Product Description

Product Description

Ni no Kuni Wrath of the White Witch is an epic role-playing adventure centred from two legendary Japanase studios. 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.

  • Discover Oliver's emotional story and quest in a strange new world.
  • Explore a new kind of RPG that combines western and Japanese styles of gameplay.
  • Get to grips with a unique companion-based combat system.
  • Uncover the creative genius of two legendary Japanese studios, that creates a visually stunning experience with anime-style cut scenes.

Ni no Kuni Wrath of the White Witch tells the tale of Oliver, a 13 year-old boy from Motorville whose mother dies when saving him from drowning. Completely heartbroken, his tears bring to life a doll his mother gave to him - who reveals himself to be Drippy, a fairy from the magical parallel world called Ni no Kuni, a place where Oliver may be able to find his mother again. And so Oliver sets-off to this new world, armed with a book that will teach him the magic he needs to find his mother.

Along the way he meets many new characters, strange versions of people he knows from his own world, include Esther, an adventurer who is missing part of her heart - in the real world, she is Shelly, a sick girl who cannot leave the house. Together they explore the land, encountering more friends who help him learn and grow, formidable foes to fight, and strange creatures that Oliver can collect and build into a menagerie.

The gameplay of Ni no Kuni embraces all that you would expect from an RPG, keeping the traditional Japanese elements that make for great escapist adventure, and adding new features for an experience like no other.

I heard that there was a sequel for this game in the works so I decided to buy this game and truly I am struggling to find anything really negative to say about it aside from that it borrows a bit from the pokemon video game series and yet it looks at that financially successful franchise and flicks it away like a spec of dirt.

I thought the story was very good one of the best I have seen in a rpg it is well thought out with a good amount of twists to keep you engaged, all the major cast members have a backstory you would not get that in a pokemon game.

The gameplay once again very good the battle system was unique and after a few battles easy to use, side quests was varied so you wouldn't get bored, I liked the alchemy aspect of the game where you could make new stronger weapons, shields and accessories, the in-game language decoding I admit I had a few problems with and had to look up for the answers to learn new spells but the rest I figured out myself, however it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the game.

The soundtrack had a lot of catchy tunes that helped me get even more immersed into the game, overall if you like rpgs this is a must buy and even if you don't traditionally buy these genre games you won't go wrong with this, it's more bang for your money than any generic pokemon game. After playing this I am looking forward to the second game in the series which I will definitely be purchasing .

I really enjoyed this game. The graphics are beautiful and all the characters are great, especially Drippy! (Definitely use the English version if you speak English - the welsh characters are fab) The music is gorgeous and is recorded by a full orchestra which makes such a difference when you're exploring big maps like in this game - lots of playing hours. Minor bug bears like overly long tutorials/very slow increase of difficulty/too much time spent in a realm where you can't use magic etc bring it down from a five star but it is really worth playing if you enjoy RPGs.

Tons of stuff to do in this JRPG. Of all those I've played, this one needs utmost patience, preparedness to re-start the game umpteen times, and spend most of your life levelling-up. The story line is good, it looks wonderful, but without sneaking a peek at the only 'written' guide on the "FAQs + Walkthroughs" website, you will miss a ton of stuff, some of which may prevent you from progressing the game. Also, you WILL need to keep your own notes and stats.This will be apparrent if you are a 'smash your way through' type, and then end up at the next to final chapter, knowing that your chances of success have just zero'd. You do need to take your time, but, if you like capturing and nurturing monsties, alchemy formulas, flying, sailing, collecting, and not having to wait for specific waypoints to appear before saving, you will love this, Only annoying part for me is the combat system. As you progress, you will have 3 characters to control. You will find the command options for your two colleagues frustrating. For the purposes of monstie collecting, you will have to develop your own tactics, 'coz your mates really are a pain! Having said all that, I love it to bits. It's now very cheap to buy a new copy of a game that's only a couple of years old. Get it. Enjoy it.

Upfront admissions, I have a deep love for JRPG’s and am a big fan of studio Ghibli, and both these factors contribute greatly to my enjoyment of this game. Having declared my hand already it will be of no surprise that I found this to be an excellent experience that I would recommend to anyone with a passing interest in either the genre or the animation studio. The game however is not without its flaws. Firstly the first 10 hours operate as a My First RPG, keeping the player under tight control, placing a big star on the world map and saying go here. There is no deviation, no free thinking just a pure linear trek between stars. Also in the period the games mechanics are drip fed to you slowly, so very very very slowly. The combat starts badly with a single familiar (think pokemon) and some awkward fighting system that is a hybrid of Dark Chronicle and Dragon Quest VIII, both from the same developers. The mixture of real time movement, turn based move selections feels a worse option than sticking to the regular conventions of either method. I never fully warmed to the combat system, but its annoyances and restrictions recede over the course of the game. The Playstation appears to be of a similar opinion as well, as the AI companions never get to grips with what they are supposed to do, dying frequently and burning through action points at alarming rates until you fiddle with their settings. However once you become an expert in cancelling, kiting and have a full set of over levelled minions the quirks and failing are largely forgotten as barring boss fights combat becomes but a minor distraction. The other game systems are pretty good. The visibility of quest givers, and objectives on maps is a modern convention that is greatly appreciated.Read more ›

If you love watching Studio Ghibli films and enjoy playing JRPG's, you will love playing this game.

It's 40+ hours of Studio Ghibli goodness in a Japanese Role-Playing Game format.
