Namco Bandai sent over a few screenshots of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, which is slated for a winter release in North America. The story follows Oliver who ventures into a parallel world to resurrect his mother. Oliver will fight and befriend creatures in this other world and Drippy is one of the first buddies he makes. If you’ve been following Ni no Kuni’s development you may know him by his Japanese name, Shizuku.
Just to give you an idea of how Level-5 is localizing Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, "shizuku" means drip so Drippy is an apt name for Oliver’s companion.
Another change is the name of Oliver’s hometown. In the Japanese version, it’s Hotroit (a portmanteau of hot rod and Detroit?).
In the North American version, the town is called Motorville.
Here’s a look at some of the other locations Oliver will visit when he crosses into another world.
