Back in 2010, Level-5 released the first Ni no Kuni game on DS, which was never brought over to Western regions. Instead, the West received the enhanced remake for PS3. Flashforward to December 2018, and now the game has received a full English fan translation by ZKarts, Anjiera, and their team.
One of the major factors to the game not coming over to the West was the heavy reliance on a 352-page tome that came with the game which was meant to be used to solve the game’s various puzzles. Alongside the game, the tome has also been translated into a 372-page PDF. The fan translation translates the title of the game as Ni no Kuni: The Jet-Black Mage.
