Product Description

Edition:The Wizards 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.

Box Contains

  • Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Game for Playstation 3
  • Exclusive DLC 'Golden Mite' and 'Golden Drongo' Familiars
  • Drippy Plush Doll
  • 300+ Page Hardcover 'The Wizard's Companion' Book

My game of "this generation" without a doubt. I am new to the jrpg genre and boy I am having a blast. This game as sucked the very soul from my body and is a true work of art. The graphics are amazing, the combat system is top notch. The game has some nice touches that would take too long to write down. If you are undecided about this game, do not hesitate pick it up now.

Just a quick note on the wizards edition. If you have seen the version that people got in north America via ordering direct with Namco do not be fooled. The uk version is very inferior. Go on you tube and watch the us unboxing and the uk unboxing. Our version is still nice, just nowhere near as good as the American one.

I love studio ghibli. For three years I have been anticipating the release of this game and I purchased a ps3 specifically because this game was to be released on this platform. Don't get me wrong I have other games to but this one makes me so happy! So far the game play is wonderful, the world is beautiful, the animated cut scene sequences are as expected amazing and in the studio ghibli style it makes me smile every time it's time for a cut scene!

I recommend this game to any rpg lovers and of course to any ghibli fan. It really doesn't get any better for me and I just cannot put it down!

Edition: The Wizards Edition Verified Purchase
I was glad to receive my wizards edition on launch day with the excellent spell book and Mr drippy plushy (good innit mun) plus extra dlc. what can I say about this game that already hasn't been said, not much really it has amazing graphics an awesome soundtrack and is a mix of classic RPG and pokemon and a adventure that will last you over 60 hours worth of gaming what's not to like. the only bad point is the fiasco the publisher made (Namco Bandai) with the stock of the game they didn't count on the game selling out so quick and a lot of people ended up getting their order cancelled.

awesome game highly recommend it to any PS3 owner.

Edition: The Wizards Edition
Being a huge fan of Studio Ghibli and also a fan of Level 5's previous work I was stoked to hear that there was going to be a RPG collaboration between the two. When I finally got to see some screen shots from the game I was completely hooked to purchase on day of release, something I have moved away from doing now and even opted for the Wizards Edition despite being a little short on coin!
The Wizard edition comes in a beautiful well-presented box, with fantastic artwork around the outside. Inside consists of the game, a well-made Plush toy of Drippy and the Wizard Companion book. The Wizard Companion is also featured in game and you will collect pages as you progress but its nice having to actual book in front of you and it really is a beautiful book.

The graphics are stunning and so too is the soundtrack. Some of the cut scenes are anime style straight from Studio Ghibli which is fantastic to watch and others are taken with in game graphics. One issue I had was that not all the cut scenes are voiced and you will find that the ones that do start off with voices but then quickly revers to text. As the voice acting is superb I couldn't understand why they chose to do this and it does take away some of the games charm.

The controls and battle system is easy to pick up, you collect familiars as you progress through the game which are enemies you have converted to your side and fight on your behalf. Each familiar can be leveled up, trained, morphed and given new equipment. There are loads of them in the game and there is even a trophy for getting 250 different ones which seemed to me a bit excessive considering I finished the game at 80 hours with 128 which is only over half the needed amount.

Got this on day 1 release and love it! The spell book is beautifully made and has so much detail in it. You need to sit and read it because the amount of thought and detail gone into it is fantastic!

Mr Drippy too has been well made. He is still sat on my games shelve and has shown no wear or tear.

The game itself is a masterpiece for all JRPG and Studio Ghibli fans of all ages. Olivers story is heartbreaking yet there are laughs along the way as you help him through his journey.

Its exciting the second game has been announced and cannot wait to return to the beautiful world that is Ni No Kuni.

Edition: The Wizards Edition Verified Purchase
I managed to obtain a copy of the Wizard's Edition recently and I can happily say that I am very pleased with my purchase. As other reviewers of the Wizard's Edition have said, the stand-out item is the Wizard's Companion book. It's extremely well-made; with all manner of material inside that not only expands upon the universe of Ni No Kuni, but also comes in handy for actually playing the video game itself (there are spoilers within mind). The Drippy plush doll is also good (and a tad cute if you like that sort of thing) and the DLC is useful too, but the Wizard's Companion is arguably one of the nicest video game collector's pieces that I've come across - and I've come across a few!

By the way, the game itself isn't too bad either...
