A few weeks ago we brought you our impressions of the Nintendo Switch version of Little Witch Nobeta, and today we do the same with our analysis of the title. The game, which was released a few years ago for computers, has recently reached consoles thanks to Idea Factory, and we’ll tell you if it’s worth this kind of “Dark Souls kawaii”as defined by some of the players who have already completed it.
A little witch in a big castle
The story of Little Witch Nobeta leads us to embody a little witch who embarks into the depths of a dangerous castle with the aim of reach his throne, and thus, remember who he really is. However, she will not be alone, since as she advances a little in the adventure she will run into a black cat that will guide herserving as his only companion.
As you can imagine, nobeta castle is not a child-friendly place. There are plenty of traps, enemies and powerful bosses. Luckily, we will have at our disposal all kinds of tools to face any challenge. As we go through the castle we will be unlocking new abilities (like the double jump) or new types of magic of the most varied. Along with that, we will have other assets, such as the possibility of improve our attributes in statues scattered around the map or to block and attack melee thanks to our staff.
In general terms, the game presents a good degree of difficulty, and although its development is quite simple, it has managed to entertain us and keep us hooked on the controls. Above all, what we have enjoyed the most are the battles against the bosses, all full of quite a lot of charisma. It is in these confrontations that we have felt that the game really shinesputting us on the ropes by having to control our vitality and our mana with extra care.
It’s worth it, but…
Little Witch Nobeta has a acceptable soundtrackAlthough it doesn’t stand out too much. The same thing happens to her visual section, which complies (especially in the design of the protagonist and in that of the enemies), but which can be somewhat repetitive in terms of other elements such as common enemies of the castle. The game has different outfits for Nobeta, which we can unlock if we carry out various achievements. Altogether, we can make our way through the game in a estimated time six to nine hoursdepending on our skill level.
Finally, the game has texts in Spanish, which is appreciated. On the other hand, except some very punctual fall, we have not experienced any performance issues with the title. The big but that we would put, yes, is that does not have gyroscope functions, which would be ideal since we will spend a lot of time aiming to cast our magic at enemies. And it is that a gameplay that works well on computers thanks to the keyboard and mouse, does not have to translate so well to consoles if it is not adapted properly.
Little Witch Nobeta We found it to be a simple but fun game. Its gameplay is engaging and its progression system is very good. However, the low variety of enemies beyond the bosses and the lack of compatibility with the nintendo switch gyroscope are some of its weaknesses. Yet it is a game that I would recommend to all adventure lovers and third person shooters. If the style calls you, give it a try!
Little Witch Nobeta is available for Nintendo Switch at a price of 49,99 euros both in physical format and in digital formatwith texts in Spanish and a required storage space of 2347,00 MB.
