A Witch's Tale – NIS' cutesy Halloween-themed role-playing game for the DS – is back after a year's absence with more tantalizing Goth-tinged images.

The game features a totally stylus-controlled interface where players both move the character in the world map and control attacks and magic in the turn-based RPG combat. The press release says the story revolves around the invasion of the surface world by witches from beneath the world. A girl named Alice who can use the witches' magic against them drives them back, but the Witch Queen is still around, waiting for her chance to return to the surface.
