From the review, "When it comes to games developed by Nippon Ichi Software (NIS), you have a pretty good idea of what you’re going to get. It’ll probably be some kind of strategic RPG, most likely with 2D, HD character sprites and an isometric world. Usually a turn-based affair, but occasionally a roguelike. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll see a visual novel sometimes too. But you have an idea in mind. The Witch and the Hundred Knight is the first attempt to break out of a mold NIS has perfected with a 3D, action RPG. And, while The Witch and the Hundred Knight is definitely a learning experience for the developer, it’s a good first step."
