Tipsy Prinny Night 08: NIS America debuts A Witch's Tale

NIS America held a little press event last night at the Zebulon Cafe and Bar in San Francisco. They were on hand to show off some of their upcoming titles and among the games was this new series called A Witch's Tale.  

Unlike all the other games coming out from NIS this year, A Witch's Tale is heavily focused on the touch screen. All combat in the game is done with the touch screen and you'll use the touch screen to draw runes and magic spells to attack your enemies. Not much else is known at the moment beyond what the press release (after the jump) and this debut trailer shows off.

One interesting thing about A Witch's Tale is that a new story is unlocked after you've beaten the game. Sounds like two games for the price of one. A Witch's Tale will be out on the Nintendo DS this October.  

San Francisco, CA -- NIS America unveiled Nippon Ichi Software and HitMaker's first Action RPG, "A Witch's Tale", at the NIS Amercia Press Event on June 5th in San Francisco.

This latest project from Nippon Ichi Software and HitMaker takes advantage of the touch screen of Nintendo DS by adopting a unique drawing combat system. Players will "draw" magic runes to cast various attack spells to battle eerie fairy tale monsters.

Key Features
Drawing magic -- Use your touch pen to draw various runes and cast powerful spells.
Touch action -- All combat actions like run, stab, swipe, and casting are executed by touch action.
Dual screen map -- Easily navigate through the vast world of A Witch's Tale with the dual screen. Your location and the land map will be displayed on the top screen.
Card collection -- Search out and collect all the playing cards to unlock the secret Black Jack battles. Here you can battle both enemies and friendly units.
Extra story stage  -- A new chapter story awaits the player even after beating the game for greater replay value.

Story
1,000 years ago, a tribe of powerful witches who used potent, dangerous magic lived beneath the world. One day, the witches invaded the surface world. When all seemed lost, the mystical Alice appeared. She used the witches'own magic against them and sealed them away. They say the Witch Queen still lurks beneath the land, waiting for her chance to return to power.

Found this image of myself on Ted Cruz's computer, disgraceful! Further proof he isn't natural born, no true American would have a disgusting image like this! (Censored by some idiot's ugly face)

Love, Lost, Live, Lost (2014) - Yesterday was me and my girlfriend's 16th year anniversary together, so I decided to share this song. It deals with being in love, losing that person, moving on, and learning to love again. It's 9 minutes long, too :P

I have done my part. Thank you Niero. Question: Does blocking someone also remove their front-page articles too?

So I'm hearing the UN called Japan in to discus "Banning the sale of video games or cartoons involving sexual violence against women " Which by Anita's standards = any Violence able to be done. Japan sent a 40 page long NO back to the UN in reply.

Going to be honest; I love out-of-context anime screenshots. They're... kind of incredible.

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.
