Level 5 announced on twitter:

BREAKING: NI NO KUNI: WRATH OF THE WHITE WITCH will be brought to Europe and North America in 2012 by Namco Bandai!

I know I wasn't the only one worried about Japan importing this

here is the youtube trailer for it

Well, I watched some Ni No Kuni footage for the first time and I have to say, I'm impressed. The game has that Dragon Quest feel in terms of art direction mixed in with a Pokemon feel in terms of the gameplay. I've heard a lot of positive opinions about the gameplay, and I have to agree... it looks amazing.

It still doesn't have an exact release date here in the west, and I hope Namco doesn't change their minds because the game didn't sell well in Japan. This looks too good to miss.

I have a feeling Ni No Kuni will be awesome and just may be genre defining. Having Level-5 develop a deep battle system and Studio Ghibli develop the story, colorful world and epic music seems like a golden combination.

Also, the CG sequences make you feel like you are watching an Ghibli movie in theaters, and that just reminds me a whole lot of Spirited Away.

Ni No Kuni will release in North America this Winter, and Europe will be getting the game sometime in 2013. A Japanese/English dual audio feature has been confirmed for the game in both regions.

Hopefully an E3 showing will help boost sales for this game. I think this will be well worth the wait!

Also, Gamestop has also started doing preorders for this game.

A bit surprised they didn't go with the DS version, but I'm interested.

The release date changed to Early 2013 for all regions. I read that for anyone who has the Japanese version (unless I'm the only one), an All in One Edition will be released in Japan containing all the DLC for this game. Hopefully, there will be a pre-order bonus so the DLC is readily available here in the States and in Europe.

And since it wasn't posted here, check out the first English trailer. The voice acting is quite good:

Was about time, they already said they would bring it to Europe and America. They didn't know when, waiting for this game for a while now :D

Here is the E3 2012 trailer, which confirms a January 22, 2013 release date for North America. Europe will be receiving the game on January 25th.



Namco Bandai have confirmed the Wizards Collectors Edition for both North America and Europe. The Wizard's Edition comes with a beefy hardcover artbook designed to resemble the in-game Wizard's Companion, plus a cute little plush of Drippy, Oliver's guide and buddy. Digital items include two exclusive DLC familiars -- "golden mite" and "golden drongo."

It costs $100 but boasts a vast array of goodies well worth the price.
