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

12:38 AM on 06.06.2008 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

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.

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.

Well, everyone is throwing in their opinion on women and games, and here I am... writing a blog about being aroused by female characters in games as a kid... Perhaps I should hold off, I have a feeling it may just be taken the wrong way.

Started playing Wonderful 101 and it's good, but pretty overwhelming. Think I'll put it down for now. Also sad that there is no penis formation. [img][/img]

Does anyone know if Advent of Indies is happening this year? I looked it up today and didn't find any updates on their Twitter since January.

I brought that cake I made into work and it disappeared fast. Maybe if I lose my job I can just make a living selling cakes on the end of my street.

My review-in-progress of Just Cause 3: Explosions - good. Grappling hook - good. Flying - good. Driving - an abomination. 8/10.

Well, ugh, this is awkward. A year ago I wrote a cblog about cool indie games coming in 2015, and not a single one of them has been released :/

I was happy to have never spoiled myself the final boss of Splatoon's campaign. That was one of the best boss fights ever and I absolutely love the credits track. So relaxing. [youtube][/youtube]

Sometimes, on more dreary days, I make a smiley face with sliced-pickle eyes and bacon grin in my lunch-burger. It fills me up all the same, but I feel a warm sense of accomplishment, achievement and satisfaction on top of it.
