Rumour: Namco Bandai Not Opposed To Releasing Ni No Kuni For The 3DS

Ni no Kuni captivated many anime fans and roleplaying game enthusiasts when it hit retails shelves earlier this year.

Released as a collaborative effort between Level-5 and Hiyao Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli, Ni no Kuni found a good home - and a receptive audience - on the PlayStation 3.

Yet it might branch out from there, according to an executive from publisher Namco Bandai who recently said that his company wasn't opposed to releasing the Award-winning PlayStation 3 RPG for the Nintendo 3DS.

If true, it would be interesting to see. Wasn't the original Ni No Kuni (Japan-only) on the DS? JRPGs feel right on a handheld, and a lot of people would be able to enjoy it. It's an awesome game but I think the gameplay is better suited for a handheld.

Next, put Xenoblade Chronicles on the 3DS. Yes please!

Agreed. I'd much rather play an 80+ hour RPG on a console that isn't bound to the living room. Lets me get more accomplished in the game.

sitharrefus2013d ago

Ya it was on the DS, would be great to see this game release on the 3DS :D

It would sell really well.

Bring it to the Vita as well.

majiebeast2013d ago (Edited 2013d ago )

Rather have it on Vita so it actually looks good.

JakemanPS319942013d ago

I think they are talking about the DS version of the game, which I here is very different.

AnotherProGamer2013d ago

in the article it says the PS3 version

READ....they mention both to recap it's history with Nintendo for those who didn't know.

A Prior Ni No Kuni game was released in Japan only for DS.....different game though.

This one...the PS3 the version they would think about porting over since it's the new one and would have the most interest.

resident evil revelations looks miles better than anything on the ps2.

Neko_Mega2013d ago

What does PS2 have to do with this gen?

My PC games look better then resident evil revelations lol.

Sorry, you fail.

xXBlondieVanHarlowXx2013d ago (Edited 2013d ago )

Ps2? Seriously dude? I get you wanted to reply and defend Ninty but but c'mon!

Apples and Broccoli.

I agree with majiebeast, a Vita version would be great.

AdvanceWarsSgt2013d ago

Because fanboys want all games to only be on their platform of choice.

Moncole2013d ago

Ni No Kuni is on the DS so its not an PS3 exclusive.

Qrphe2013d ago

Because they'd probably be Japan-only again.

chrispseuphoria2013d ago

Namco Bandai don't have faith in the Vita within North America. Hideo Baba, the creator of the Tales of series said that.

lizard812882013d ago

Sometimes I wonder if Namco Bandai has faith in releasing their games over seas....Alot of their games are JPN only, expect for things like SC and a few other games.

Killzoner992013d ago

lol, like this game could even run on the 3DS. That's just cruel , why would you get the Nintendorks hopes up like that? Crossplay on Vita will be next.
