The Witch And The Hundred Knight Set For March And NISA Has A Big Limited Edition

By Spencer . December 10, 2013 . 6:50pm

witch100_big_LEMetallia is leaving her swamp in March because NIS America plans on releasing her PlayStation 3 game then. You actually don’t play as Metallia in The Witch and the Hundred Knight. You’re Hundred Knight, a cute little fellow with a bottomless pit for a stomach, who destroys Pillars to expand Metallia’s swamp land.

 

The Witch and the Hundred Knight was developed in-house by Nippon Ichi Software and has characters created by Takehito Harada.

 

NIS America has a limited edition bundle which includes:

The Witch and the Hundred Knight for PlayStation 3 (with reversible cover art)
- a hardcover art book
- the soundtrack on two CDs
-  a Metallia petit nendoroid
- a limited edition box.

 

This package will cost $74.99 on NIS America’s online shop. Regular copies go for $49.99.

 

The Witch and the Hundred Knight is slated for release on March 25 in North America and March 21 in Europe.

    Now i don’t know what to do with my $20 version I can get on Amazon…

    • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

      This is basically how I feel, but I’m probably just gonna keep my $20 version. I’m getting the limited edition of Danganronpa instead, anyway.

    • Cruxis

      $20? How?

      • powerlessbump

        It was dropped to $20 back in October or something.

        • Cruxis

          Oh wow, so there’s no way to get that deal now?

    • WyattEpp

      Same here! I didn’t see any mention of a limited edition, so I pre-ordered on Amazon. Now I’m not sure what to do…

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 禍津水木

    AWesome, was actually just on their site looking for info on this

  • DesmaX

    Sweet, March is fine by me! Day 1 for me…

    Wait, the South Park game is getting released in March too, isn’t it? Well, I can push that one a little further, I guess

  • Saintdante

    Nice… with the Danganronpa limited edition and now this a lot of my money seems to be going to NISA beginning of next year.

    • http://danierc-polloconpapas.tumblr.com/ Eduardo Rocha

      Wait, what Danganronpa Limited Edition?

      • Ladius

        This: http://store.nisamerica.com/Games/Danganronpa-Trigger-Happy-Havoc-Premium-Edition

        It’s a NISA Store exclusive, and it’s only 49$.

        • http://www.ihasnowebsitez.com Satonaka CP-Four

          Not enough swag for my tastes but still a great LE nonetheless. My neph’s grabbin’ that, while i’m grabbin this one, win-win ^ ^

        • http://danierc-polloconpapas.tumblr.com/ Eduardo Rocha

          Oh, that explains why I’ve never heard of it.Thanks c:

  • TheExile285

    Very nice LE

  • deadMastershiro

    METALICA!!!

  • Pythia Brixham

    Why is EVERY game I want coming out in February and March?!

  • zazamos

    It’s not a bad Collector’s Edition, but I’m being very freaking cautious. The Disgaea 4 collection also promised a nendopetite at the time of preorder, but then they swapped it to something else that was turd-ugly.

    I’ve been burned once but I’m not letting that happen to me again. Buyer beware.

    • Chaos89

      I also ordered the D4 collectors and had that same issue. However I ordered the Disgaea:D2 collectors as well. This time we got the advertised figures. So I wouldn’t really worry about that too much.

      • xXDGFXx

        We’ve been getting those nenderoid petite figures ever since after mugen souls localization.

  • Pdugna

    it’s about this and other games but also about this one….love the $50 price of games now new…it’s getting lower and lower.

  • zferolie

    Already Preordered :D

  • Roberto

    my wallet

  • http://denpanosekai.blogspot.com denpanosekai

    Normally I’d give NISA a blank check (haven’t skipped an LE in years, even garbage like Time & Eternity, ugh) but I’m still not sure how I feel about this game. Gameplay looks like such a mess. I need to lookup more videos but I’m really not sure about this one.

    • DesmaX

      Well, every NIS game look like a mess, to be fair.

      The problem is that this is action based. But, trust me, just look at some gameplay videos. It plays better than it looks

    • http://www.unit03.net blackraen

      It really is a great game. Highly recommended. The only mark against it really is the graphics, but it’s NIS’s first generation of their in-house 3D engine. It works well enough and really isn’t that bad when you’re playing. It just doesn’t pretty up well in screenshots.

      But really, excellent game, can’t recommend it enough.

  • Dingus

    Christ, NIS is really stepping up its game, this is one helluva deal.

  • Bur


    Goddamnit. *opens wallet*

    • http://www.ihasnowebsitez.com Satonaka CP-Four

      mine is empty as well, oh well, more hours at work for more sweets on my shelves ^ ^

  • Varnes

    “Throws money at NISA” GIVE IT TO ME!

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

    Well damn NISA. It’s not like I wanted to keep my money or anything lol

    This is a beautiful Limited Edition. Sold.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    These guys truly are picking up on the fact there is a place for true special editions and folks will pay for them. This does beat the bar Guided Fate Paradox set — now I’m sad we got no Lilliel nendroid. :(

  • TheExile285

    Such a nice LE

  • 하세요

    Not much interest in the game myself, but that’s certainly one LE only a fool (or someone with a reasonable excuse for not having the extra money) would turn down that wants this game.

  • Slickyslacker

    Grabby hands.

  • Ladius

    Preordered, I’m eager to see Team Prinny’s new effort :)

    NIS is surely on a roll, while I didn’t particularly like Disgaea D2 (it was a competent and funny game in its own right, but a bit of a letdown as a sequel to Disgaea) I absolutely loved The Guided Fate Paradox and can’t wait to sink lots of hours into The Witch and the Hundred Knights and Apollosof’s Battle Princess of Arcadia (provided they localize it, but I don’t see why they shouldn’t).

  • chroma816

    Interested. Verrryyy interested.

  • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

    I don’t know if I really want the game, but I do want to see the other witches and I am a sucker for sexy LEs.

    • http://www.ihasnowebsitez.com Satonaka CP-Four

      Same, a shame KT confirmed Escha/Logy already but so far no as-of-yet CE/LE… I’m a sucker for these kinds of specials myself and im already on the wagon for this special edition, game good or not.

  • TheRealMalek

    Damn i would kill for an european nisa(e ?) store that would let me preorder this LE without being overcharged with :

    - Heavy Import Taxes
    - Heavy shipping rates

    • Istillduno

      Huh, every time I’ve ordered from NISA the parcel has been labeled at a bit under £20 to avoid import bullshit, have they stopped doing that since Disgaea D2 dropped or something?

  • Callonia

    But I wanna play as Metallica!

    • pimpalicious

      She’s a DLC character in Disgaea D2. :P

      • Callonia

        Now I have sufficient reason to start playing Disgaea at last. I skipped everything but not Disgaea D2 it looks like.

  • Kai2591

    dad nendo

  • Zetsuei380

    leave it to nisa for bringing us another sweet limited edition

  • pimpalicious

    Nice LE, at least I’ll have some nice stuff if I don’t like the game. The graphics look really bland I noticed, there are PS2 games that look better(going by screenshots here, maybe it looks better in motion). Nice character portraits though.

    • http://www.unit03.net blackraen

      This game uses NIS’s own in-house developed 3D engine. They’ve never done anything like it before so it’s fresh and kind of shows their inexperience.

      That said, the game is fantastic and while the game graphics aren’t best-in-class, they work well. This game embodies the top-down adventure action game genre so well it really deserves awards.

      My favorite game of 2013. Despite already having the JP version (platinumed at that), I’m getting this LE. The game is too fun.

      • Shady Shariest

        It’s lovely to hear about the new 3d engine :3
        Awesome to see that they are making new things like this :3

      • pimpalicious

        I haven’t been disappointed in a NiS game yet so I think I’ll like it. I should check out some videos though cause I really don’t know much about this game. I know it’s a dungeon crawler but not sure if it’s like Legasista, ZHP, or completely different from both.

  • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

    Why did they feel the need to change her name? Metallia sounds stupid.

    • Arcana Wiz

      cause metallica is a band name, and they could be sued for it? copyrights…

      • Shady Shariest

        Metallica sues everyone and everything using their name :P

      • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

        It’s the Latin word for metallic, I think not.

  • Arcana Wiz

    ….. this looks stunning :O

  • Charmchar

    I’ve never bought a limited Edition anything, but this is really tempting and for that price; i have to get it now. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

  • Kuro Kairi

    I’m torn between this for the nendo and blazblue for the rachel nendo…
    It depends on which nendo is better
    But my wallet is torn on not getting any of this T.T

  • ivanchu77

    It´s been a looooooong time waiting with this title, without a doubt the game i´m having more Hype next year, day 1 for sure

  • shadowind

    Yayyyyyyy, another NISA game that’s coming out in Europe before NA although I’ve never understood why they never bring out their LE’s over here…

  • Alexander Aubert

    i officialy hate march

  • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

    Damn… This and Dangran LE I assume are only going to be available through their site… Do you know what shipment provider do they use? Not really wanted to pay import duty :/

  • Hound

    Limited Edition, huh?
    … Includes a NENDROID!? Sold!

    I will name her Metallica, and she’ll look upset while I play the game. I’ll have to remove her hat. Maybe she can hold it somehow..

  • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

    Soundtracks are hit or miss. Does anyone know if the music is good in this game?

    • DesmaX

      http://youtu.be/VIH19UXCPeU

      Pretty good, I’d say

      • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

        Ehhh…it’s a little too Tim Burton for me. I can see the appeal, and it definitely fits the mood of the game. However, it’s not for me. I’ll just get the regular version.

        EDIT: Oh, and thanks for the upload!

        • DesmaX

          Well, different strokes for different folks

          I think it fits the game quite nicely (And I love Tenpei Sato work too, so that helps it for me)

          EDIT: The standard version should come with the full soundtrack too

  • Luis Camargo

    Why EVERYTHIMG is launching on february and march ?

    I want this, but my wallet is already too much beaten.

  • mockturtle

    I thought her name was Metallica? Did they change it or have I been reading it wrong all these months?

    Pre-ordered it already, though.

    • KingGunblader

      It’s likely they changed it. Even if Metallica didn’t care, I’m sure their label did.

    • pimpalicious

      It was changed, of course to avoid issues with Metallica and their label.

  • KingGunblader

    Sorry, but I’m gonna have to file this one under “later.” There’s way too much happening in February – March as it is.

  • FlyingPony

    March.. please come sooner..

  • Freakmasta

    Do I get it just for the nendoroid?

  • Raltrios

    Six days after my birthday? I know what I’m getting for myself! I plan to get a PS3 as a Christmas present for myself, because I know none of my family want to spend that much on one person for a gift. I’ll get this for myself too, as they probably wouldn’t get me the limited edition no matter how much I emphasize that it HAS to be that version.
    But that’s fine. I prefer to buy things myself anyway, as I don’t like the idea of people wasting money on me. Bad taste in my mouth.

  • Alister Izumi

    75 bucks for a nice LE is a automatic buy from me

  • Freud_Hater

    They just keep piling up the stuff I have to buy now, aren’t they…

  • http://crono-trigger.tumblr.com/ SilverCrono

    First LR:FFXIII and now this. These online-only swag exclusives make it really hard to be someone who doesn’t have an accessible card… :(

  • KuroNathan

    Hrm, I was looking at the gameplay trailers and the game looked a bit… boring. NIS’s other action game didn’t pan out very well so I don’t know if I should get this.

  • Nexus

    I was already interested in buying the LE just for the art book alone (I absolutely LOVE the designs) but after I saw that it would also include a petit figure of Metallia, I pretty much smashed in my credit card info on check-out.

  • artemisthemp

    Looking forward to putting this CE in my collection

  • Freud_Hater

    Where can I buy this, exactly? It seems to not be available at my GameStop… And my just being hasty or will I have to buy it from NISA’s store, or something? ‘_’
