Dengeki PlayStation this week features an interview with Nippon Ichi Software president Sohei Niikawa and The Witch and the Hundred Knight Revival director Tomoya Asano, who discuss the lack of a PS Vita version, the game’s new elements, and the newly confirmed sequel.
Get the quotes below.
Regarding The Witch and the Hundred Knight Revival Not Being on PS Vita
Niikawa: “Actually, we tested it with Vita and PS4. For Vita, it became clear that there was a considerable amount of labor required, resulting in processing slowdowns and other such problems. But it went well on PS4, so we decided on that.”
New Controls and Elements
Asano: “Players can now control Metallia. And because the button layout has changed, we’re rethinking the control environment. There’s also touchpad support. Also, in the previous game, you could only equip a one-pattern weapon, but now there are three slots.”
Regarding The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2
Niikawa: “Specifics have not been decided, but since Metallia’s story is fully completed, we’re thinking about a different story. As for Revival, I want to incorporate fan requests and feedback as much as possible.”
Is The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 for PlayStation 4?
Niikawa: “Revival is for PlayStation 4, so we are planning to release 2 in that manner, as well.”
The Witch and the Hundred Knight Revival is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan on September 2.
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
