Ni no Kuni’s Jump Is Both Useless And Amazing

Kotaku: When playing video games, it's easy to get caught up in the notion of utility. Is this ability useful to me, does this skill make my character more powerful, will it improve the ratio of my numbers to my opponents' numbers, robot, robot, numbers, beep, boop, etc. (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3)

You really had to make an article about this?

It's Kotaku, they don't need to make any articles yet they do it anyways.

Not-so-important Kotaku article.

You just described every Kotaku article I think.
I've found uses for it. It's good to quickly move from place to place especially when you're in a shop or something that forces you to walk. You can also use it to chase down enemies that run from you.

Yeah that's what I was about to say. In one of the dungeons, the character will walk slowly after being cursed, but jumping will make you go faster. Actually, the game itself says in the description that it's not very useful.

Not only that, but you can jump to grab those golden power up orbs during battle too, as opposed to sitting underneath it and waiting for it to drop.

It's to early in the morning for this shit.

Just vote down Kotaku. I do everytime I see one their articles.

Agreed. It be foolish not to listen to a saxophone playing horse.

*Don't know where you got that but its pretty boss, not gonna lie.

Hahaha, it's from a mock(re-cut) episode of Star Trek TNG on youtube. Although their version is black&white. Hilarious.

It adds excitement to me jumping while being chased...

Knowing it won't let me access areas I can't walk to doesn't stop me from spending way too much time trying. What can I say. I'm a jumper.

i actually had no idea you could jump and im already 10 hours in @_@ (currently up to the part where you have to go to the volcano) but then again ive yet to turn in any of my stamp card things, i just pretty much horde them :3
