Details have emerged regarding a new Nippon Ichi property coming for the PS3, titled The Witch and the Hundred Cavalrymen; or Majo to Hyakkihei if you prefer the Japanese title. Reportedly a dark fantasy action RPG, little is known about the plot and mechanics. However, the game will feature seamless transitions between town and field, and death results in item loss rather than a straight game over. The bullet points hype up a large number of sidequests, a sandbox-type world, and “a choice between good or evil,” although the nature of each has not yet been explained.
The game is expected to release in Spring 2012 in Japan. No US release has been announced.
