The Legend of Dark Witch is a 2d, action, platformer where you play as a dark witch named Zizou. The Legend of Dark Witch has similarities to Mega Man in that you can steal and use boss powers after defeating them. The ability to steal boss powers will undoubtedly be useful in your journey to collect the missing Syega Crystals. Also, you will be able to collect “Tres” that can be used to upgrade your abilities. In fact, it seems that this power-up system has been influenced by the classic shooter, Gradius.
The game promises to offer diverse, challenging levels, three difficulty modes, and additional bonuses for those that replay the game.
The Legend of Dark Witch will be released in North America on Thursday, October 16 for $3.99.
October 2014 brings us new featured game rewards over at Club Nintendo. Despite being October, Nintendo isn’t offering many horror-themed titles, though there are a few here that may be worthy of your coins.
My recommendations for this month are Kirby’s Dream Course and Donkey Kong.
Since its release in Japan on September 13, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has sold over 2.8 million units worldwide. One has to wonder if Super Smash Bros. for Wii U can reach these numbers in a similar time-frame.
