Studio Ghibli And Level-5 Collaboration "Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch' Is Coming To The U.S.

This Studio Ghibli And Level-5 PS3 game will get a stateside release sometime next year

The powerhouse developer behind some of the most popular RPGs in Japan (that would be Level-5) and the animation studio responsible for some of the most visually exquisite films of the last 30 years (that would be Studio Ghibli) teamed up for a game, and a year after its Japanese release, we're going to get to play it stateside. The Namoc-Bandai release is coming to the U.S. sometime next year as a PS3 exclusive.

Here's the official synopsis:

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is an epic tale of a young boy, Oliver, who embarks on a journey to become a master magician and bring back his dead mother from the parallel world of Ni no Kuni. Along the way he encounters some extraordinary characters, many of whom become helpful allies. They guide Oliver as he explores the vast world and learns the magical skills that will make him strong enough to face his most deadly foes, and ultimately survive an encounter with the White Witch herself.

In the game, the beauty of Studio Ghibli’s hand-drawn animation has been perfectly reproduced, with the cel-shaded graphics engine producing stunning real-time animations of a quality normally only seen in their industry-leading feature films. In addition, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on PlayStation®3 brings a wealth of new content to the Ni no Kuni universe, with an additional cast of mysterious characters to meet, new areas to explore, and a whole different perspective on the involving story.
