Ni No Kuni Wrath Of The White Witch Game PS3 Product Description

Ni no Kuni Wrath of the White Witch is an epic role-playing adventure centred from two legendary Japanase studios. Join the intimate and heart-warming tale of a young boy named Oliver, and his journey to a strange world to learn magic and bring his mother back from the dead.

  •  Oliver's emotional story and quest in a strange new world
  •  A new kind of RPG that combines western and Japanese styles of gameplay
  •  A unique companion-based combat system
  •  The creative genius of two legendary Japanese studios
  •  A visually stunning experience with anime-style cut scenes

Ni no Kuni Wrath of the White Witch tells the tale of Oliver, a 13 year-old boy from Motorville whose mother dies when saving him from drowning. Completely heartbroken, his tears bring to life a doll his mother gave to him - who reveals himself to be Drippy, a fairy from the magical parallel world called Ni no Kuni, a place where Oliver may be able to find his mother again. And so Oliver sets-off to this new world, armed with a book that will teach him the magic he needs to find his mother.

Along the way he meets many new characters, strange versions of people he knows from his own world, include Esther, an adventurer who is missing part of her heart – in the real world, she is Shelly, a sick girl who cannot leave the house. Together they explore the land, encountering more friends who help him learn and grow, formidable foes to fight, and strange creatures that Oliver can collect and build into a menagerie.

The gameplay of Ni no Kuni embraces all that you would expect from an RPG, keeping the traditional Japanese elements that make for great escapist adventure, and adding new features for an experience like no other. As you'd expect, there's a free-roaming map to take across the unique world of Ni no Kuni itself, varied transportation systems to get you around, and many secondary quests, mini-games and more.

Ni no Kuni also introduces a new, menu-driven combat system that allows you to choose who takes on your foes – you, or one of your pets. You can control this with a real level of specific detail, or pre-set instructions for your companions and colleagues with options like 'Provide Backup', 'Keep us Healthy' or 'Do What You Like'. And when you do enter into combat,you'll be greet with even more dynamic visuals as the action plays out.

All of this is delivered by the imagination and talent of two of Japan's leading creative studios – LEVEL-5 and Studio Ghibli. LEVEL-5 are the renowned studio behind the Professor Layton, Inazuma Eleven and Dragon Quest games, and bring all their experience in crafting story- and character-driven game mechanics to Ni no Kuni. The art, design and animation comes courtesy of the legendary Studio Ghibli, the anime producers responsible for films like Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle and more, and who even bring the acclaimed composer of many of these films, Joe Hisaishi , to produce the memorable score for the game.

The result is a game that expertly and seamlessly fuses the skills and genius of both creative forces, visually stunning with fully produced anime-style cut-scenes, powered by a cel-shaded graphics engine that produces cinema-quality real-time animation. Ni no Kuni offers you a world of environments, landscapes and cities, an animated movie universe inside a video game.

Reviews of Ni No Kuni Wrath Of The White Witch Game PS3

My expectations were extremely high for this game, and Level-5 has done a fantastic job at meeting them. First off, let's start with how the game looks. You can sense Studio Ghibli's involvement, even when you're not watching one of their anime cutscenes. The colours are vibrant, the characters have the signature 'Ghibli look', and the environments look like watercolour paintings come to life. This can't all be accredited to Ghibli though; Level-5 have done a fantastic job of crafting the world and everything in it. The traversal of the world was also well-planned. The further into the game you get, the more travel options are available to you, and all have their perks and places in the game. The combat is not the best I have played, but once you fully grasp the system and tame more familiars, it does start to feel like a lot of fun. The major let down would have to be the A.I. I will find my party members going against the tactics I set for them quite often. If there is a sequel to this game (which I hope there will be), this needs to be addressed. The soundtrack was composed by the legendary Joe Hisaishi, who has composed the music for some of Ghibli's movies. The soundtrack is, as expected from Hisaishi, amazing. Each track was successful in conveying the feel of the area it plays in; and somehow the repeating themes (such as the dungeon theme) fit in when they are repeated. The only negative about the soundtrack would be the battle theme - it takes too long to get 'good', almost as if Hisaishi didn't realise he was composing a battle theme. I have heard many complaints about the game's length, but I do not share them. It took my around 65 hours to complete the game and all of the sidequests; while not the longest jrpg, it is more than enough in my opinion, as this way it never feels like it's dragging on. All in all, this is a near faultless game, and I would suggest every ps3 owner to get this game.

Gameplay 9/10 Sound 9/10 story 10/10 Recommended for anyone into JRPG the game is over 40 hours and for the platinum trophy it could be easily over 100 hours it's worth your money trust me. So I'm sorry if this seems a little noobie to read as this is my first review ever XD

I absolutely love this game! And anyone who is into JRPG's or Pokemon would love this game too! The graphics, gameplay, music and overall feel is nothing short of awe-inspiring, and if you're playing it with the english audio on, the sidekick of the game 'Mr Drippy' is hilarious, along with names of monsters (most being some sort of pun) as well as jokes told here and there (some bad, but you love it anyway!).

This is a brilliant game that really takes hold of your imagination. It combines features that you might find familiar from other RPGs and monster battle games with the characteristic stylings of Studio Ghibli to create one of the most enjoyable RPG experiences you can possibly find on the PS3. The characters are memorable and often hilarious, while also being capable of very deep and emotional moments which will leave you wanting to go deeper and deeper into this masterpiece. The battle systems offer a huge amount of side content as you capture and improve your monsters while also completing a bevy of side-quests that are easily found all throughout the game. This a game you simply cannot miss out on if you're serious about RPGs and great story telling.
