Disgaea developer Nippon Ichi is bringing its colourful PS3-exclusive action-RPG, The Witch and the Hundred Knight, to Europe on 21st March, publisher NIS America has announced.

North Americans will receive it too a few days later on 25th March (Thanks, AllGamesBeta).

The confusing - and seemingly grammatically incorrect - title follows the exploits of a witch who's destined to stay within the confines of a swamp. Why must she stay in the swamp? That's the mystery. Her solution: expand the mire so it encompasses more of the world. To do this, she's recruited the aid of the Hundred Knight, who seems to be a singular person who's part of a group of a hundred knights - though it sounds like you'll be able to briefly summon its 99 brethren. I guess that makes the title misleading whether it uses the plural form of Knight or not.

Based on the Japanese trailer below, The Witch and the Hundred Knight looks every bit as bonkers as you'd expect from its title. It even has quick-time eating mini-games where you devour your foes by mashing buttons.
