According to the Gpara article, Witch Tale is the story of an apprentice witch, with a fairy tale motif coupled with dark themes. In the apprentice role is Ridel, a student at a witch school who longs to be the most famous witch in the world. She ends up in a fight against an ancient witch who has recently been revived.

Taking control of Ridel, players find themselves in a portal world in the underground of Roro Castle. From there, they can access the world's seven themed kingdoms. While moving about through these worlds, players encounter enemies and head off into battles. These battles make use of the stylus as players drag magic icons into slots in order to attack enemies.

The Gpara.com article says to expect further details on how the stylus is used in battle in a future update.
