Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a heart-warming tale of a young boy called Oliver, who embarks on a journey into a parallel world to become a magician in an attempt to bring his mother back from the dead. Along the way Oliver makes new friends and adopts many of the wonderful creatures that inhabit the world, raising them to battle other creatures on his behalf as he takes on formidable enemies.
The unique fantasy adventure is developed by LEVEL-5, the studio behind the smash hits Dragon Quest VIII and IX, and the Professor Layton series. For the game’s characters and animations, LEVEL-5 collaborated with the legendary Studio Ghibli, the team responsible for countless anime masterpieces including My Neighbour Totoro, Castle in the Sky and Spirited Away. The in-game music comes from the hand of Joe Hisaishi, the composer of the scores to over 100 films including many of Studio Ghibli’s greatest productions.
The epic title is being localised with English or the original Japanese voiceover, with English subtitles included as an option.

Level 5 and Studio Ghibli have crafted a beautiful game world to explore, not only that but the gameplay is fun (a mix between pokemon and the tales series). The storyline is touching and the sound is top notch. For anyone who is an existing fan of JRPGs or for those looking for a good starting point to get into the genre, this is the game for you.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is fabulous! It's the best of this generation of consoles. It's highly recommended!
I have received Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch as promised. The game is nice and the service of the store is excellent.
Ni No Kuni is a game that just keeps on giving. 15 hours in and I have barely touched the surface of what is setting out to be an epic game. The Studio Ghibli animation style is breathtaking. The characters are varied and all bring something different to the table. The writing is witty and imaginative, at times I found myself laughing out loud to some of Drippy's comments. Gameplay wise the combat systems offers a lot of flexibility in terms of how to go about a battle. The battles take place in real time although cool-downs are in effect so you have to plan your attacks. Having not completed the game I cannot comment on the overall impact of Ni No Kuni, but after the first 15 hours I can definitely say that I cannot wait to play the next 15.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is one of the best games I've played in the last few years. This is the only game in which I try to get platinum a trophy. I'm only little sad that I haven't bought the wizard's edition, because it's pretty cool and also useful in the game. Must have for everybody!
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is breathtaking, beautiful and captivating. If you are sick of blood thirsty games with all their violence and crude language, lose yourself in the wonderful world(s) this game offers you. Yes, gameplay combat can occasionally be frustrating and yes, it can be a little "twee" at times but it will draw you in and put a smile on your face. The Welsh character Drippy is very funny and the lead character, Oliver, is so nice you feel that you need to protect him on his adventures. I love this game, my children love this game and my grandchildren love this game. So, if you want to all sit round the TV this Easter and be transported to another land full of adventure you know what to do. Order this game from Zavvi today, you will not regret it.
My first encounter with Ni no Kuni was at the Tokyo Game Show and being a Studio Ghibli fan myself it's visual style immediately appealed to me. The story seemed interesting from what could be gathered from the trailers and when I finally got down to play the game I was not disappointed. The Playstation 3 renders the vibrant and colourful world(s) beautifully and the game is set to the tunes of renowned composer Joe Hisaishi. In the early stages of the game you are rail-roaded with lots of cut-scenes but at some point you are really stepping out into the game and the transition from watching a Ghibli story to being part of a Ghibli story is really smooth. Then, one by one, game and battle mechanics are introduced. Players face puzzles, learn magic, complete side-quests and learn all about a pet system not unlike Pokémon. To me at least it feels very complete. The option to choose Japanese or English voices just tops it off for me. My only regret is that I didn't get the wizard edition that includes a real-life copy of the spellbook you use in the game.
Ni No Kuni is the best JRPG I have played since Chrono Trigger, with a jaw-dropping sound track and some Ghibli animations in-between. Highly recommended even if you normally don't like JRPG games.
In recent years there has been a drought of the JRPG on PS system. That is why Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch came as a breath of fresh air for me. The game's story is a bit of cliche, but with a twist. First of all, the main protagonist is not a pumped up teen, but rather an innocent boy. And although the 'save the world' theme is ever present, the main character's motives for going through the quest are very personal. The game's main theme, loss and how to deal with it, is presented in a very approachable way and is not an indifference to anyone. Technically, the game looks and plays beautifully. Studio Ghibli did an expected, flawless job with design and animations. There are a couple of screen tearing instances, but they are few and far between. To sum it up, if you love a truly classic JRPG, do not miss this one, and if you don't, give it a try anyway, you just might be surprised.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is a great game.
First off, Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch looks brilliant. Level 5 have done a fantastic job of making it look like a Studio Ghibli production. If you like Ghibli stuff and have a PS3 then purchase this game. The gameplay is pretty good. It did annoy me in parts but it's still totally worth it.
Cheapest price I could find, free p&p & super fast delivery! All in all a marvellous experience with Zavvi!
Ni No Kuni is a fantastic game, can't say enough good things about it. Takes all the best bits of Zelda and Pokemon, combines them with beautiful animations from Studio Ghibli and some excellence voice acting, particularly from Drippy, your little Welsh fairy sidekick. Don't delay, worth your day 1 purchase!
Excellent price, the best I could find it out there including the free standard delivery which still only took two days.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is the best JRPG on PS3. It's just plain beautiful and with a lot of detail. The story warms ones heart and the battle system is very addictive, since you have to collect new monsters which fight for you.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is one of the best J-RPG available on PS3! It has great music and graphics, lots of possibilities for upgrading our fighters. The rhythm is slow, there's a lot of "blah blah" and fights are a little messy but it's a great adventure, maybe for younger players. Play it with Japanese voices! 4 stars for me!
Quite simple really, if you are a JRPG or Studio Ghibli fan ... you will love this game! I bought this a few weeks ago now, but not that far into myself due to time (this is why I've given it 4 stars). But what I have played is great; the visual style (typical Ghibli), the voice actors and music are also both very well done, as are some of the weird and wonderful character designs! The combat system is also good. The lighter evenings are fast approaching ... but it is still well worth a purchase!
I couldn't wait for this Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch game. Not only did I receive the game in under 1 week from Australia. But also got it for half price rather then buying it from a retailer. Recommend anyone to buy this wonderful game. GOTY
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is quite simply the best JRPG ever made! It's a must play for any fan of the genre. If you own a PS3, you owe it to yourself to play this gem.
I love Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch. It's a mix of Pokemon and the PlayStation era Final Fantasy, with stunning presentation. The only con is that some of the creature's designs are a little uninspired.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is an excellent game that has lovable characters and an enchanting story line. There are also many quests and bounty hunts to take on, not to mention the alchemy aspects and the taming of monsters to keep players busy. So if you're a fan of Pokemon, then this game is for you.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is the best JRPG I've ever played for this generation, it's as simple as that. It has a great story, astonishing graphics with wonderful Ghibli designs, fantastic game-play and an awesome soundtrack.
This game is an absolute must have if you enjoy JRPG style games and do enjoy anime like my neighbour Totoro or similar. The time flies when you play it. It is such a wonderful and lovable world. Don't miss this gem!
This game is a must have and is simply amazing and adorable. If you are a RPG (specially JRPG) fan - you shouldn't miss it - stunning visuals, wonderful story and story telling, believable characters and magic. And by saying magic I mean it - it is like Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is woven of magic and the love of its creators. Just get it - simply one of the best PS3 exclusives until now.
This highly anticipated JRPG has finally landed and it's totally worth the wait. Beautiful graphics, friendly user interface, appropriate difficulty and most importantly it has a fantastic and funny story. The main story is about 45-50 hours long and if you want to explore everything and collect the platinum trophy game offers you over 80 hours of magical playtime.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is an absolute must buy if you have any interest in the genre (JRPG). You will not regret getting this game. The story and characters will suck you in and there is no getting out. I've been playing video games for decades and this game has totally surprised me with how likeable it is. I even find myself thinking about where to go next and what to do during work. It's just that great! You owe it to yourself to get this game.
Ni No Kuni: Wrathe Of The White Witch is a truly old school RPG which has been missing on the PS3! They somehow stopped making them after the ps2... This game has both the action from a Grandia / Star Ocean kind of game and the story of a Secret of Mana / Final Fantasy kind of game. The gameplay in a free world and fighting in a closed area is good. The fighting is done by pets which are called familiars and you can upgrade these with items and experience points. The story itself is very big and full of dungeons and a open world. Play it to enjoy all it can give! Me and my kids love this game, because there is action and fun for young and old. This is well worth the money and time!
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is a good heart-warming tale of a young boy who has lost his mother. The story at times can be a bit childish but that's refreshing in today's society of blowing things up and killing each other. The gameplay is easy and takes you into the game slowly and the tutorials are really good.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is a great JRPG combining the talents of Level-5 and Studio Ghibli. The fantastically Welsh Drippy is one of the best characters ever.
I am very pleased playing Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch JRPG. It brings together RPG elements such as an open world, side quests, mini games, storyline, combat mechanics and levelling up. For a couple of years most RPGs were dull and Ni No Kuni brings back the reason to love RPGs.
Ni No Kuni Wrath Of The White Witch is a beautiful game from the wonderfully talented souls at Studio Ghibli and Level 5. This game arrives in the nearing sunset of the PS3 generation, one which has been distinctly light on the traditional jRPG (compared to the ps2 generation at least). Providing an experience that is not only visually astounding, but also a game that has a surprising soul and depth. Definitively an experience that defines a generation.
Can't fault Zavvi for the delivery of Ni No Kuni, was sent at the weekend and arrived on Monday via a courier! The courier service could even tell me what hour the driver would be delivering! Excellent service for a great game, thanks!
This Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch game is probably the best JRPG game I have ever played. It's a mixture of final fantasy and Pokémon which means it has a lot to live up to but this game is miles above both franchises. The story and design by the great studio ghibli is amazing and very deep. I would recommend this game to anyone wanting an engrossing journey into the world of anime and Jrpgs. Excellent!
How do I say this Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is easily the best game of this generation in terms of JRPG'S amazing amount of content fantastic story and great characters on par with the likes of final fantasy 6-7. The best tales games out there! One to buy don't miss out. Get it now!
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is excellent. It is very enjoyable and charming. It's exactly what you'd expect from Level 5. The characters are very well done and the game is full of emotion. The art style is very refreshing and a welcome change from other popular games. I definitely would recommend this game!
Hadn't heard much about this game until I saw it for pre-order on here, and I'm so glad I did! I'm not even a quarter of the way into it yet but it's already up there with my all time favourite RPG's. If you're looking for a Final Fantasy-type game then maybe this isn't for you. But if you're like me and just like an engrossing game where hours seem like minutes, then get this! Don't be put off by the 'childlike' graphics (wasn't Windwaker slated for the same thing?). Ghibli do a great job and the game looks gorgeous. The style goes with the story and the story pulls you in like any great game should. To sum it up, buy this game!
I had a lot of anticipation for this game, it's been the only story lead Japanese RPG I've been looking forward to for a long time, I thought I might have been looking into it too much and would be disappointed by it for my own mistakes, but the game does not disappoint in the slightest. The art style by Studio Ghibli is glorious, with the patching from cartoon cut scenes to game rendered scenes do not seem to clash at all, and the English voice acting is tremendous, with Drippy being a constant source of amusement. The combat is enjoyable with the AI leaving a little to be desired, but without giving you full control of the characters or having a mega variables selection it couldn't really be helped. I'm only about 6 hours in and I find the story intriguing and well written (which considering Level 5 had a hand in that is not to be unexpected), I'm having to deal with trivial matters such as sleeping and working in the middle of my Ni No Kuni sessions. This truly is a great collaboration between two fine studios and the end product is all I could want plus more, they do deserve all the success this game can give them.
Ni No Kuni is your typical JRPG - with lots of combat and quite a quirky feel to the game, but an enchanting storyline in an enchanting world. This is one of the best of the genre.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is absolutely fantastic, and this is coming from someone who is making his JRPG debut! It's complex but the tutorials are so easy to follow and teach you the ins and outs of the game really well. They don't just throw everything at you at once and teach you new lessons every hour or so. Visually it's a sight to behold. The cel shading fits the game perfectly with its rolling hills to windy deserts, not forgetting the imaginative enemy design which is superb. There's just so much to do and it will take you a minimum of 35 hours that you'll easily get your money's worth at full retail price!
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a Japanese Roll Playing Game (JRPG), which is one of a few games that have been translated into English and released in the USA and Europe from the guys in the east. A lot of people choose to avoid JRPGs because they are boring and poorly animated, which in this case would be a mistake. During the game you play as Oliver and travel the vast and beautiful world of Ni No Kuni, with the amazingly, brilliant, marvelous Mr. Drippy at your side. You'd regret it if you missed out on this adventure.
