While Europe will have to wait until the first quarter of 2013, U.S. consumers will be able to get their hands on Level-5′s latest RPG, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, in winter 2012, Namco Bandai has announced. The U.S. release will include both English and Japanese voice-overs.
“The development team at Level-5 has worked very hard to ensure that Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a RPG that fans of video games and traditional animation will remember for years to come. It has been a great honor to collaborate with Studio Ghibli and Joe Hisaishi, and to incorporate all of their experience into a fantastic game,” said Akihiro Hino, President and CEO of Level-5. “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.”
Ni no Kuni launched in Japan on November 17 last year. A new set of screenshots can be seen at the gallery. Four new videos can be seen below.
