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.

Customers that pre-order the game at U.S. GameStop and Canadian EB Games locations will be able to reserve an exclusive SteelBook case with alternate artwork, available while supplies last when they pick up their copy of the game.

Customers that pre-order the game at Amazon.com will receive an exclusive griffy familiar, not seen in the original Japanese version of the game.  Able to spy its prey from great distances, the griffy is known as the Hunter of the Skies. With its fearsome Phantom Fangs and its potent Petrifying Puff, this creature is not to be trifled with, especially when it evolves into its most lethal forms, the griffurnace or the griffrigerator.
