The Witch & The Hundred Cavalrymen


Recommended Posts



Some early super unverified reports from Dengeki PlayStation have revealed a new Nippon Ichi game for PlayStation 3. Titled Majo to Hyakkihei (or, roughly translated to English, The Witch and the Hundred Cavalrymen), the game is said to be a dark fantasy RPG with a seamless open world, a high degree of freedom, and dungeon RPG elements.


This report does not come from our usual flying get sources (who are themselves quite shady), so we'd suggest waiting for confirmation.


That report from earlier about Nippon Ichi's new PlayStation 3 title The Witch and the Hundred Cavalrymen appears to be legit. New details have surfaced:


The game is a dark fantasy action RPG

The world is open and seamless -- there won't be transitions between town and field

The game will have a high degree of freedom -- the world is like a sandbox where you can do anything

The visuals are fully 3D. The perspective is from above.

There will be a packed main story with over 30 hours of play

There will be lots of sub quests

There's no game over. But, if you die, you lose your items

There's lots of blood, and the game's visual expression is dark. However, they won't be going too overboard with the grotesque.

You can choose to side with good or evil

Nippon Ichi is not using the experience it gained from making Disgaea and other titles. (Make sure you read that carefully!)


There's one confusing bit about the reports that are surfacing at present. It seems that rather than controlling the witch of the title, you're actually controlling the hundred cavalrymen. We're waiting to hear more about this area.


Majo to Hyakkihei is due for PS3 release in Spring 2012.
