Annubis- I was referring to the witch in all the promo art. I assumed, like an idiot, that she was the protagonist. But thanks to reading comprehension, yes I get that she's just a leader and you probably play the game as one of her vassal knights. No issues with the knight. Witch who looks like an 8 year-old hoochie on the other hand...
But, again, it's not like I can say anything more about the games beyond snap judgments. If given the opportunity to play any or all of them, I hope I'm pleasantly surprised. Heck, !F completely surprised me with Hakuoki. That game was fantastic.
Cyril- I'm aware of the HitMaker connection to A Witch's Tale. I'm also aware of NIS severing ties with HitMaker and apologizing for Last Rebellion. But both A Witch's Tale and Hundred Knights have a similar style so I couldn't help but think of A Witch's Tale.
Oh, and in Xenosaga I*II for DS (JP import) Albedo put a gun to his head.
Lard- Legacista and Hundred Knights are action-RPGs. Mugen Souls is turn-based. That's what the press releases say.
