Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (PS3) | FTG Review

FTG Writes: For several years now, gamers have been eagerly awaiting a JRPG that will not only stand the test of time, but also recapture their childhood. This generation, the genre really has been on the downturn, with very few series standing out. Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy franchise has practically become a punch line, and aside from Atlus and their Persona series, no other big names have stepped up to the plate and delivered a credible JRPG this gen. Up-and-coming developers like Mistwalker and Monolith Soft are doing their best with The Last Story and Xenoblade Chronicles respectively, but they were critically acclaimed, poorly sold Wii titles. Luckily, a plucky little developer named Level-5 teamed up with the “Disney” of Japan, Studio Ghibli, and created a title that has done what no other JRPG I’ve played this generation has been able to do: make me care about JRPGs again! (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 9.5/10
