Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review | Gamereactor UK

GR-UK writes: "Level 5 and Studio Ghibli have pooled their considerable resources to produce a real fairytale in traditional Japanese style.

Young Oliver is an ordinary boy who lives in an ordinary town with his mother. There is a grand destiny waiting for him, and it materializes in the form of a family tragedy. The grieving boy is met by a most unusual fairy, who leads him into a wholly new world, straight out of the pages of a storybook, and leads Oliver to grow into a wizard and hero.

The game looks like something straight out of the Studio Ghibli film. Oliver's small hometown exists alongside a fantastical fairytale world, inhabited by a vast host of peculiar creatures. We jump back and forth between these two worlds, which both emphasizes their difference, and also draws unexpected parallels between them." (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 9/10
