While we have heard a few details about Nippon Ichi’s new and upcoming PlayStation 3 title The Witch and the Hundred Cavalrymen, the only thing we have actually seen from the title is a few pieces of artwork. That is until today when Dengeki Online shared a bunch of new screenshots for the title as well as a piece of artwork for the Witch known as Metallica.
In the picture you see above, we see Metallica on the right and the character on the left is the player character, currently being named Hiyakkihei in the Japanese version, though the name can be changed if you wish. Hiyakkihei is the only soldier who can take physical form and is therefore the leader of the other soldiers in place of Metallica who can only see him. In the screenshots below you can see some game play in a top down perspective, including talking to a side quest character, combat and team combat with other soldiers. Currently the title is only slated for a Japanese release next year, as there has been no word of localization at this point in time.
