While North America will get Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch in Winter, Europe has to wait until the first quarter of 2013. The game will be fully localized (English and Japanese voices). To pass the time, here are a bunch of screens and 4 gameplay videos.
NI NO KUNI: WRATH OF THE WHITE WITCH™ FOR PLAYSTATION®3 COMING TO EUROPE FULLY LOCALISED IN Q1 2013
Epic Japanese Role-playing Masterwork to include Japanese and English voices, with English, French, Italian, German and Spanish Subtitles
NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe is pulling out all the stops to ensure that Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch™ gives European fans the experience they want when the game launches in Q1 2013. The epic title is being localised from beginning to end in five languages, with English voices joining the original Japanese voiceover, and subtitles in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
“We have worked very hard on Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and it has been a great honour to collaborate with Studio Ghibli and Joe Hisaishi, so it was important for me that players outside Japan also have the best experience of the game we can give them,” said Akihiro Hino, President and CEO of LEVEL-5. “To make this possible, we decided to invest the time in localising the game so that as many people as possible across Europe can enjoy the full experience in their own language.”
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a heart-warming tale of a young boy called Oliver, who embarks on a journey into a parallel world to become a magician in an attempt to bring his mother back from the dead. Along the way Oliver makes new friends and adopts many of the wonderful creatures that inhabit the world, raising them to battle other creatures on his behalf as he takes on formidable enemies.
The unique fantasy adventure is developed by LEVEL-5, the studio behind the smash hits Dragon Quest VIII and IX, and the Professor Layton series. For the game’s characters and animations, LEVEL-5 collaborated with the legendary Studio Ghibli, the team responsible for countless anime masterpieces including My Neighbour Totoro, Castle in the Sky and Spirited Away. The in-game music comes from the hand of Joe Hisaishi, the composer of the scores to over 100 films including many of Studio Ghibli’s greatest productions.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is scheduled for European release in Q1 2013.
my bet is DOA Xtreme Volleyball sequel that we all want (3 Hours ago)
Kind of leaning towards Stardew Valley since I just played a few twitchy action/platforming games. (3 Hours ago)
@asdfg: I've been debating getting Stardew for a while. I kind of want to grab something tonight. Can't decide between The End is Nigh, Stardew Valley, and Enter The Gungeon at the moment. (3 Hours ago)
Got a 128 gb memory card on the way because I have a feeling that internal storage is gonna fill up fast. (14 Hours ago)
I'm planning on getting stardew, golf story and fast rmx which are cheap anyway so no big deal. Would have been nice to see a discount on splatoon. (14 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Nintendos Christmas sale has also started. None of the games on my wishlist went on sale though. :/ (15 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Would prefer a Ninja Gaiden 4 announcement but it'll probably be DOA6. Will definitely watch this weekend though. (16 Hours ago)
