Below are the details, to quote: When we launched the new, slimmer, lighter PS3, one of the top requests we heard from you was to bring the white PS3 to North America.

To quote: Today, everyone here at Namco Bandai is pleased to announce that after much excitement, speculation and community feedback, a demo for our upcoming RPG Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is now available to fans across Europe through PlayStation Store.

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is an epic adventure created by the talented Japanese development team at Level-5, with animation by the legendary Studio Ghibli, the company responsible for countless animated  masterpieces, such as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Ponyo.

Following its Japanese release in late 2011 for PlayStation 3, the game is coming to European fans on 25th January 2013, with both Japanese and English voiceover, and text localised in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

The game will also be made available in both a standard and special 'Wizard's Edition', containing a Drippy plushie and the Wizard's Companion book, which fans will see Oliver using throughout the game.

87w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up a new video today from Gamescom 2012 spotlighting a hands-on look at Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for PS3 below.

To quote: While waiting to get hands-on with Dishonored here at gamescom (impressions shared in this week's PlayStation Blogcast), I ran into an acquaintance from Namco Bandai.

He invited me to their booth to experience the two new demos for Ni no kuni: Wrath of the White Witch being shown.

I didn't pass on the opportunity, if nothing else, as an excuse to share beautiful new screens and video with you.

When launching the first demo, the demonstrator made a point of showing that the game features a Japanese language voiceover selection option. This is a frequent request from JRPG fans, so rest assured that matter is settled.

Parts of what I saw are showcased in this new gamescom trailer, so do your eyes a favor and roll the video:





The first demo, "An Errand for Father Oak," takes place very early in the game as diminutive hero-in-training Oliver is trying to get to the Ding Dong Dell, the Cat King's Castle. When the downtrodden gate guard won't let you in,...

104w ago - Sony PlayStation Correspondent Andy Burt has shared some hands-on impressions alongside a new video trailer today of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of The White Witch for the PS3 video gaming system below.

To quote: It's been quite a while since Namco Bandai Games first announced PS3-exclusive Ni No Kuni: Wrath of The White Witch.

A collaborative effort between veteran RPG maker Level-5 and veteran animation house Studio Ghibli, Ni No Kuni promises to seamlessly blend Ghibli's gorgeous art style with Level-5′s RPG chops for a completely unique experience not seen on PS3 until now.

I went hands-on with the game at Namco Bandai's recent media event in Las Vegas, exploring the lush world of Ni No Kuni, battling a plethora of creatures, and traversing through a pig-obsessed city appropriately titled Hamelin.

If you haven't yet, check out the gorgeous new trailer for Ni No Kuni: Wrath of The White Witch below.

If you're unfamiliar with what Ni No Kuni is all about, here's a quick refresher: players take on the role of Oliver, a young boy who has just lost his mother, as he searches for a way to find her again.

Once you create your Guild, you can pick your favorite character as a concierge (Guide) by purchasing a Concierge ticket item.

Your concierge is a sort of Guild mascot that helps run day-to-day operations by managing your guild's HomeTown, its guild tokens and GeoStones, and providind information about designated quests.
