The Witch and the Hundred Knight was a troubled game. The original PS3 version was a little too rough around the edges, and one particular story beat early on made the witch less “entertainingly evil” and more “rabid and in need of killing”. The PS4 edition cleaned up the jankiness of the PS3, letting the combat shine through to its full potential, and now there’s a sequel that looks to sort out the tonal issues. The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 puts the little guy back into action in service of two sisters, one of which is fighting against a plague that turns innocents into witches, and the other who, of course, has become a witch. Because when is family ever easy?
The new game has been out for almost a year in Japan and has finally managed a release date for both North America and Europe. NA sees the cute and gothic action-RPG land on the PS4 March 27, while Europe has to wait a couple of extra days for March 30.
