There's nothing light about this adventure!

CIRCLE Entertainment has announced its Japanese 3DS eShop hit The Legend of Dark Witch will be released in North America on October 16th for $3.99, with a European release to be determined.

The Legend of Dark Witch is a 2D platform action game where players take on the role of the witch Zizou who has been tasked with retrieving missing Syega crystals (ore that provides the people of the world with magical powers) after they are mysteriously stolen by an unknown culprit.

Along the way, Zizou will encounter various bosses, and gain experience in battle which can then be used to upgrade her abilities. Adding to the adventure is a beautifully depicted world, a diverse range of levels, additional bonuses for those who replay the game, and three difficulty modes.
