Tales from Earthsea

Tales from Earthsea
While it won’t likely threaten to steal any of Scott Pilgrim’s thunder, Studio Ghibli’s Tales from Earthsea is finally hitting theaters next week – directed by Goro Miyazaki, or Miyazaki Jr. rather than Sr. if you prefer.

I say finally because the film released to Japan in 2006, and pretty well every other continent on Earth since. Whether the wait for Disney to bring it here has anything to do with it having some of the most negative reviews I’ve ever seen for a Ghibli film remains to be seen next Friday – I like my first viewing of a Ghibli film to be in the theater.

In the meantime, catch Disney’s half attempt at a trailer after the break.

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.
