4Gamer has shared a whopping 10-minute gameplay video of Nippon Ichi Software’s upcoming RPG, The Witch and the Hundred Knights. For a company that usually makes strategy-RPGs, The Witch and the Hundred Knights is one of NIS’s most ambitious games yet, boasting wide 3D environments and a large variety of gameplay elements.
As an undead warrior named the Hundred Knights, you must serve the Marsh Witch Metallica by travelling across the world, creating marshes. You can equip five different weapons at once to create deadly combos and outwit your foes by slowing down time and summoning mini-soldiers called Tochkas.
In addition, you can raid people’s houses and eat enemies. Accompanying the game are character designs by Takehito Harada and music by Tenpei Sato from the Disgaea series.
The Witch and the Hundred Knights will be released in Japan on July 25. An English version has been confirmed by NIS America, but has not been dated yet.
