A story about a boy, a fairy doll and the boy’s quest to revive his recently deceased mother. From the minds of Level-5 and studio Ghibli, comes this role-playing magical adventure. Ni No Kuni (or The Another World) was first announced in the Japanese publication Famitsu in September 2008 for the Nintendo DS. Later in 2010, it was revealed that the game was in development for the PlayStation 3 and a world premier trailer of “Ninokuni: Shiroki Seihai no Joou” (Queen of the White Ashes) was shown in TGS 2010.
Many English-speaking players were wondering if this will be another Japanese import, but wonder no more … Level-5 president Akihiro Hino confirmed that an English version of the game is in production for an early 2012 release in North America, exclusively for PlayStation 3. I leave you with some gameplay footage from TGS 2011 …
Here is a second Gameplay video to demonstrate the game’s “Final Fantasy/Pokemon” battles!
