Metallica Will Have You Raiding Towns In The Witch And The Hundred Knights

By Sato . May 23, 2013 . 6:00pm

The Witch and the Hundred Knights features many strange characters such as the banged up butler Alrekino and the cursed half-canine girl, who all seem to take some sort of abuse from the prodigy witch, Metallica. Recently, Nippon Ichi introduced new characters and features, including one that will have you raiding villages.

 

The Hundred Knights will be exploring a world full of different races and magical creatures. Some of them will appear as enemies and others will appear as allies, who’ll be helping you out. One of the more popular races are the Mermen. The above images depicts a Merman character by the name of Nahabu, who sneaks up on the Hundred Knights.

 

The Wingedmen are another race, known for their harpy-like features. It seems as though Metallica has some sort of proposition for them.

 

Valentine

 

  

In a remotely far area from Metallica’s marsh, is the Valentine territory, where a witch by the name of Valentine lives. The place boasts the world’s best entertainment districts, not to mention that Valentine herself is quite the luxurious lady. She’s a powerful witch who uses the magic of flowers and has the title, “Great Duke of Flowers,” and is feared by many.

 

The imperial capital of the land is the Chocolata Floral Village, where flowers can be seen dancing during the night and day. Those who’ve had the pleasure to visit say that the experience was sweeter than chocolate.

 

 

This mysterious witch (pictured above) seems to have strong ties to Valentine. Similar to the floral witch, she is rather greedy, but seems to favor food over colors. She appears as a boss that confronts the Hundred Knights.

 

Korigon

 

This little creature is known as the detested demon child, Korigon. Apparently, Lord Valentine suppresses and rules the area, but Korigon is often seen happily working regardless of treatment.

 

There’s a feature in the game called “Witch Dominion,” where you’ll be breaking into homes of different villages and towns to bring it under control and seize family treasure. Of course, the villagers aren’t going to sit there and let you take their valuables or be under control by the unknown, so they’ll do everything they can to retaliate.

 

Defeating them will have their building under Metallica’s control, along with their valuables. However, they say that doing this too much may result in something rather unexpected.

 

The people living in villages all have their own thoughts and feelings. What you do as the Hundred Knights may have an impact on their feelings and actions.

 

The Behavior Panel (shown above) is used to gauge a person’s feelings. The three points are: Friendly, Fear and Hatred. Some conversations will only be established when the entire chart is green, for friendly.

 

004

In our earlier report, we got a peek at what looked like a change of appearance in the Hundred Knights. It has been revealed as the “Faucet” ability, which changes our little soldier’s appearance and abilities. In addition, you’ll be able to level up your Faucets and gain special abilities that go with them.

 

Here’s a look at three Faucet styles:

 

017

Wonder Knight: This is the default Faucet you’ll be starting out with. It relies on stable equipment and is well balanced.

 

014

Power Fortress: This Faucet is a small fortress-like Faucet that focuses on physical strength and defense, but it is weak against magic.

 

015 016

Marginal Gaze: Contrary to the Power Fortress, this one is strong with magic and specializes in handling specific types of weapons.

 

These three aren’t the only Faucets, as you’ll be able to unlock many more in the game with different abilities and features, which can be unlocked as you advance through the story.

 

018 019

The Witch and the Hundred Knights is slated to be released on July 25th in Japan in regular and limited editions, for PlayStation 3.

    Red Witch: Same character? Same character.

  • SirRichard

    So that’s the morality system thing they mentioned ages ago for this game. It’s more interesting than most, potentially, with the distinction between hatred and fear letting you get all Machiavelli about things if you want.

    Still looking forward to this, and I hope they manage to keep Metallica’s name, just because saying “I am magical knight spirit that serves Metallica” is a wonderful line.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    It’s not the “Metallica” I expected. So watch the trailer with this music instead: http://youtu.be/IZ7Aif5aXlQ

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      The Metallica I was thinking of was from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure… although thinking about it just makes me a little angry because of what happened…

      • Juan Andrés Valencia

        We’ve been fooled man. And that’s not cool.

  • leadintea

    I’m surprised by how many features this game has. I thought it was going to be an anime version of Dark Souls way back when it was first shown, but I’m really thinking this game can be quite unique in its own way.

    • MrTyrant

      It feels like an RTS kind of what Warcraft III was but being more action based instead being an strategy game. I like it, it looks very unique and I hope that can be succesful.

      Also DAT Pikmin vibe.

  • DarthSithZero

    loI thought they were talking a about Metallica( the metal band) will add songs to the game

    • Crazy_O

      It’s actually Metalica or Metarica I think. I didn’t see a ッ before リ D:

      • Sato

        Actually, it’s the same. The band is spelled as メタリカ in Japanese, too. The ッ is usually only applied when there’s a short pause :P

        • Crazy_O

          Isn’t the pause “ー” ?

          • Sato

            Nah, the ー elongates the ending vowel of the previous letter :)

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    This is shaping up to what I think will be a really great title. The gameplay intrigues me. Can’t wait to play it!

  • riceisnice

    Well what if you were a town and some wisp thing in armor decided to raid you. How would you feel! >:C

  • LDM

    So, where ever village Metallica roams, she can be some kind of monster unforgiven by the villagers.

    • Guest

      I see what you did there.

  • xzeldax3

    Inb4 Metallica band members take legal action and settle for anime-stylized counterparts of themselves to be incorporated into the game.

    • X_Bacon

      And I’d be okay with that

    • Koulamatata

      There’s nothing I want more than to see James and Kirk in an anime game.
      It’d be like their Simpsons cameo, but funnier.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I want this so much.

  • Tincho D

    Master of Boners

    • anarchy_panty

          Well, at least we know she doesn’t spit.

  • ShadowDivz

    I don’t know about you guys but… I think Metallica is really hot.

    Especially in that first pic where she has this mischievous smile on her face. I NEED WALLPAPERS OF HER!!!!

  • personablaze

    I think the mysterious witch is probably

    Valentine’s mom or rival (or both)

    I’m hype for this fho sho ^^

    • JustThisOne

      I’m thinking she’s probably Valentine herself! :3 Just another form, that she tries to hide or something.

      Bahaha, just guesses though.

      • Follower_of_Pram

        That’s where my line of though went. She looks too similar to Valentine and being a known chocolate (sweets) place…

  • http://www.facebook.com/Sardorim Richard Shiflett

    We all know she’ll even appear in a Disgaea game!

    • Testsubject909

      Her or the little knight.

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    This game is going to be great, and loving all the characters =^_^=
