Ni no Kuni delayed a week in Europe

New European date set for February 1.

Namco Bandai has delayed the European release of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch a week from its original January 25 release to February 1.

The delay, according to the publisher, is “due to logistics delays.” To compensate, the game will launch with a “free gift to download” for all.

This will not affect the North American release, which will launch as planned on January 22.

    There not missing anything. I played the demo and the combat was not fun at all.

      All publishers should have “Nate’s Opinion” on the front of every cover.

      I actually didn’t have a problem with it. It was different but it wasn’t bad. Not as bad as Game of Thrones… Nothing is as bad as Game of Thrones xD
      I think Ni no Kuni’s battle system is an evolution of the one used in White Knight Chronicles.

        It’s possible some ppl could find the battle system a little challenging because it does requires some thought. So having to think while in combat could be consider more work than fun to some ppl.

        I for one love the battle system and can’t wait to get my hands on the full version.

      This game is a masterpiece in my opinion, so I don’t care.

      then why do you post your comment here then? Keep your broken opinions for yourself next time. Doesn’t this news concern those who are waiting for the game to release?

      I don’t understand why it’s not Sony that is publishing this game, they’re gonna regret it like they did with Demon’s Souls!

    A free gift to download just for a week delay? Not bad, thanks!
    I don’t mind this.
