On the one hand is the normal trepidation that comes regarding any sort of game based on a licensed property. On the other hand is the idea of a Japanese RPG, which can be strange enough on its own, being made infinitely stranger by combining it with the odd mythological designs that have become Ghibli's trademark. Thankfully neither concern is valid and the game is likely to become one of the biggest critical successes of the RPG genre."
