'Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch' (PS3) Wizard's Edition Adds Loads Of Goodies

by Rainier on July 2, 2012 @ 3:48 a.m. PDT

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a fantasy RPG telling the 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 back his recently-deceased mother.

Along the way Oliver encounters many new friends who help him learn and grow. He can also befriend the wonderful creatures that inhabit this parallel universe, turning them into pets that Oliver can raise and collect a whole menagerie of. Why, he can even use these critters to battle other creatures on his behalf! Join Oliver as he explores the vast new world and faces a variety of formidable enemies.

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 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.

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 Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Wizard's Edition will include a 300+ page hardback physical copy of The Wizard's Companion, the spellbook Oliver uses throughout his journey in the game.  The full-colour Wizard's Companion contains a bestiary of all the creatures found in the game along with in-depth item descriptions, spells and history of the other world.  The limited-run Wizard's Edition will also contain a plush doll of Drippy, Oliver's guide through his adventures, as well as exclusive "golden mite" and "golden drongo" DLC familiars. 

Fans who pre-order Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch at participating retailers will also receive two exclusive familiars developed especially for the western release: flutterby and griffy.
