Ni no Kuni is a collaboration between the powerhouse videogame development studio Level-5 and the beloved animation company Studio Ghibli, which puts players in the role of a 13-year-old boy whose mother dies as a result of his actions. This, obviously, leaves the boy very sad. One day, a fairy appears before the boy and gives him a book which promises to lead him to the mysterious world of Ni no Kuni. In this world, which exists in a different time frame from the real world, the boy attempts to save his mother…
The world of Ni no Kuni actually runs parallel to the real world. Players will be able to travel between the two. Characters who appear in one world appear in the other as well, but with different roles in this unique RPG experience.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is planned for a US and Europe, PS3 exclusive release in 2012.
Here is a gameplay trailer from Tokyo Game Show 2011. Amazing!
