Level-5 Wants Ni No Kuni To Be A Series

News Bandai Namco DS RPG Playstation 3 Nintendo Sony

Despite the lower than expected sales for the recently released Playstation 3 version of Ni No Kuni (Wrath of the White Witch), Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino has revealed that the studio would like to develop more titles in the Ni No Kuni universe. Speaking with 4Gamer, Hino assures fans of the series that these will come as additional games. However, it could also open up to an anime movie, considering that the animation of the game was created by Studio Ghibli, a legendary animation studio. Nothing is in concrete yet, Hiro explained, but the additional games will expand the current world.

Hino had also takled about why there are two versions of the game (a DS version of the game was released in Japan last year). The DS version was created in order to allow the game to be experienced by as many Japanese people as they can. The Playstation 3 version, however, was all about the Studio Ghibli animation and the soundtrack if composer Joe Hisaishi. Hino revealed that he wanted both to be at a movie-quality level, hence the Playstation 3 version.

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!
