With the release of Nintendo’s new console and the impending holiday season, it can be easy to forget January. But if you are a Ghibli fan and haven’t already pre-ordered Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on PS3, now may be a good time.
Below we have some glorious new screenshots for Ni No Kuni, which is due for PS3 on January 25th. If, like me, the new screens have reminded you just how much you want the stunning Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch Wizard’s Edition, you may be disappointed to hear that GAME online have already sold out of their allotted pre-orders. Better start shopping around…
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Features:
- An RPG born from the talent of two legendary studios – Ni no Kuni combines the renowned LEVEL-5 video game studio with the animation of the world class team at Studio Ghibli, and the music of the equally legendary Joe Hisaishi, composer on many Ghibli movies. The result is a RPG which expertly fuses these formidable talents.
- A visually stunning game – During their travels with Oliver, players will be able to immerse themselves in a series of incredible environments, landscapes and cities, as if they were entering an animated movie universe inside a video game.
- All the ingredients of a RPG and much more – LEVEL-5’s mastery of the genre results in a game that offers the best of a RPG and more: a free roaming map, varied transportation systems, a tactical yet easy to handle combat system and a myriad of secondary quests, mini-games and bonuses.
- A captivating story with anime-like cut-scenes – The player enters the magical universe of Ni no Kuni and begins the journey with Oliver, meeting all kinds of people on the way. Yoshiyuki Momose from Studio Ghibli supervised the storyboards for the in-game cut-scenes and provided stage directions for the motion capture sequences, bringing all his expertise from the animation world to bear on the game’s story.
