Level-5 Inc., with the help of animators Studio Ghibli bring a world to life that you could pull right from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki (My Neighbor Totoro, Howl’s Moving Castle) with Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. Playing as the young boy Oliver, you travel among two worlds with the power to restore the hearts of the people that were touched by the evil grips of Shadar, the main villain and overseer of the end of the world.
If you stick your hand into a bag of games, you’re bound to pull out a Japanese RPG eventually. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen such a traditional take on the genre, but what Ni no Kuni does differently is where this game truly shines. 5/5
