Weekly Releases: Majo to Hyakkihei (Witch and the Hundred Knights), Dragon's Crown, XBlaze Code: Embryo, Gyakuten Saiban 5, Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi Extra!

Welcome to our Weekly Game Release news! A big day for Japanese game fans! Lots of games that we've been waiting to sink our teeth into, and I'm sure you guys have been to! 



From the makers of the acclaimed Disgaea series comes an action RPG in which being bad can be a good thing! Full of the same dark humor and mischief beloved by fans, The Witch and the Hundred Knights tells of two witches locked in a vicious, hundred‐year feud. As the Swamp Witch (a self‐proclaimed genius), players will command 100 powerful Knights in hopes of finally defeating her long time foe, the Forest Knight. Choose your alignment carefully, as your choices will affect nearly everything in the game, all the way down to the interaction with the NPCs.

If you've ever watched Play-Select, then you know host Gold Mountain is extremely vocal about this game. For good reason too - since Dragon's Crown's announcement in 2011, fans of old-school 4 player co-op beat'em ups with a high fantasy RPG flair have been tracking this game for the release; finally it has arrived! 

Lauded as the spiritual successor to the '97 classic Princess Crown as well as Capcom's Dungeons and Dragons: Shadows over Mystara, Vanillaware does it once again in this gorgeous hand drawn 2D Action RPG. With six unique character classes, branching paths, epic bosses, and a gamut of items, weapons and secrets, Dragon's Crown might possibly be the best type of it's genre this decade. 

Famitsu DX Pack:

  • Dragon's Crown Wallscroll (A2 size)
  • Clear Poster Set (A3 size)
  • Original Mug Cup
  • Dragon's Crown Artworks

XBlaze Code: Embryo is a visual novel video game developed and published by Arc System Works. It is a prequel to the BlazBlue series, taking 150 years before the events in the year 2050! If you follow the lore, that is about 50 years before the Dark War! 

The game, although heavily influenced by BlazBlue is designed as a standalone game - so don't worry you don't need to be a fighting game veteran to enjoy this title!
