The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition will come to PlayStation 4 in North America on March 1 and Europe on March 4 for $39.99, NIS America announced. A $49.99 limited edition will also be available on the NIS America Online Store.
The PlayStation 4 ‘revival’ of the 2013-launched PlayStation 3 RPG features updated graphics and new features, including the ability to control the witch Metallia, a new “Tower of Illusion” dungeon that requires a weapon sacrifice to enter (the stronger the weapon you sacrifice, the stronger the enemies within the tower), catalysts which you can combine to boost the stats of your equipment, and more.
NIS America has also opened a poll to vote for the official The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition box art on Facebook.
Fed up with being unable to travel beyond the borders of her swamp, the witch Metallia forges a contract with the legendary Hundred Knight to help her realize her ambition of spreading her swamp throughout all of Medea. As the Hundred Knight, your mission is to do whatever your master, the Swamp Witch, commands. Explore the world, destroy Pillars built to prevent her swamp from spreading, and wreak indiscriminate havoc. However, in the back of your inhuman mind, you begin to wonder… What prevents Metallia from leaving the swamp? Why do the other witches shun her, and how can she survive in a swamp that is notorious for how poisonous its fumes are? Is Metallia really a witch to respect, or is she one to fear?
- Shiny New Graphics — Using the power of the PlayStation 4, these swampy lands have been updated with new textures, lighting, and models.
- The Tower of Illusion — A brand new area will allow you to offer up your favorite weapons to battle foes whose strength is determined by the strength of the sacrificed weapon. This new area will enable you to acquire powerful new loot.
- Be the Witch! — Entering the Tower of Illusion and collecting Concentrated Mana will enable you to summon and play as Metallia for the first time ever!
- Alchemy — You might not be making gold, but you can now upgrade your weapons using catalysts from the Tower of Illusion to increase their ATK, DEF, and more!
