Ni no Kuni launch trailer

Highly praised PS3 JRPG out now in the US, early February in Europe

Namco Bandai has released the launch trailer for Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.


The PS3 game launched this week in the US, but the European Ni no Kuni release date was recently delayed by one week in Europe and Australasia to February 1 due to logistics issues.

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

A 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 embarks on a journey into a parallel world to become a magician in an attempt to bring back his recently-deceased mother.

Our latest Ni no Kuni preview suggested it looks set to be the best JRPG in ages. Check back on the site later this week for our Ni no Kuni review.
