StickSkills said, "Take away the eye-popping presentation and melodic brilliance, and you have a game that doesn’t really do anything novel. Yet, developer Level-5 gets right what so many competitors have failed to accomplish this generation. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a JRPG that feels modern – scratching every lingering itch a fan of the genre could have. Each aspect of the gameplay work as a perfect complement to its neighbor, and though it’s unlikely to attract new believers to the genre, it’s a prime example of why games like this are still relevant. Ni No Kuni has arrived, and if you’ve been waiting for a JRPG to wow you this generation, you owe it to yourself to accompany Oliver on his heart-warming quest."
