Ni no Kuni delayed by a week in Europe and Australasia

Free downloadable item offered to players as compensation

Namco Bandai has delayed the release of PS3 JRPG Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch by one week in Europe and Australasia.


"Due to logistics delays Ni no Kuni will launch 1st February 2013 with a free gift to download," the publisher said on Twitter.

"Sadly this is an issue we no longer have control over," it added. "It was a difficult decision to take as our options were limited, we are sorry for the delay."

To compensate for the delay, a free Draggle familiar will be made available to download on launch day.

A dream collaboration between Professor Layton studio Level 5 and Hayao Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli animation outfit, Ni no Kuni tells the tale of a young boy named Oliver, who's drawn into a strange fantasy land parallel to our own in order to save it from a mysterious evil.

Our most recent Ni no Kuni preview suggested it looks set to be the best JRPG in ages.
