There’s Still Room For Charm In Games

Ni no Kuni, like its creators at Studio Ghibli, is not afraid to provide more innocent, perhaps hokey, charm or delight. It is willing to revisit childhood, with its boundless sense of possibility and whimsy, and let players feel like a youngster on a grand adventure, where the only things that will happen are exciting, courageous or moving, not morally ambiguous or riddled with betrayal. Simple heroism is celebrated, as are simple values like generosity and kindness, and helping people with even the smallest, seemingly trivial problem. (Culture, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch)
