Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Will Hit North America In 2012

Posted By | On 17th, Oct. 2011

Namco Bandai today announced that Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will hit North America in 2012 exclusively for PlayStation 3.

The unique fantasy RPG is developed by LEVEL-5, the studio behind the smash hit 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 Neighbor 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.

“We are very honored to be working with the talented Studio Ghibli and Hisaishi-san on this game,” said Akihiro Hino, president and CEO of LEVEL-5 Inc. “It is very exciting for us to bring the best of Japanese anime and video game cultures together, and also to bring it to players in Europe and America. We hope you will enjoy it.”

“With such a dream team of development talent, beautiful hand-drawn anime and an amazing fantasy universe, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will be one of our premier titles for 2012,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing, at NAMCO BANDAI Games America. “At once epic and enchanting, this is a story that will drag you in and hold you transfixed from start to finish.”
