"Studio Ghibli are known worldwide as the Disney of Japan, having created masterpiece after masterpiece, nearly everything with the Ghibli name attached to it ends up receiving a great deal of fanfare. Such is the case with Level 5′s latest RPG adventure into a magical world that could only come from Ghibli called Ni No Kuni.
There has been so much hype surrounding Ni No Kuni with some of the more extreme fanatics calling it the next Final Fantasy or Tales before it was even released in English. Don’t get more wrong now, Ni No Kuni is a truly magical experience, one that will not soon be forgotten. It is by no means the next Final Fantasy, it’s not even the next Tales. What it is however, is the first Ni No Kuni."
