Product Description

Edition: Standard Edition

Product Description

An RPG born from the talent of two legendary studios!

Logo
Ni no Kuni combines the renowned LEVEL-5 video game studio (Professor Layton and Dragon Quest) with the animation of the world class Oscar-winning team at Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howls Moving Castle), 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.
Grove The tale of a young boy named 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.

“One of the most beautiful JRPGs of the decade” Guardian.co.uk

“Those for a penchant for Studio Ghibli’s artistic beauty are in for a real treat when this game appears” The Independent

A visually stunning game

All the ingredients of a RPG and much more

Drive Drive
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. 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 3D cut-scenes

Store 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 3D 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.

Product Description

Join the intimate and heart-warming tale of a young boy named Oliver, and his journey to a strange world to learn magic and bring his mother back from the dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Help i'm an addict 21 May 2013
Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So, there i was having spent the best part of a year playing Dark/Demon Souls and all of a sudden my gaming life felt empty, don't get me wrong i was still playing some great games but that little something special was missing. So after all the stuff i had heard and read about Ni No Kuni i thought i would give it a bash. 60hrs of game time have now passed and apart from the odd annoyance's of the occasional hand holding and the words 'broken hearted' i can safely say this the best game i have played since.
Great world, some fantastic mini games, gorgeous looking and very addictive, i can't recommend it enough. Mad thing is i have clocked 60 hrs but i only have about 6/7 trophy's.
Oh well i'm off back to the grind, if you like RPG,s like Dragon Quest then you can't overlook this,
great game and i have finally cured my Dark souls addiction...... for now

First off, a little background. Ni No Kuni is a JRPG (Japanese Role Playing Game) from Level 5, creators of the phenomenal Professor Layton series, the latest Dragon Quest games and many others, and Studio Ghibli, a world-renowned Japanese animation studio that has created countless wonderful and charming movies, even winning an Oscar. Naturally, a collaboration between the two could only be something special. And it most certainly is.

The most immediately striking feature of this game is undoubtedly its graphics; the game is a gorgeous blend of Ghibli's signature hand-drawn animated cutscenes and gameplay inspired by that very art style. At times it genuinely looks like you're playing an anime, and this art style lends a degree of charm to the world I haven't encountered since the likes of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Also of note is the quality of the voice acting, with the majority of actors doing a truly spectacular job. Somewhat disappointingly the game isn't fully vocalised, but considering the number of lines of dialogue in there it's understandable.

Both Ghibli and Level 5 are accomplished storytellers, and this shines through in what is quite probably one of the most emotive, charming and well-told video game stories ever. It follows the main character Oliver and his hilarious companion Drippy, Lord High Lord of the Fairies, and their quest to save Drippy's world and bring Oliver's recently deceased mother back to life. Along the way they will meet numerous memorable characters and visit all sorts of exotic locations, and travel between Oliver's world (our world) and Drippy's in order to save the day. Don't be fooled by the somewhat cutesy characters, this (much like Ghibli's other work) is truly a story for all ages, and definitely not just children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical 14 Feb 2013
By Big Dog
Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the best RPG I have played on the ps3. Visually stunning, a magical Disneylike story and great gameplay. Boss fights are certainly challenging but not unfairly so. The best part of this game though is the brilliant localisation and voice acting. It's charming and often hilarious! I recommend this game to anyone who likes RPGs .

5.0 out of 5 stars How To Fix A Cynical Heart 3 Feb 2013
By Greycut
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Humour me if you will. Type 'Dark Chronicle PS2' into the Amazon search engine and you will be taken to one of my favourite PS2 games. Scroll the page and your eyes to the highest rated review, made in 2004 i believe; its title...Dark Chronicle A WORK OF ART.

Yep, i agree. With every aged capslocked letter.

And so is Ni No Kuni. Another Level 5 game and another title deserving of a place in any gamers collection who has a love of that stubborn old beast, the JRPG. Ni No Kuni hits all the right notes and will whisk you to another world if you let it.

...Graphics...

The visuals are sumptuous. Dipped in detail, colour and imagination. Game developers Level 5 have risen to the challenge of creating a game world that fits so seamlessly with the artstyle of Studio Ghibli. The detail of...well everything, is stunning. Just take look at the screenshots.

The colour palette sings out, from the seasonal landscapes of the world map, to the red and blue of hero Oliver's cape and jerkin to the splashes of orange, blue and green of an early spell effect. Animation throughout is top notch (i love the way Oliver carefully navigates a stairway), and the creature design is humorous, sometimes freaky and always beguiling; stirring feelings deep in my soul of a hunter / gatherer need to *ahem* collect 'em all.

The attention to detail, craftmanship and quality are obvious from the moment you first enter the game and presented with the hero's hometown; 1950's middle America seen through a dream like lens, to the town of Ding Dong Dell, a place so well realised of a Studio Ghibli vision i half expected to bump into Haru and Muta as i stepped through a fish themed archway.

...Sound...

The soundtrack is composed by Joe Hisaishi.

Well, supposedly I should of got this in a shop in England named Game, but I suppose it was cheaper on Amazon. Being a quick delivery to my house, next day delivery, but I chose 'Super Saver Deal'. The game itself is amazing, coming from a true gamer knowing that some games don't really look amazing but they're truly amazing on the inside. That's how I'll explain the game, but in reality, it's amazing.
The graphics are stunning, the story-line itself is depressing but very real-like in it's way. Namco Bandai did do a lot of work and effort to make this game the most stunning games that most Gamer's would apply to. If I had to recommend it to a person, I would recommend playing the game, no matter what favourite genre they like in gaming-wise.
If I had to say, this is the best game I've ever played in my whole five years of gaming. Truly, it's stunning, and it's perfect for all ages. Well, excluding five and under, because sometimes they wouldn't know a clue what they're doing. Do buy this product, because you'll see it's worth it at the end.
