      How about something like Final Fantasy or Wild Arms, same world and concepts yet a different story? I felt Oliver’s story ended perfectly.

      • Elvick

        I don’t care if it follows Oliver. I just want to visit the universe again.

    we need ni no kuni series :)

  • McPoo

    I’d like a new Ni No Kuni. The first was the first JRPG in years to hold my attention for longer than 4 hours. It didn’t hold it long enough to want to finish, but it was a good start.

    Loving Ni no Kuni right now. Playing it slowly as i just don’t want it to end! Also, I had no idea Professor Layton was so popular!

  • gerald

    Happy for them but I don’t want a sequel. Not every game needs sequels.

    I’d love to see more Studio Ghibli collaborations though.

  • meiam

    Hugh please no sequel, outside of the art style and Dripy everything was below average in the game.

    I am very open for more collaboration, just you know make a good story (not super predictable), character (maybe not have the MC being a complete idiot), combat system (smart AI, some challenge that would justify taking care when raiding the pet).

    • Elvick

      “Please no sequel that I could choose not to play. Don’t allow anyone else that enjoyed the game more than I did, have a sequel.”

      • meiam

        If they make a sequel in the same vein as NNK they’ll just make another similar game when instead they could be making a much better game, a game that I would like to play, but won’t happen.

        I’m sure people who enjoyed NNK would actually like another game where the AI wasn’t non existent, where the MC had somewhat of a personality and wasn’t being outsmarted by absolutely everything in existence and where the combat was more than just repeatedly pressing X. If people keep the bar low, company won’t actually put effort into the game.

        • Mark

          so you were just pressing X during combat? =c

    A spiritual successor to Rogue Galaxy please!

    • KnifeAndFork

      And less Inazuma Eleven please! (games are decent but please stop spamming and work on some other stuff thanks)

  • miyamoto

    Ni No Kuni must have a PS Vita version, …… now!!!
    congrats Level 5 and Sony!

  • PrinceHeir

    i hope we see more Studio Ghibli collaboration games in the near future!!!

    • Hidayat246

    I haven’t opened Ni No Kuni yet, i’m waiting for the right moment and give it all the time and dedication it deserves.

  • Pekola

    Can we get more Ghibli collabs then, please? More Ghibli JRPG’s would be amazing.

    Now that I think about it, wouldn’t Ni No Kuni be perfect for this ‘Uniplay’ stuff?
