The Witch and The Hundred Knight is a dungeon-crawler role-playing game made by Nippon Ichi Software. It was released in Japan on July 25, 2013 and was released on March 21, 2014 and March 25, 2014 in North America. It is considered to be Nippon Ichi's first 3D rendered game.
A sequel titled The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 was announced and slated for a release in Winter 2017, though the events of the game are unrelated to the first, as they take place in a new world.
Fed up with being unable to travel beyond the borders of her swamp, the witch Metallia forges a contract with the legendary Hundred Knight to help her realize her ambition of spreading her swamp throughout all of Medea. The Hundred Knight's mission is to do whatever his master commands. He must explore the world, destroy Pillars built to prevent her swamp from spreading, and wreak indiscriminate havoc. However, in the back of his inhuman mind, he begins to wonder about what prevents Metallia from leaving the swamp. Why do the other witches shun her, and how can she survive in a swamp that is notorious for how poisonous its fumes are? Is Metallia really a witch to respect, or is she one to fear?

The gameplay involves recurring stages wherein the player controls the Hundred Knight in battle. Players will be able to explore an open world that may expand if particular side-quests are promptly fulfilled. In the midst of battle, players will participate in a top-down view wherein battles are fought in a style reminiscent of a hack-and-slash.
