Ni no Kuni is coming to North America in early 2012. That much we know. What we didn’t know was what it’ll be called when it gets here. Thanks to a U.S. trademark filing by Level-5 discovered today, we might now know.
Level-5 trademarked the name Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on September 29, 2011 in the United States. That’s right. It’ll keep its Japanese Ni no Kuni title.
Our Take: We love them, but Level-5 is crazy to market a game called Ni no Kuni in the west. We wish them the best of luck.
