The Witch and the Hundred Knights is one of Nippon Ichi Software’s most ambitious games yet. Not only is every character rendered in 3D, but the game is filled with large 3D environments as well.
The world that the story takes place in is called Midea, and as Hundred Knights, you’ll explore a variety of areas. Take a look at some of them below:
The area where the dark hero Metallica resides and where Hundred Knights’ adventure begins. Noxious miasma permeates through the region, preventing life from flourishing.
A thick forest neighboring Metallica’s swamp. The forest is governed by the Forest Witch and boasts a variety of plants and supposedly giant caterpillars.
A part of Valentine’s territory including a human village. Ridden with hills and nature, this area lies between Niblhenne and Valentine’s home.
Chocolata Flower Town
The town operated by the Flower Archduke Valentine. The district is lined with “pleasure quarters” where residents offer passionate greetings.
A vast region that runs along a long road and is the home of the cotton firefly. Many people visit this area to see the glowing insects at night. Mountains and forests cover the landscape, the northern parts of which are covered in snow.
An ancient valley where legends say that witches used to war against strange creatures. The deepest region is home to the rare Wing People.
A desert region battered by merciless sunlight. Beneath the sand lie giant Sand Eaters that prey upon unwary travelers.
Sicite Battleground Ruins
A wide region that was once the setting of a devastating war. Rumors say that it is filled with spirits of dead soldiers.
The Witch and the Hundred Knights will be released in Japan on July 25. NIS America is localizing it for the West, but have not announced a date yet.
