Ni No Kuni Given Q1 2013 Release Window

By David Howard, Editor-in-Chief and Founder

Delightful looking PlayStation 3 exclusive Ni No Kuni: Wrath of The White Witch, as been given a release window of Q1 2013, Namco Bandai announced.

In development by Level 5 and Studio Ghibli, the Japanese game is being localised and will include not only the Japanese and English voice work, but also subtitles for English, German French, Italian and Spanish.

“We have worked very hard on Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and it has been a great honour to collaborate with Studio Ghibli and Joe Hisaishi, so it was important for me that players outside Japan also have the best experience of the game we can give them,” said Akihiro Hino, President and CEO of Level 5.

“To make this possible, we decided to invest the time in localising the game so that as many people as possible across Europe can enjoy the full experience in their own languageā€

The game was originally expected to release sometime this year, but we now know this is not the case.
