Ni no Kuni (DS) review - A great RPG North America never got (RPG Land)

The PS3 version of Ni no Kuni will come to the West in 2013, but there was also a very impressive DS game released in Japan in 2010. RPG Land gives it a "Great" rating, saying:
"Ni no Kuni is what happens when ordinary and simple pieces are put together by skilled people in wonderful ways. Ni no Kuni doesn’t dazzle with arcane mechanics, complicated story twists, tortured characters, or highly detailed polygons; it sticks to simplicity, and does that better than almost any other game on the market right now. It has a few flaws, and doesn’t stretch its wings and capitalize on some of its unique potential, but those flaws do not add up to anything that could drive people away from the game altogether."

The story is too old to be commented.

We missed out on a gem here. :(
Thank goodness we're getting the PS3 game in English, at least.

I didn't realize this was also for the DS.

Edit: Just read the subtitle. So this is different from the Wrath of the White Witch? Awesome.

It has a lot of overlap in the story, but the PS3 version takes it farther. This one has a much different battle system and is easier than the PS3 version (younger audience on DS), but is still a great game possessing a lot of the missing aspects of todays Japanese RPGs.

People missing the "golden days" would do well to pick up both versions. It's just a shame this one is apparently going to stay Japan-only.
