Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Will Cast Its Spell This Winter


Europe won’t get to play Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch until Q1 2013, but North America isn’t getting much sooner either. Namco Bandai announced this morning that No no Kuni will be released sometime during Winter 2012 in North America.


Like the European release of the game, the North American version will feature both Japanese and English-language voice tracks.


Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch puts you in the shoes of Oliver, a young boy who crosses into another world to find his mother. The game was developed by Level-5 in collaboration with animation house, Studio Ghibli.


“Our top priority for the Western release of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is to localize the game with the same level of quality and attention to detail that fans of Level-5 and Studio Ghibli have come to expect,” said Level-5 CEO, Akihiro Hino.
