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

Reviewer Greg Newbegin writes, "If there’s one thing that’s immediately striking about Level 5′s Ni no Kuni (literal translation: Second Country, but this can be translated in multiple ways), and that’s how darned gorgeous it looks. Developed in tandem with Studio Ghibli — yes, THAT Studio Ghibli, the animators behind such gems as Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro — there is a level of quality and attention to detail that is almost literally second to none. Certain cutscenes are entirely anime, while the in-game engine has been developed to mimic this style as closely as possible — and it looks wonderful. In addition, the music was scored by legendary Joe Hisaishi himself (known for his work with Studio Ghibli movies), and ebbs and flows throughout the narrative, which really defines an epic experience – never before has a videogame managed the kinds of feelings that Ni no Kuni evokes, and it comes highly recommended to fans of Japanese animation." (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 8.5/10
