Ni no Kuni: The JRPG returns to form

Your comments on our articles.

The makers of Spirited Away and Dragon Quest VIII are here to save RPGs from grey skies and icky scrubland

There was no way that a collaboration between RPG masters Level 5 and anime-peddlers Studio Ghibli was going to be anything other than absolutely stunning, and so it has proven with Ni no Kuni (literally: 'Second Country'), an adventure so lovingly crafted that we awarded the Japanese version 91% a few months back.

I hope this game sells by the bucket load as Jrpgs have been scarce this gen. Also, this game will be the best on PS3 for me if it gives me the full on JRPG experience like the good old golden days.

Cannot wait for this. Got the DS version and it's fantastic. This and Toki to Towa are top of my wish list.
