Good question! When NIS America introduced A Witch’s Tale last summer their plan was to release it around Halloween… 2008. It’s 2009 and we haven’t seen anything new about Hit Maker’s Nintendo DS game.
A Witch’s Tale, however, has not been buried. An official site popped up in teaser mode. A full reveal is scheduled for next week, but the Japanese page in its skeletal form gives us a few details. The game will be known as A Witch’s Tale: The Seven Princesses and the Apprentice Witch in Japan. Also, it is on target to come out this year.
Since NIS America is lending a hand in the development process we should hear more about a domestic release in the future. Perhaps, we’ll see A Witch’s Tale in stores around Halloween 2009?
