Ni No Kuni PS3 To Grace The West In Early 2012

TGS 2011 Sony RPG Playstation 3 News

Ni No Kuni: Queen of the Holy White Ash is the PS3 version of a RPG collaboration between Level 5 and Studio Ghibli, the animations studio of legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki. Studio Ghibli were responsible for Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle and we all know how beautiful they look. Now, imagine the excitement of Studio Ghibli and Level-5 fans when they hear that Level-5 have plans to localise the game and release it in early 2012.

During the Sony Computer Entertainment Asia conference, which was near the Tokyo Game Show site and held yesterday, there was a panel involving Level-5 President Akihiro Hino. It was during this session when he announced the exciting news. In fact, he revealed that the localisation was in production as he spoke. There was no mention of the DS version, but I suspect that version will stay in Japan.

The PS3 version will contain additional story beyond the ending of the DS version as well as downloadable content post game release. No details on DLC have been announced.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
