Another delightful, PS3 exclusive is headed our way and this might just be the best one yet. We already know Namco Bandai picked up the North American and European publishing rights for Level-5 and Studio Ghibli’s turn-based RPG Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. Now we have a better idea of when we’ll be getting it.
If you’re in North America, you’ll be pleased to know that Ni no Kuni can be added to your holiday wishlist. Namco Bandai has tagged a Q4 2012 release window onto it, which means we’ll probably see it in time for the Black Friday sales. People in Europe have to wait just a little bit longer as their version will be out in Q1 2013. People in Japan are the most fortunate of all, as they already have it. It came out there on November 17, 2011.
Namco Bandai’s European branch also released a brand new trailer showing what Oliver’s Ni no Kuni adventures.
If you liked the Japanese voice acting you heard in the footage above, then there’s more good news! Both the North American and European releases will have both English and Japanese voice acting. Players will be able to go with whichever they prefer.
Well, this just made it onto my mental list of games I can’t wait for in 2012! It’ll sit comfortably right behind Mass Effect 3.
