NIS America have announced that they will be localizing The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2. This PS4 action RPG will be release in both North America and Europe. Along with this announcement, the publisher uploaded a trailer.
In the Kevala region, young girls are contracting an illness that turns them into witches. Naturally, these witches have been wreaking havoc across the land. As the legendary Hundred Knight, players will explore the region and uncover its mysteries. This time around, the Hundred Knight joins forces with an agent of an anti-witch organization as well as her sister who has contracted the illness.
As with the previous game, players will need to keep an eye on their calories. Using skills can burn through energy quickly, so the Hundred Knight will need to eat frequently or suffer the pain of hunger. This sequel also features a return of the weapon swapping system. The Hundred Knight carries many weapons into battle to adapt to any situation, and players can form combos by switching them in the middle of combat. Players can expect to find lots of loot throughout the game and even craft their own equipment.
