Pixelitis Review: Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

"Japanophiles already know the talent behind Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch makes it one of the most promising titles to come out of Japan in recent years. Not only does the game have thriving Japanese developer Level-5 behind it, but it also has Studio Ghibli—Japan’s prominent animated film studio—at the aesthetic and musical helm.

The first introductory moments of Ni no Kuni prove that the partnership has paid off—visually, at least. It becomes clear after a dozen hours in that the game dodges some pitalls that have poisoned Western reception of Japanese role-playing games in recent years but not all. Unfortunately, Ni no Kini missteps into redundant problems of the genre, holding the title back from reaching sublime heights."

- Lowell Bell (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 8/10
