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

Ni No Kuni is a clean, wholesome, uncomplicated love letter to the golden age of Japanese RPGs, to a time when sprite-based adventures across sprawling world maps and epic dungeons held supreme. In a certain light, it's surprising to see the need for such a letter, but during nearing the end of the PlayStation 2, the traditional single-player JRPG fell out of favor. The global rise of MMORPGs, the advent of open-world Western RPGs and darker-themed JRPGs like Shin Megami Tensei, and the saturation of JRPGs themselves during the era led to a developmental shift, illustrated by the popular Final Fantasy series as it moved beyond Final Fantasy X to its more recent downfall with Final Fantasy XIV Online. The classic JRPG is in dire need of a revival, and Ni no Kuni is the phoenix down. (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 4.5/5
