CGM Reviews: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

When we first arrived at this current console generation way back in 2006, expectations from JRPG fans were high. There’d been a flood of quality games, both from expected sources like Square-Enix, and surprise upstarts like Atlus that gave fans of the genre a reliable, regular source of quality gaming. The bold experimentation of the Persona series, the grandiose efforts of Final Fantasy and even the flawed but stunningly ambitious space epic of Xenosaga all set a new high watermark for JRPGs that fans expected would be continued on the PS3 and Xbox 360 with the same frequency. That didn’t happen. But every once in a while, a game comes out that brings that promise back to the genre and shows what happens when people who care really take advantage of the power of today’s consoles. Ni no Kuni is one of those games. (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 90/100
