The popularity of JRPGs in the West has been on somewhat of a downward spiral in recent years but the release of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has reignited many fans’ passion for the genre thanks to its engaging story, beautiful cel-shaded visuals and sweeping score by notable Studio Ghibli collaborator Joe Hisaishi (Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle).
It’s also worth mentioning that the game makes full use of the PS3’s Blu-ray format, weighing in at almost 22GB.
Namco Bandai recently released a new story trailer for the game which masterfully paints a picture of the epic adventure awaiting us when Ni no Kuni is released in European territories next Friday.
Take a look below:
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was released this week in the US and will be available in European territories from February 1st.
