the way Harada designed Metallica that is just so awesome. I’m definitely pre-ordering the Japanese limited edition as well as whatever we get here.

  • Bentan

    would love a collaboration between Arcsys and NIS to make a Disgaea HD 2d fighter!
