Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review | PSU

"You know a videogame has grabbed your full attention when you step into its world for the first time and six hours later you haven’t even moved for a toilet break. Generally, though not always, it tends to be role-playing games that have the power to absorb me in their open-world environments, lose me in their in-depth mechanics and keep me glued to the screen for hours on end, franchises like Oblivion, Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts." (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 9/10

I'm not into these kinda games at all but the graphics and art style are just amazing. The story seems really good also. So this is prettying a definite but for me now.

I don't think any of those are "franchises". They are just fantastic ways to cap off a generation.

Beyond: Two Souls is a new IP from Quantic Dream. They don't do sequels.

Ni No Kuni, I see like most Ghibli productions as a self-contained story. To produce a sequel, Ghibli would have to agree to a sequel, and I don't think that will happen.

The same with The Last of Us. Like most post-apocalyptic fiction, it's a singular, self-contained story, as revealed by ND. I hope they don't make a sequel as most stand-alone works are more powerful by the less-is-more standard. It leaves you wanting more, but you shouldn't get it.

Well Level 5 have said that if Ni-No-Kuni does well they'll think about making a sequel and I very much doubt that Naughty Dog would waste the potential of TLOU as a franchise. Beyond is probably the only one there that won't get a sequel.

I just started the Japanese all-in-one edition today (it's basically the same as the US version). I played already like 4 hours non-stop and I just paused to rant about it on the internet!

There's just something magical about this game. It's like playing FFIV, FFVI or FFVII for the first time, except now you feel like you are in a Ghibli's fantasy world adventuring. The world is rich in all sorts of ways!

I recommend everyone who likes games to buy Ni No Kuni! We need to show the Japanese developers (Level 5) we are willing to pay for great stuff like this.

Happy gaming moments everyone :)
