The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2

Postby solechris » Sat Dec 26, 2015 8:20 am

so is there any information regarding the sequel? i know it got announced back in like july? but other than the teaser trailer i dont think we gotten any other information. there's a game coming out called "coven and labyrinth of refrain" that has a very similar look to TWatHK so i wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Might as well update this.

There's finally been some news for the game.

A release date for Japan has been revealed along with the introduction of some characters.

Overall, it's looking interesting. I'm kind of disappointed that there's apparently going to be no connection to the first game but if it means allowing the story to be able to stand on it's own better, I'm fine with that.

Hmm. Well, this doesn't look interesting to me at all. I agree that it's disappointing that this is entirely disconnected from the first game, though. It's not the Hundred Knight that I'm here for.

May be just as well, considering it's for a console I don't have.

The teaser website is up. The full website is stated to go up on the 20th.

We've got an update with some screenshots and more information.

Some initial thoughts.

I'm definitely noticing some differences in the UI:
- Facets are actually shown off at the lower-right along with an EXP gauge
- AP is now shown numerically instead of a segmented gauge
- There are commands under the HP/AP gauge (maybe they are Tochka and you can set multiple now? Maybe they are actual skills?)
- There's something on the lower-left (I have no idea what that is, a new Chaos Revelation system/icon is my immediate thought)
- There is some text along the edges of the mini-map (more open world?)
- I also don't see any icons for equipment sets (maybe equipment is tied to each equipped Facet now?)

Other than that, the graphical fidelity of the game definitely looks improved over "TW&THK: Revival". Though that first screenshot makes me wonder if you have more control over the camera (zooming in that close or getting that low of an angle was impossible in the first game) or that was just done that way for the screenshot to showcase the graphics.

Story and character wise, I don't have much to say besides that it seems interesting enough for now. Will have to wait for more info in future updates.

Oh, and the website updated as well. It's mostly the same stuff covered in the article but there is some extra stuff, more screenshots and a bgm.

And finally, some gameplay for roughly 10 minutes. Audio is a bit out of sync though.

If nothing else, the game definitely looks a lot better in the graphical and animation department.

And as usual, the website updated and there's a new trailer for the game.

Just wanted to chime in so it doesn't look so lonely here, thanks for keeping us updated! Really glad to get more news on this game, the gameplay seems refined already with more abilities (and the keybindings seem effective enough R1+Button).

Now if only the overarching story holds up to the first game~

UI is nicer, but the big improvement is finally making it such that environmental details vanish when they obstruct the player's view of the scene. Apart from the frequent crashing, that is the biggest complaint I had with the original game.

Update time.

More info on some of the characters from Weiss Ritter and a basic overview of the gameplay, including some of the new mechanics like Facet skills.

Any words anywhere of an English release? I am guessing they aren't usually simultaneous?

Nothing as of yet. At least from what I've noticed, NISA usually doesn't announce if they are bringing over any NIS games until sometime after their Japanese release. Or at the very least very close to the Japanese release date.
