Even though the company is currently embroiled in the proletariat uprising from their niche market of disgruntled fans over localization practices, NIS America decided to announce that they will be releasing The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 in North America and Europe on the PS4 at some point in 2018.
Not only will the base game be available for consumers, but there will also be a limited edition made available as well, which will come with a base copy of the game, a special collector’s box, a hardcover art book, a two-disc pack containing the original soundtrack, nine metal palpel pins, and a Hundred Knight stress ball.
To commemorate the announcement of the game heading West, NIS released an announcement trailer that you can check out below.
You play as the eponymous Knight having to carry out the bidding of two feisty females, one being Amalie, the agent of an anti-witch organization, and Chelka the awakened witch and the younger sister of Amalie.
The Japanese RPG is an action-oriented affair, with players having to fight, hack, and slash their way through various challenges, while also helping save Amalie and Milm (the latter of whom became the awakened witch Chelka) from fiends, demons, monsters and evil doers.
As mentioned at the top of the article, NIS America is currently being taken to task by fans of Nihon Falcom for poorly handling the localization of various games, including the most recent outing of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana. Instead of trying to squeeze a response from NIS, gamers decided to jump right over their heads and send letters (written in Japanese) directly to Nihon Falcom about the issues plaguing the localization process affecting the games.
Whether or not fans will continue to kick up a fuss for equally niche titles such as The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 remains to be seen, but overall you can look for the sequel to arrive in the West starting next year for PS4.
