Trailer Park – Ni no Kuni

Ni no Kuni
Though I’ve been waving a fan flag since the first day I’d heard of a joint project between Level-5 and Studio Ghibli on the DS, it was hard not to pick at the way early screens for the game showed a sizable distance between the artwork for the title and the actual in-game results.

Recent word that Level-5 would also be bringing the game to the PlayStation 3 was poised to shut my mouth, and catching the trailer from the official site for the game has done the job and more.

The wait for this game has been at times agonizing, but it really does appear that good things come to the patient gamer. Word from overseas is that the PS3 and DS versions aren’t twins at all, but are unique games sporting key differences, with the DS release coming sooner – so there’s also still plenty to wonder about on the Ni no Kuni front.

In the meantime, you can catch the must-see PS3 trailer for yourself after the break.


  1. That looks so good. Is it still considered to be cel-shaded?

  2. Great question, I’m not entirely sure what to call it, Level-5 is in a league of their own – but if you go back to their PS2 RPG Rogue Galaxy, which was cell-shaded, it definitely appears like an evolution on that style.

  3. I am going to buy both. PS3 version for me, DS for Stace. This is insanely good news.

  4. It seems the PS3 version doesn’t feature any of the Ghibli cutscenes and instead they’re reproduced using the game engine. Is that really the case?

  5. Ok. I NEED both versions of this game. I can’t believe it will almost be here.
    This is indeed great news!
