NIS America has announced that Action RPG The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is heading to North America and Europe next year for PlayStation 4. The sequel released earlier this year in Japan and holds no direct connection to the first game in the series. The niche publisher also released a short announcement trailer and a handful of screenshots from the Japanese version of the game.
In typical NIS America fashion, a Limited Edition will be available in North America for $79.99 exclusively from the publisher's Online Store. This special edition includes a copy of the game, a Collector's Box, Hardcover Art Book, 2-Disc Soundtrack, a Set of 9 Metal Lapel Pins, and a Hundred Knight Stress ball.
