Save An 8-bit Witch From Being Turned To Stone By An 8-bit Medusa


Circle Entertainment revealed one of their new Nintendo eShop games for 3DS this week—Witch & Hero, an 8-bit-style action game. You play as a hero, who is accompanied by a witch, and together they take on Medusa.


Unfortunately, Medusa turns the witch to stone, so it’s up to the hero to defeat monsters and collect their blood in order to revive her for a limited time. While the witch is active, her magic is capable of dishing out a load of damage, so that’s part of the incentive for keeping her from being a statue.


Witch & Hero doesn’t have a release date yet.
